yeah OP's math is definitely off. by my guess the tax increase could justify anywhere between 10-15% increase in rent.

the next biggest component is probably the increase interest rates, as commercial loans are often variable rate. interest rates have doubled

Next is by far labor.

Look at condo budgets and you’d see it’s always about 50% labor directly (doorman, porter) and indirectly (plumbers, hvac, carpet cleaners etc). That’s outpaced inflation by quite a bit due to minimum wage increases, unionization in NY for doormen and a shortage of tradespeople.
