MAYOR BLOOMBERG AND FINANCE COMMISSIONER STARK ANNOUNCE 2007 $400 PROPERTY TAX REBATE CHECKS ARE IN THE MAIL
This year’s checks remind owners that they are only to cash the check if their home is their primary residence. If not, they are instructed to return the check, which will also help the Department of Finance to keep its records updated.
"We can't verify if you live there or not, so we'll just assume you do. But please be honest and mail it back if you don't because our system is screwed up." Ah, it's great when the city admits its own incompetence.
