2016 Enhanced Form NYC-208, Claim for New York City Enhanced Real Property Tax Credit

Enhanced paper filing with a fill-in form

Electronic filing is the fastest, safest way to file—but if you must file a paper claim for the New York City enhanced real property tax credit, use our enhanced fill-in Form NYC-208 with 2D barcodes.

Benefits include:

  • no more handwriting—type your entries directly into our form
  • automatic calculation of your refund or tax due amount—the form does the math
  • a unique 2D barcode printed on every page that securely links your form information to your account
  • fewer errors and faster processing of your form due to the automatic entry of your information (as scanners read the 2D barcode)

Note: If you are using Internet Explorer 11, we recommend you save the PDF document to your computer and fill out this saved version, instead of accessing the form directly through your Web browser.

All taxpayers should save a copy of this form to their computer after printing.
