The New York State Department of Taxation and Finance ("DTF") files warrants in county clerks' offices throughout the state pursuant to Chapter 60, Article 8, Section 171-i of the Tax Law to enforce collection of child support and/or combined spousal and child support arrears. Pursuant to Chapter 60, Article1, Section 6 of the Tax Law, DTF sends the Department of State a notice of the fact that such warrants have been filed. The Department of State now maintains an electronic database of the warrant-related notices presented by DTF. These notices may be searched by debtor name, by debtor city, by county of warrant filing, or by any combination of the foregoing.

Please note that DTF first files a warrant in a county clerk's office, and then files a notice of such filing in this office. As a result, in most cases there will necessarily be some gap between the time of filing of the actual warrant in the county clerk's office and the time of filing of the notice of such filing in this office. Therefore, searchers are encouraged to search in the offices of the appropriate county clerk(s) to determine the most recent status of filing(s) against a given debtor.

Inquiries regarding warrants in general should be directed to the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance.
