By Council Members Matteo, Yeger and Kallos

 

A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to the department of finance providing a receipt of payment

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1. Section 11-129 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new subdivision d to read as follows:

d. The department shall establish and maintain a system to contact owners by electronic-mail and provide access electronically to a receipt for, and information on, each payment made for charges on a statement of account. The department shall notify owners of the availability of such system on the statement of account and shall solicit the submission of an email address at the time of payment. Such receipt shall include the property address, borough, block and lot number, the amount paid, and the date the payment was received, and may include additional information as the commissioner of finance deems appropriate. Such system shall also provide information on how the amount paid was applied toward the tax, charge or assessment on the statement of account. The city shall not be liable for any damages as a result of failure to provide access to a receipt, nor shall any cause of action arise from such failure.

§ 2.  This local law takes effect on July 1, 2021.
