The Department of Housing Preservation and Development, released for comments a proposed rule change to the current 421-a process. Real Property Tax Law §421-a provides real property tax exemptions for eligible, new multiple dwellings. HPD determines eligibility for §421-a real property tax exemptions. HPD is proposing amendments to Chapter 6 of Title 28 of the Rules of the City of New York (the “421-a Rules”) to clarify a grandfathering provision that was added to the rules after major programmatic changes were enacted by State and local legislatures between December 2006 and February 2008.
