Storefront Registry

You must register with the City if you own a property with ground-floor or second-floor commercial premises (storefronts).

The storefront filing requirement applies to all tax class two and four property owners with ground-floor or second-floor storefronts, even if you are otherwise exempt from filing an annual income and expense statement. Owners of class one property in commercially zoned areas must register their storefronts if the space was vacant or owner-occupied for any days during the previous year.

You must register your storefront by filing a Storefront Registration. Please refer to the storefront registry worksheets on the RPIE Forms Page or the storefront registry user guide.

Owners of class two and four properties with ground-floor or second-floor storefronts must file a Supplemental Storefront Registration form annually to report storefronts vacant as of June 30 and December 31 each year. Owners of designated class one properties are not required to file a Supplemental Storefront Registration.

The deadlines to file your Supplemental Storefront Registry are:

  • August 15 to report storefronts vacant as of June 30.
  • February 15 of the following year to report storefronts vacant as of December 31.
