New York State is committed to assuring equal opportunity for persons with disabilities. It's the state's policy to provide reasonable accommodation in all its activities, programs, and services. This policy is based on the federal Americans with Disabilities Act, Title II, and the New York State Human Rights Law.

Reasonable accommodations apply to:

  • physical accessibility at government facilities, programs and events;
  • policy changes necessary to ensure that all people with disabilities can take part in, and benefit from, all state-owned or operated programs and services; 
  • the provision of necessary auxiliary aids and services to ensure effective communication with persons with disabilities.

To request a reasonable accommodation, contact our Designee for Reasonable Accommodation. Note: Our designee cannot assist with tax inquiries. For assistance with tax inquiries, see Contact us.
