The 421a tax exemption program was started in 1971 to encourage the development of underutilized or vacant property by dramatically reducing property taxes for a set amount of time. Developers who qualified could benefit from exemptions that usually last between 10 and 25 years, and the tax breaks were passed on to buyers of units within the building.

The 421a program came to an end in some parts of the city at the beginning of January 2016, but several condos that secured an exemption before that are starting to near completion. While some of these benefits are set to last into the 2040s, it is important to note that these reduced taxes will not last forever, as some buyers are coming to find in the form of sticker shock.
