Charitable Donations to the City and Property Tax Credit

Statement of Mayor Svante Myrick:


The Common Council recently opted the City in to a New York State program permitting the public to make charitable donations to the City and then receive a property tax credit in the amount of 95% of such donations. City taxpayers who are interested in participating in this program are encouraged to consult their tax advisor before participating.


The City Chamberlain’s Office anticipates being able to accept donations and credit claim forms under this program effective June 20, 2018. The Governor’s Office has offered additional information on this State program, available here:
