The landlord was trampled by property taxes when COIVD-19 drained the rent

The landlord was trampled by property taxes when COIVD-19 drained the rent

Tax officials come, even during a pandemic.

July 1 marks the deadline for thousands of beleaguered building owners to pay more than billions of dollars in property taxes to New York City – and nearly half are expected to fail.

About 6 percent of property owners will not be able to pay their tax bills at all, while the other 39 percent will only be able to make partial payments, according to a survey by the trade group Community Improvement Program, or CHIP.

The June survey took the pulse of landlords for 500,000 housing units that were stabilized with rent, but reflected a larger industry, because coronavirus hammered diverse groups of tenants – from residential to commercial, CHIP spokesman Michael Johnson told The Post.

“People who have owned buildings for decades for the first time in their lives will not be able to pay their property taxes,” Johnson said.

The city has estimated around $ 30 billion in property taxes this year – or about a third of its budget. But little consideration has been given to the state of landlords, industry sources say.

The property owner last month requested a freeze on property tax rates; reduction of interest penalties from 18 percent to 3 percent, and for monthly payment plans for their taxes – but their request has not been granted.

In fact, property taxes were raised this year by $ 1.65 billion based on an assessment conducted before the pandemic, The Wall Street Journal reported.

“Financial assistance is very one-sided, all aimed at tenants,” complained Arthur Franciosa, who owns about 30 residential and commercial buildings in the city, mostly in The Bronx.

Many Franciosa retail tenants, including a nail salon, cannot afford to pay rent for months, during which time he has assumed part of the property tax and water and sewerage fees.

He has forgiven the rent in some cases, but now does not have enough to pay his full tax bill, which will start ticking time at an 18 percent penalty fee until he pays the bill or the city starts a lien process against him.

Another owner said he only borrowed $ 40,000 from relatives to pay the property tax bills for three of his family’s commercial buildings.

Two of the main tenants have not been able to pay rent since the pandemic struck in March. But paying a $ 50,000-plus tax bill is a priority because of the heavy 18 percent fine.

“This is a bad situation when you have to borrow money from relatives,” said the owner, who asked not to be named. “We were forced to pay our tenants’ bills and city bills.”
