Some New York City homeowners will be eligible to receive a $150 property tax rebate. 

The property tax rebate is for homeowners whose New York City property is their primary residence and whose combined income is $250,000 or less. 

Most recipients of the School Tax Relief for Homeowners (STAR) exemption or credit will automatically qualify and will not need to take any action to receive the rebate. Some STAR recipients may receive a letter asking for additional information. 

If you are not currently receiving STAR, but believe you may qualify for the rebate, you can apply for the property tax rebate online or by mail.

Visit nyc.gov/propertytaxrebate for more information.

For purposes of the tax rebate, income is defined as the federal adjusted gross income (AGI) from tax year 2020, with adjustments for certain losses:

  • Property owners with income less than $250,000: If your adjusted gross income as reported on your federal tax return (Line 11 for Form 1040) is less than $250,000, you will likely qualify for the rebate.
  • Property owners with income close to $250,000: If you reported losses on federal schedules C, D, E, or F, any losses over $3,000 will be added back to income in the calculation for purposes of eligibility for the rebate.

Visit nyc.gov/propertytaxrebate for more information.

If you are up to date on your property taxes as of June 30, 2022, you will be mailed a check in August of 2022.

If you have outstanding property taxes as of June 30, 2022, the rebate will be applied as a credit to your account, reducing or eliminating the taxes that you owe. If your credit has been applied to taxes you owe you will receive a message on your property tax bill.

If you do not receive your check by the end of September, contact the Department of Finance online at nyc.gov/dofcustomerservice. You will need to provide the property's borough, block, and lot number as well as the names of the owners on the deed.

The deadline to submit the Property Tax Rebate application is November 15, 2022.

Most recipients of the STAR exemption or credit will automatically qualify and will not need to take any action to receive the property tax rebate. 

If you are not currently receiving STAR, but believe you may qualify for the rebate, you can apply online or complete and submit a paper application.

You will need to include the following with your application:

  • The name and social security number of all property owners or beneficiaries of a trust who use this property as their primary residence
