Commercial building owners can register with the Department of Finance and learn how to pay any required property taxes.

When you become a building owner, property documents are recorded with the Department of Finance (by you or a title company at a Finance Business Center) and maintained online using the Automated City Register Information System (ACRIS). This is a digital storage system for personal and real property-related documents in Manhattan, the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Queens (It is not available for Staten Island).
