Exemptions As Of Right In New York City: Why They’re Not Always Straightforward

Real estate tax exemptions for nonprofits – or “exemptions as of right” – are not always straightforward. For example, some not-for-profits lease portions of their property to nontax exempt entities, resulting in partial or total loss of exemption benefits.

We help not-for-profit organizations navigate this process to make certain they receive the appropriate level of tax benefits. Our lawyers understand the intricacies of real estate tax classifications and the detailed criteria for obtaining exemptions.
