Manhattan Parking Tax Exemption
Applies to Leased Cars Starting December 1

Mayor Giuliani and the New York City Council have welcome news for Manhattan residents who garage their leased cars on a monthly basis or longer. A new city law, enacted in August, will extend the Manhattan resident parking tax exemption to leased cars starting December 1, 1996. More than 30,000 Manhattan residents already benefit from an exemption from New York City's 8% tax surcharge on parking services.

Manhattan residents qualify for the extended exemption if:

1. Their primary residence is in Manhattan.
2. They own a car or lease one for a term of one year or more.
3. They register that car at their primary residence.
4. They do not use the car for business purposes.

Applications are available at the Manhattan Parking Violations Help Center, located in the Municipal Building at One Centre Street, First Floor North, or at the Manhattan locations of New York State Department of Motor Vehicles offices:
