Below are the NYC Tax Commission's guidelines and capitalization rates derived to aid hearing officers in their review of applications for NYC Real Property Tax assessment correction for the 2024/25 tax year.  However, we cannot overemphasize that information about the specific property in question and the hearing officer's experience and knowledge take precedence in making determinations on applications for review; the guidelines are only an aid.

The Tax Commission's review of an application for a particular property is based primarily on the information submitted by the applicant, including but not limited to, the income and expenses for that property for the preceding year.  The guidelines aid the hearing officers in comparing a particular property to similarly situated properties in the City for purposes of applying an appropriate capitalization rate and evaluating whether anomalies may exist in the income or expenses reported that require further inquiry.  Where a valuation is based on estimated income and expense information, the guidelines aid the hearing officer in identifying appropriate comparable properties. 

In addition to the guidelines themselves, the Tax Commission also is providing a ranked listing of sample neighborhoods throughout the City for use in conjunction with the guidelines for residential properties (other than class 1 properties, which are valued based on comparable sales).  The residential guidelines include four sets of ranges of income, expenses and capitalization rates, which overlap.  The rankings are an aid in determining the appropriate range to be applied in a given situation. 

The rankings were derived using most recent publicly available demographic information that the Tax Commission believes to be relevant to property values such as household income, rent burden, education information, proximity to public transportation, percentage of residents working, and crime statistics.  The Tax Commission makes NO representation that these rankings are scientifically established, that they are exhaustive or that they are indisputable.  These rankings are for broad comparison purposes only.  Again, information about the specific property in question and the hearing officer's experience and knowledge take precedence in making determinations.
