In May 2018, New York City Council Speaker Corey Johnson and Mayor Bill de Blasio established an advisory commission to develop recommendations to reform the City’s property tax system. The goal: to make it fairer, simpler and more transparent, while ensuring that there’s no reduction in revenue used to fund essential city services.
As part of this process, the Commission will be holding a series of public hearings in the fall and spring to hear from all those who pay property taxes directly or indirectly. The second of these public meetings will take place next month in Queens, and we invite anyone who is interested in improving the property tax system to attend.

To ensure that the Commission hears from all those interested, speakers should plan to speak for no more than three minutes.

Elected officials will be given the opportunity to speak first; all other participants will be heard in the order in which they sign up when they arrive at the hearing.
