About Real Property Income and Expense Statements in NYC

The City of New York uses RPIE statements to assess the value of certain types of income-producing properties, including:

  • Commercial property
  • Residential property with more than three units
  • Hotels
  • Motels
  • Parking garages/lots

As the name implies, the statement provides information on income and expenses associated with owning and operating a property, such as:

  • Rent
  • Utility costs
  • Maintenance and repair expenses
  • Property taxes
  • Insurance costs

An RPIE statement also provides information on the number of units in the building, the occupancy rate, and the total rentable square footage. 

The city uses the statement to calculate the property’s assessed value and the property tax the owner must pay. Property values are calculated based on a variety of factors, including:

  • The rental income generated by the property
  • The expenses associated with owning and operating the property
  • The market value of the property

In addition to assessing property values for tax purposes, the city uses RPIE statements to track trends in the real estate market. The city collects data on the income and expenses associated with properties to identify market trends in each borough and adjust property tax rates accordingly.

How Do Real Property Incomes and Expense Statements Help Property Owners?

The RPIE statement is a valuable tool for property owners. By analyzing the income and expenses associated with their property, owners can identify areas where they can reduce costs and increase revenue. For example, if the statement shows utility costs are high, the owner can explore ways to reduce energy usage and lower those costs.

In any event, property owners must file RPIE statements annually by May 1st. Failure to file can result in penalties and fines, and the city may estimate the property’s assessed value based on pre-existing data, which could result in higher property tax bills.
