Payment Information
If you pay your own property tax, we encourage you to pay electronically to reduce the possibility of error.  If you prefer to pay by mail, you can mail your payment with the coupon on your Property Tax Bill. Please write your account number, which is your borough, block and lot number, on any payment that you mail to us along with the tax period the payment is for. Property Tax payments can also be made in person at any of our Business Centers.

You can pre-pay what you owe for the next payment period. You will get a discount if you pay your property taxes for the entire tax year in advance. This is the amount shown on the line: "Everything You Owe".

If a bank or mortgage lender pays your property tax, you will not receive a Property Tax Bill in the mail unless you are responsible for paying other charges, such as sidewalk or emergency repairs. Non-property tax charges are usually not included in the payment made by your bank or mortgage company; you must pay them yourself.

Even if we don’t send you your property tax bill, you can always download it here. If you believe the "Previous Balance" shown on the bill has been paid, but not credited, contact 311 or Email Property Tax Account Inquiries. If there is an error, we will correct the records.
