NYC Council Member Andy King will host an information session about the city’s upcoming tax lien sale on Tuesday, May 14, at 06:00 p.m. – 08:00 p.m. at the Williamsbridge NAACP Early Childhood Educational Center, 680 East 219th Street, Bronx, NY 10467.
The workshop will be conducted by representatives of the New York City Department of Finance, Environmental Protection, and Housing Preservation and Development, who will meet with property owners faced with a lien sale. Properties appearing on the tax lien sale list may be there because of overdue property tax, water or sewer charges. After a certain time, the city sells the tax liens. There are more than 700 properties within the boundaries of Council Member King’s 12th District on the 2019 lien-sale list, according to the latest information from the city Department of Finance.
The last day for property owners on the tax lien sale list to pay their debt or enter into a payment agreement is July 19, 2019.
Certain current property tax exemptions or credits may result in the removal of property from the tax lien sale at risk pool. Anyone who believes that they are eligible for a senior citizen, disabled homeowner, or veterans exemption or if they have received the New York State circuit breaker credit for tax year 2018, then fill out a Lien Sale Property Exemption Application and return it to DOF. Active military personnel may request relief from the Lien Sale, Tax Warrants, Environmental Control Board judgments, and parking judgments.
Anyone unable to attend the information session should call 311 and state that they have a tax lien problem. The call will be transferred directly to the Department of Finance.
