NOTE 1-SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES:
Dreyfus New York Municipal Cash Management (the "Fund") is registered under the Investment Company Act
of 1940 ("Act") as a non-diversified open-end management investment company. The Fund's investment

Manager is a direct subsidiary of Mellon Bank, N.A.

services offered to and the expenses borne by each Class and certain voting rights.
