The New York State Department of Taxation and Finance (NYSDTF) is the department of the New York state government responsible for taxation and revenue, including handling all tax forms and publications, and dispersing tax revenue to other agencies and counties within New York State. The Department also has a law enforcement division, the New York State Office of Tax Enforcement.

It is headquartered in Building 8/8A at the W. Averell Harriman State Office Building Campus in Albany.

The tax department was formally created on January 1, 1927 but the first signs of the department reared their head in 1859. The original intent was to find a way (mathematical formula) to distribute tax revenue to individual counties in New York State.
