Coop Tax abatement to be eliminatedJan 15, 2021

I need a concrete answer if anyone really knows this but our coop is saying the coop/condo tax abatement will NOT be renewed in July 2021 because of lack of support in Albany. Has anyone else heard this or who can we verify it with?

Have you asked whoever told you the abatement was being eliminated where they got their inside information from? If you find out, please share it with the rest of us.

In the meantime, try searching on "Is the NYC co-op tax abatement being eliminated in 2021?". That way you'll have your pick of concrete answers and can choose whichever is most suitable for your purposes.

the source - DM Jan 16, 2021

It is from the coop's financial advisors who have "contacts in Albany" - that is the best I can find out. I can't imagine it is fully accurate as there would, no doubt, be an uproar. I have tried Google etc.
Has anyone heard hints of this? It may be that it is partially true but I cannot imagine they will not renew the abatement. Help.
Our coop raised the maintenance almost 7% in case it is true.

Co-op tax abatement - Steven424 Jan 16, 2021

DM -There are many different tax abatement programs that are loosely called "Real Estate Tax Abatement'

There's the actual individual tax abatement which is distributed each year to co-op owners in the form of a maintenance credit. This is usually offset by the board approving an annual assessment that is approximately the amount of the abatement credit. This is the traditional Real Estate Tax Abatement. Another abatement intended for seniors is STAR.

There are other tax abatement programs intended for developers and co-op corporations. These include the 421-a tax exemption and the J-51 abatement program.

The reason why these latter programs may be disappearing is the need for them no longer exists. One program encouraged new development in underprivileged areas. Another was to prod landlords into upgrading core building services and structures.

Please ask your financial-advisor-with-benefits exactly which tax abatement is not being renewed in 2021. As you noted, there would be a huge uproar if the seminal Real Estate Tax Abatement were actually allowed to die.

Please let us know what you find out. Thanks!

No answer yet Steve - Has anyone else heard this? - DM Jan 17, 2021

Thanks for the info but my question was very specific. It concerns only the cooperative/condo annual abatement.

Coop Tax abatement to be eliminated - peoples choice #1 Jan 17, 2021

Financial adviser heard it from his contacts in Albany. Sounds like the horse told me to bet on #7 in 3rd race. All kidding aside, I just filled out my abatement for the next 2 years. I would call 311 they will put you in contact with people who handle this question. You can also check the internet. It sounds like something is fishy, the reason I say this is your managing agent distributes the money to all share holders who has claimed the abatements. Best of Luck

Abatement is not the same as Rebate - MissP Jan 17, 2021

Real estate tax rebates for coops are not abatements, which are limited in time and phase out. It sounds more likely that abatement programs will end for new developments.

Hi DP,
I requested a copy of a breakdown list from the D.O.F. via email. It shows the exemptions I will be receiving and the co-op abatement. Hope this eases your concerns
