Mishandled Paperwork Impacting New York City Nonprofits
A regulation permitting New York City to sell liens on unpaid property taxes and water bills may not sound like an issue for nonprofits, but a conflicting law is complicating matters for 324 of the city’s organizations. In 2011, a regulation was introduced requiring all nonprofit organizations to refile annually for property tax exemptions. Paperwork issues, however, have caused some nonprofits to be added to the New York City of Department’s list of tax lien sales. Fordham Law students are working with nonprofit administrators to identify and remove the impacted nonprofits from the list.
