Memo

 BILL NUMBER:  S5328A

TITLE OF BILL : An act to amend the real property tax law, in relation to temporarily extending the maximum term of installment agreements for payment of delinquent taxes

PURPOSE : This bill would permit local governments to increase the maximum term of installment agreement for payment of delinquent taxes from twenty four months to thirty six months, until December 31, 2011

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS : Section 1 of the bill amends subdivision 3 of section 1184 of the real property tax law as it relates to increasing the installment agreement to thirty six months.

Section 2 relates to effective date.

JUSTIFICATION : As the economic conditions continue to worsen, more and more New Yorkers have been unable to pay their property taxes on time. Local governments are able to negotiate with these citizens and place them on an installment plan, however, by law they are limited to a 24 month time period. This law would permit the local government, at their option, to increase the installment period to 36 months, thereby helping New Yorkers avoid foreclosure.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY :

2009/2010 - New Bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS :

To be determined

EFFECTIVE DATE : This act shall take effect immediately and shall expire and be deemed repeal December 31, 2011.
