Q: What is NY.GOV ID? Your NY.GOV ID allows you to use online services from various NYS government agencies using a single Username and Password. For example, if you create a NY.GOV ID through the Department of Labor (DOL) and then want to use the Online Tax Center of the Department of Taxation and Finance, you can use the same NY.GOV ID Username and Password for both agencies. If you already have a NY.GOV ID Username and Password before you sign up with the DOL, we will assign that Username and Password to your DOL account.
Q: Why is the Department of Labor doing this? This will allow web users to use the same Username and Password to access online services from multiple NYS government agencies. It will create a better online experience for you and increase your security.
