You can sign up to pay your property tax bill monthly through auto-payment. You will be paying your upcoming property taxes in advance of their due date. Once you enroll, your payments will start on the first day of the following month. For example, if you sign up in January, the first payment would be made on February 1.
All tax classes and quarterly and semi-annual payers will be able to choose the monthly payment option.
To be eligible for monthly advance payments, you must be up to date with payments. Past due taxes will not be included in these payments. You must pay past due taxes separately.
If your property taxes are paid through your bank or mortgage servicer you are not eligible to sign up for monthly advance.

Depending upon registration, your monthly bills will be approximately 1/3 of the amount due quarterly, if you have 3 months remaining to pay your upcoming taxes due. Your monthly bills will be approximately 1/6 of the amount due semi-annually, if you have 6 months remaining to pay your upcoming taxes due.
January and July bills will be prorated to account for any changes to your taxes as a result of the annual reassessment of your property value or changes to the tax rates. If you register in the middle of a billing cycle, the withdrawals for the first months will be prorated to reflect for the total amount owed that cycle.
If you register for monthly advance payments less than 1 month before your next property tax bill is due, the first withdrawal will be for the entire amount of the bill.
Monthly Advance Payments must be made using auto pay and are withdrawn on the 1st of every month. Withdrawals will begin the month after you register. Registration takes 24 hours. You will receive a monthly electronic statement and get an email receipt when the withdrawal has been completed.
If you are already registered with auto pay, you will need to login and change to the monthly advance payment option.
Auto Pay with DOF Withdrawal
You can set up automatic payment of your property taxes from your bank account by allowing DOF to automatically withdraw the amounts due from your savings or checking account every property tax payment period.
You can only use a bank account; you cannot use a credit or debit card.
DOF must receive your completed application at least 7 days before your property taxes are due for those taxes to be paid automatically.
DOF will withdraw the funds on the date the taxes are due. It may take 2 to 3 business days for the withdrawal to post to your property tax account.
You can apply for, cancel, or update automatic payment online with NYCePay.
