BILL NUMBER:S4123

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the tax law, in relation to extending the authorization of the county of Tompkins to impose an additional one percent of sales and compensating use taxes

PURPOSE: To extend for two more years statutory authorization to Tompkins County to impose an additional one percent sales and compensating use tax.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Amends section 1210 of the tax law.

JUSTIFICATION: Tompkins County has formally requested this authorization to impose the additional sales tax be extended for two years. The extension is necessary in order to avoid $10,050,000 reduction in county expenditures which would create a major impact on the availability of services or would impose a 25% increase in County property taxes.

EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately
