Mission

It is the mission of the New York State Tax Appeals Tribunal/Division of Tax Appeals “to provide the public with a clear, uniform, rapid, inexpensive and just system of resolving controversies with the Division of Taxation of the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance.” It is the agency’s goal “to afford the public both due process of law and the legal tools necessary to facilitate the rapid resolution of controversies while at the same time avoiding undue formality and complexity.”

Organization and Staffing

The Division of Tax Appeals is headed by the Tax Appeals Tribunal, which comprises three commissioners appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the Senate. Under the direction of the Tax Tribunal, dispute adjudication is provided through small claims hearings, formal hearings and the Tribunal appeals process.

Budget Highlights

The FY 2019 Executive Budget recommends a $3.0 million General Fund appropriation and a workforce of 27 FTEs for the Division of Tax Appeals, both unchanged from FY 2018.

Program Highlights

The Division of Tax Appeals provides taxpayers with a system of due process for resolving disputes with the Department of Taxation and Finance. The separation of tax administration from tax adjudication promotes the impartial and timely hearing of taxpayer disputes.
