TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the tax law, in relation to extending the authorization of the county of Schuyler to impose an additional one percent of sales and compensating use taxes
PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: To authorize the Schuyler County Legislature to extend their additional 1% sales tax for a 2 year period.
SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: The bill amends section 1210 of the tax law to authorize Schuyler County to impose an additional 1% sales tax from the period December 1, 2011 to November 30, 2013.
JUSTIFICATION: The Schuyler County Legislature has passed a resolution requesting that the New York State Legislature introduce and pass a bill to authorize the county to extend their existing additional 1% sales and use tax for the period December 1, 2011 through November 30, 2013. The County has determined that the continuation of the additional 1% increase in the sales tax is the preferred method of raising revenue to help offset the impact of the real property tax burden upon residents. Continuation of this tax generates some $200,000 in additional revenue which is passed on to towns and villages within the county to meet their obligations to residents.
PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2009: S 3224, A.6789
FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.
EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately.
