This report lists information in the City's computer records with respect to open petitions challenging real property tax assessments pursuant to Article 7 of the Real Property Tax Law: the index number and year the petition was commenced, the name of the petitioner, the name of the attorney for the petitioner, and various note of issue codes. The codes you may see are:
"1" for filing a certified statement of income and expenses with the Law Department;
"2" for filing a note of issue;
"3" for defective petition because the Tax Commission dismissed the predicate application;
"4" marked off court calendar, but deemed open by the Tax Commission; and
"5" for a fifth-year extension under RPTL §718 agreed to with the Law Department
"0" or a blank means there is no code.
Petitions that are invalid or abandoned are closed on the City's records of assessment review petitions. Only open petitions appear on this report. Generally, inactive petitions filed more than 15 years ago have been marked as closed.
