DOB Fee Exemption Clarification
NYC Department of Buildings Bulletin #2014-027 clarifies the acceptable documentation for claiming fee exemption on appropriate properties. Properties include, but are not limited to not-for-profit, New York City, New York State and Federal owned properties.
To prevent project delays, it’s important to be prepared with the appropriate documents at the time of your filing. Some highlights from the Building Bulletin are:
– Documentation accepted for Government owned properties or not-for-profit organizations are a Department of Finance “Final Assessment Roll,” or “Tentative Assessment Roll,” that indicates the taxable/billable assessed value as zero.
– All documents submitted must be for the current year or most recent billing periods.
The entire building bulletin may be viewed at this link. If you should have any questions or require our assistance, don’t hesitate to reach out to us at email@example.com or (212) 563-6760. We’ll be glad to help.
