BILL NUMBER:S5547

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the tax law, in relation to extending the authorization of the city of Oswego to impose an additional rate of sales and compensating use taxes

PURPOSE: To authorize the City of Oswego to impose an additional rate of sales and compensating use taxes for the period beginning September 1, 2004 and ending November 30, 2013.

SUMMARY: Amends the tax law to authorize and empower the City of Oswego to adopt and amend local laws, ordinances, or resolutions to continue to impose a one percent additional tax rate during the period of September 1, 2004 and ending November 30, 2013.

JUSTIFICATION: On May 9, 2011 the Oswego Common Council unanimously passed Resolution No. 154 requesting their New York State Assembly and Senate representatives to pass a bill to authorize the City to continue the imposition of the additional 1% sales and use tax.

According to the City of Oswego, the increased sales tax has allowed the City of Oswego to maintain property tax rates and meet criteria for Aid and Incentives to Municipalities for additional revenue sharing. Annually, the increased sales tax revenue generates approximately $1.5 million in revenue. If the additional one percent is not extended for The City of Oswego, they estimate that this would cause a 21.3 percent increase in property taxes. Further, opportunities for additional revenue sharing through AIM would also be lost.

HISTORY: S.4247 of 2009 - Chaptered. S.5054 of 2007 - Chaptered. S.2534 of 2005 - Chaptered.

FISCAL IMPACT: None to the state.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
