Following federal and NY state hurricane relief efforts, in the last few days New York City has postponed a host of tax filing and payment deadlines all to October 31 as follows:


For filings and payments due between
August 26 and October 31

General Corporation Tax
Unincorporated Business Tax
Banking Corporation Tax
Real Property Transfer Tax
Utility Tax
Cigarette Tax

For returns due September 20

Commercial Rent Tax
Hotel Occupancy Tax

While the City has waived late filing and late payment penalties, you must still pay interest on underpayments — calculated from the original due date.
