Create an eFiling Account

Create an eFiling account to access DOB NOW systems, make payments, schedule appointments, and check the status of filings submitted to the Department. To begin, you will need an active email address. Complete the eFiling Registration Form and follow the remaining Registration Steps below. After submitting your information, you will receive a message to activate your account.

NOTE: A secondary email address field allows you to provide an additional email address that can be used to log into DOB NOW: Build and Safety and to be assigned a role in DOB NOW filings. Only filings associated with the email address you log in with will appear on your DOB NOW dashboard.

Registration Steps

If you are a Property Owner, Building Manager, Owner Representative, or other non-DOB licensed personnel, follow these three (3) easy steps to create your eFiling account:

  1. Go to eFiling Registration Form and fill out the account information.

  2. Select I do not have a license or DOB-issued ID#.

  3. Read the Agreement section and click Submit. You will receive two (2) emails. Your account will not be active until you get the second email.

    1. You must click the link sent in the first email to activate your account.

    2. The second email confirms your enrollment.

    3. You can then use your eFiling email and password to login to DOB NOW: Build, DOB NOW: Safety, and the NYC Development HUB.
