Law allows local governments to extend deadline for filing property tax abatements to July 15

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo has signed legislation authorizing local governments to extend the deadline for filing property tax abatements to July 15.

In an announcement, Cuomo’s office said the measure is “in recognition of the hardships many families and businesses continue to face as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.”

“New Yorkers and businesses all across the state have suffered both personal and economic hardships from the COVID-19 pandemic,” Governor Cuomo said. “Extending the deadline for filing property tax abatements to July 15th will help provide these individuals and businesses with some much-needed assistance to help recover from the devastating effects of the pandemic as we begin to enter a new normal.”
