- Revised IT-2663 Form
Kindly be advised that a revised IT-2663 form has been recently implemented by the NYS Department of Finance. A link to the revised form is provided below; the difference between the old form and the new form can be found on their respective Line 19; the prior form provided for a New York State tax rate of 8.82 percent whereas the revised form sets forth a tax rate of 10.90 percent. The revised form also distinguishes itself from the prior form in that the revised form contains the date “4/21” in the upper right hand corner of the first page.
In addition, you are encouraged to check the NYSDOF website regularly as forms are sometimes revised without prior notice to the title industry. General link is provided below:
