Statement of Basis and Purpose


The Department of Buildings (DOB) is proposing to amend section 105-02 of Title 1 of the Rules of the City of New York relating to tax abatements for solar electric generating systems.  These amendments will streamline the application process for abatements, especially regarding electrical plans and electrical and construction sign-off.  These amendments will make the process for obtaining a tax abatement easier for applicants.


DOB’s authority for this rule is found in Section 643 and 1043(a) of the New York City Charter and Title 4-C of Article 4 of the Real Property Tax Law of New York State.
