The purpose of this policy bulletin is to inform staff that every year, the Human Resources Administration’s (HRA) Management Information Systems (MIS) mails the New York State Nutrition Incentive Program (NYSNIP) Real Property Tax Credit Notice (W-516E) and the Real Property Tax Credit Notice (W-516G) to participants who pay $450 or less per month in rent. (The W-516E is mailed to PA Households and the W-516G is mailed to NPA Food Stamps [FS] participants enrolled in NYSNIP).
In an effort to assist these participants in applying for the real property tax credit, MIS uses information from the Welfare Management System (WMS) to pre-fill the IT-214, which is mailed along with the W-516E and W-516G. For NYSNIP participants, MIS partially pre-fills the IT-214 before mailing it with the W-516G. The W-516G lists the number of each question on the IT-214 that must be completed by the NYSNIP participant.
