Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1. Section 11-129 of the administrative code of the city of New York, as added by local law number 19 for the year 2009, is amended by adding a new subdivision d to read as follows:

d. The department shall establish and maintain a system to allow owners to receive a receipt of payment by e-mail and/or print when the department receives a payment on a statement of account. The department shall notify owners of the availability of such receipt system on the statement of account. Such receipt shall include the property address, borough, block and lot number, the amount paid and applied toward the tax, charge or assessment on the statement of account, the date the payment was received, and may include additional information as the commissioner of finance deems appropriate. The department shall not charge a fee for use of such receipt system and shall require owners to register with the department in order to receive a receipt. The city shall not be liable for any damages as a result of failure to provide the requested receipts, nor shall any cause of action arise from such failure.
