New York City has delayed the tax lien sale for homeowners until September 24. If you owe property taxes or water bills and have a lien on your home you have until September 25 to either pay the tax lien or make a payment agreement. If you are not sure if your home is on the list click the link below to find out.
After DeBlasio announced the extension, Governor Cuomo announced that he was extending the tax lien sale to October 4, 2020. This is a tit for tat that DeBlasio and Cuomo have been having for the past few years. We would suggest everyone use the September 24, 2020 date, just in case.
Housing advocates have been asking DeBlasio to cancel the tax lien sales altogether or at the very least remove the nearly 5,000 small homes that have 3 units or less, from the list. DeBlasio has not budged on cancelling the lien sales for any of the homeowners who find themselves in financial trouble.
Here is the link to the NYC Finance Department where you can pay your bill or make payment arrangements. If you are not sure whether or not your home is on the list, there are links at the bottom of the page on the city website that will take you to the full list of homes that are on the lien sale list, in every borough.
