J-51 Explanation

The J-51 benefit program of the City of New York is a tax incentive for the renovation of multiple unit residential buildings.   The Department of Housing, Preservation and Development (HPD) administers the program and handles all applications for it.   The Department of Finance applies the HPD approved benefits to real property assessed value and taxes.

The program includes two benefits, both based on the certified cost of building alteration.   (1) The J-51 Exemption reduces the taxable assessed value, which is the basis for calculating Real Estate Taxes.   (2) The J-51 Abatement reduces the actual tax that has been charged against a property.
