What is the Prevailing Wage Amendment and how does it impact my tax abatement?
The prevailing wage affidavit must be filed for properties that have 30 or more dwelling units and an average assessed unit value of more than $60,000, or that have less than 30 dwelling units and an average assessed unit value of more than $100,000. The prevailing wage affidavit certifies that all building service employees currently employed or to be employed at the property receive the applicable wage for the duration of the property’s tax abatement. Coops and Condos that decide not to file a prevailing wage affidavit for the upcoming tax year then forfeit the tax abatement. Click here to read the full amendment
