Facade Violation Payments
As of Monday, July 12, 2021, facade violation payments for Cycles 6 and later must be submitted in DOB NOW: Safety. Follow the above steps to search for the violation and then take the below steps to proceed or check out the DOB notice here:

  • Go to the DOB NOW website and log into your account
  • Select the violation class (e.g. FISPNRF) for which you want to submit payment. If there are multiple active violations under the same violation class for a given base control number then all
    violations for that class must be paid for as one application. The last five digits of a control number are referred to as the base control number.
  • Save the application to proceed. The respondent information on the request is populated from the information found in the eFiling account that was used to log into DOB NOW.
    Complete the Owner Information and Statements & Signature sections and Save the application
  • The last step is to select Proceed to Pay to enter the payment in the CityPay portal.

Payments made in DOB NOW: Safety by credit card will be processed immediately and the violation(s) status will change to dismissed in the Buildings Information System (BIS). Payments made by eCheck will take up to 10 days to be processed. An email notification will be sent when the payment has processed and the violation has been dismissed.

Once the outstanding violations have been paid, please provide a copy of the receipt to your QEWI which will be included in your FISP report filing submission.
