Rule Full Text

Title 4-C of Article 4 of the New York State Real Property Tax Law allowed a property owner in a city of 1,000,000 or more people to receive a real property tax abatement for either the installation of a solar electric generating system, or for electric energy storage equipment on a Real Property Class 1, 2 or 4 building or site, but not both.

Chapter 485 of 2023 of the laws of the state of New York amended Title 4-C to add eligibility for a property to receive individual tax abatements both for the installation of a solar electric generating system and for the installation of electric energy storage equipment as of January 1, 2024. DOB is proposing to amend Section 105-02 of its rules to account for this change. DOB is also proposing to amend the end date for eligibility for a tax abatement provided in Section 105-02 of its rules to match the end date for eligibility change to on or before January 1, 2036 made in Title 4-C by Chapter 485.
