Dear business and property owners,

We shared this news early on in the pandemic, but we would like to remind merchants and landlords that you may be eligible to request a refund of your Use & Occupancy taxes from those months when you were forced to close during the pandemic. This weekend, the City released some new guidance on a step that was resulting in some applicants being denied for their refunds. See the following two links if you are interested in pursuing this refund:
