The City of New York has finalized the real estate tax rates for tax year 2021/22, which began July 1, 2021, and will end June 30, 2022.  The rate for Class 2 residential properties is down, while the rate for Class 4 nonresidential properties (i.e., commercial) is up.

The following is a comparison of the annualized tax rates for tax years 2020/21 and 2021/22:
