Personal Income Tax & Non-resident NYC Employee Payments (NYC-1127)

Frequently Asked Questions

Any New York City employee who was a nonresident of the City (the five NYC boroughs) during any part of a particular tax year must file an 1127 return. In most cases, if you received an 1127.2 statement from your employer, you must file an 1127 return.

You are considered an employee of the City of New York if you are employed by the NYPD, FDNY, the Department of Finance, Department of Sanitation, or any of the other New York City government agencies.

Please go to e-Services to file online. You will need to register and set up an account. Alternatively, you may mail your 1127 return to:

NYC Department of Finance
Section 1127
P.O. Box 5563
Binghamton, NY 13902-5563

Please include a copy of your New York State return, including all schedules, and your wage statement (form 1127.2).

Please go to e-Services to upload the additional documents if you filed the return online.
You can also mail the documents to:
NYC Department of Finance
Refunds Processing Unit – Section 1127
59 Maiden Lane, 20th Floor
New York, NY 10038

You can expect to receive your refund within 60 days. If you haven’t received your refund after 60 days, please go to e-Services and check your refund status. You can also email us at businessrefunds.

The 1127 refund is issued the same method by which your payroll is received. If you receive direct deposit for your payroll, the refund would be deposited into the same account where your payroll is deposited. If you receive a paper check, you would receive a check in the mail. If you receive direct deposit for your payroll, please check your bank statement before contacting us about an 1127 refund. Your refund may have already been deposited into your bank account.

Go to e-Services and click on “Where’s my refund?”, Select SS# under the ID type, and put in your SS# under ID. Select non-resident city employees and select calendar filer. Input the refund tax year and the refund amount expected and then click search.

If you are a spouse of an NYC employee, and you filed a joint return, the 1127 return may have you listed you as the NYC employee. This will erroneously create a letter indicating a liability until the return is manually reviewed and corrected.
