Our department administers more than 40 state and local taxes and fees, including more than $14 billion in local sales tax and $8 billion in local income tax. In regard to real property taxes, the department oversees the administration of more than $50 billion annually and works directly with nearly 1,000 local governments.

A key department focus is the balance of efforts to promote voluntary compliance - the cornerstone of New York State's system of taxation - with the duty to enforce New York's tax laws. More than 96 percent of the taxes collected are remitted voluntarily by taxpayers. The remaining 4 percent is a result of the department's enforcement programs - audit, collections, and criminal investigations.
