 BILL NUMBER:  S640

TITLE OF BILL : An act to amend the real property tax law, in relation to subjecting certain state lands in Orange county to real property taxation

PURPOSE OF BILL : This bill would subject certain state lands in Orange County which have been acquired by the Palisades Interstate park to real property taxation.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS : Section 1 amends Real Property Tax Law §§532(e) to subject all lands in Orange County which were acquired for public use by the Palisades Interstate Park to real property taxation.

Section 2 provides for the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION : Lands which have been acquired in Orange County by the Palisades Interstate Park have been added to the real property tax roles in affected municipalities. However, as acquisition of new lands have increased, the new pieces of property added to the Park have not been similarly subject to real property taxation. This bill would therefore add these new properties to the real property tax roles of the corresponding municipality.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY : S.25 of 2000 S.1661 of 2001 S.957 of 2003/2004 S.66 of 2005/2006 S.192 of 2008/2008

EFFECTIVE DATE : in 0 This act shall take effect immediately and shall apply to assessment roles prepared on the basis of taxable status dates occurring on and after the date on which this act shall have become law.
