WSJ: Co-op and condo owners will pay sharply higher property taxes next year, under a preliminary assessment roll released Friday by the Bloomberg administration. The city attributed the tax increases, due to take effect in July, to higher market values placed on apartment buildings by tax assessors.
Owners of single-family homes would pay 2.8% more.
This translates into an average tax increase of $384 for co-ops, $490 for condos, and $107 for single-family home owners. In Manhattan, the tax bill will go up an average of $594 to $9,351 for co-ops and by $970 to $11,348 for condos.
The new assessments are not final. Taxpayers can ask the Department of Finance to make corrections, and can appeal new assessments to the city Tax Commission. The deadline for appeals is March 15 for owners of one- to three-family homes, and March 1 for others.
