Int 0524-2022 ADavid M. Carr Amended and Coupled on General OrdersInterest rates applicable to installment agreements for the payment of property tax arrears.IntroductionThis bill would authorize the New York City Banking Commission to recommend, and the Council to adopt, an interest rate that would be applicable to the property tax arrears that accrue while an eligible property with an assessed value of $250,000 or less is the subject of a valid payment agreement plan with the Department of Finance. Eligible properties must be the primary resident of the homeowner(s) whose total income does not exceed $200,000. These threshold cover 82 percent on New York City primary resident homeowners.
