NY Tax Lien Sale Update Hardship Declaration.

On December 14, 20201, liens for property taxes and charges will be sold, which means that homeowners who have not paid property taxes become tax liens that may be sold in a tax lien sale. However, there are ways in which you can keep your home by resolving these unpaid charges. 

  1. You can pay what you owe by visiting www.nyc.gov/payonline
  2. Payment agreements are also available for tax liens matters– a Standard Payment Agreement which allows homeowners to pay their property taxes in installments, and PT AID Payment Agreement which allows homeowners to defer their property tax payments based on arguments that the property owner cannot make payments due to hardships or unexpected events.
  3. As COVID-19 continues to deteriorate the financial situation of many families across the country, homeowners can also submit a COVID-19 hardship declaration if can prove that they’re unable to make payments due to issues related to the pandemic.
  4. If your unpaid taxes are based on emergency repairs, you can submit an emergency repair certification (only for a tax class one property).
  5. Senior Citizens and Disabled Homeowners can qualify for the Senior Citizen Homeowners’ Exemption (SCHE) and Disabled Homeowners’ Exemption (DHE) which reduces their property taxes on their homes.
