Do I need to renew my not-for-profit property tax exemption? Yes, any nonprofit organization that receives a full or partial property tax exemption is required to submit a renewal form each year.
How do I renew the exemption? Each year, in the fall, we will send you a letter containing renewal information for your organization. Please use that to login to www.nyc.gov/filenfp to file your renewals.
We are going to sell our property; must I still complete the renewal form? Yes, if your organization currently owns the property, you must complete the renewal form. If the new owner is a not-for-profit, it may complete the Not-For-Profit Organization's Tax Exemption Application to receive the benefit.
I have a contemplated use exemption, but the construction or renovation is complete, or nearly so. What must I do to keep my benefit? You must submit the renewal form indicating that the construction or renovation is almost complete, and submit a new exemption application detailing the new use of the property. (New applications are available at on www.nyc.gov/nfp or by contacting 311.) An inspection may be required.
Be sure to check all of the information on the Owner/Contact Information tab and make any necessary changes. We will use the contact address, email, and telephone number on this form to contact your organization. If what you see is not correct, please change it. The only thing you cannot change is Owner Name. Contact us if you have questions about the displayed owner name.
Make sure to save your work before you close the form if you are not going to submit it. You will be able to resume working on it later.
Make sure you provide enough information in the text box to satisfy the minimum character requirement.
Make sure to attach documents before you submit. Use the Attachments tab. It works just like adding attachments to an email.
Once you submit the form you will see a confirmation screen. This certifies that the form has been submitted. If you do not see the confirmation screen, then your renewal has not been submitted.
After submitting your renewal, you will have the option to print a copy for your records.
May I save my form and return to it before submitting? Yes, you can save your work and come back later to complete the form.
What happens if I leave my work without saving or submitting? The application will time out after one hour; be sure to save or submit your work, or it will be lost.
How may I provide additional information? The renewal form will allow you to upload your required supporting documentation. The following file formats (less than 5 MB each) are supported: pdf, jpg, jpeg, doc, and docx. If you are unable to submit your supporting documentation via the renewal form, you may do so via the contact form at www.nyc.gov/contactnonprofit. Make sure to include your borough-block-lot number.
How will I know that my form was uploaded successfully? A confirmation email will be sent to the email address you provided.
Can I print a copy of my renewal form? Yes, once you have successfully submitted your renewal application you will be given an option to print it.
I answered yes to a question and a textbox opened. I typed my answer but am getting an error message. What did I do wrong? You probably need to type a longer response. All text boxes require at least 75 characters.
