The Current Tax Map search utility on the Department of Finance website makes finding each New York City property's block and lot information simple, with the ability to search by various criteria such as address, landmark, zip code or condominium number. The Your Property Information search contains property tax information for each property within the city. Tax bills state the taxes for the year and the calculation used to determine them, and the Final Assessment Rolls state the valuation of a property for the purposes of calculating taxes.

Property taxes in New York City are charged on a quarterly or semi-annual basis, but the city offers a discount of between 0.125 percent and 0.5 percent to property owners who pay their taxes earlier in the city fiscal year, according to the Department of Finance. The biggest discounts are on taxes paid by July 1, the start date of the city fiscal year. Property owners who are charged quarterly have a grace period of 15 days after the payment due date to pay their taxes.
