TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the real property tax law, in relation to expanding the definition of "clerical error"
PURPOSE OF THE BILL: The purpose of the bill is to allow a correction of errors form to include an instance where an assessor has failed to utilize the 581-a assessment method.
SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1 of the bill will amend subdivision 2 of section 550 of the real property tax law by adding an additional paragraph that will expand the definition of "clerical error".
Section 2 relates to the effective date.
JUSTIFICATION: This bill will allow an assessor that failed to use the 581-a assessment method to make a correction through the correction of errors law. In 2005, the State Legislature added section 581-a to the real property tax law that allowed for a separate assessment method for property that contains a certain percentage of low income housing. The correction of errors law was never updated to include the instance where an assessor failed to correctly utilize the 581-a assessment method.
PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2012- S.7097 - Referred to Local Government
FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE: None.
This act shall take effect immediately.
