TITLE OF BILL: An act to authorize the city of Troy, county of Rensselaer to forgive certain past due property taxes due from START Children's Center, Inc.

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:

Authorize certain property tax forgiveness.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of any law to the contrary, the assessor of the city of Troy is hereby authorized to forgive past due property taxes from START Children's Center, Inc. for the period of time from May 1, 2012 through June 30, 2012, totaling three thousand six hundred eighty-four dollars and seventy-one cents for the parcel located at 131 Sixth Avenue, Troy, New York, 12180, also known as Lot 90.39 of Block 5 of Section 19.

JUSTIFICATION:

In May 2012 START Children's Center, Inc., purchased the parcel located at 131 Sixth Avenue, Troy, New York, 12180, also known as Lot 90.39 of Block 5 of Section 19 from ARC. Both organizations are tax exempt, 501c(3) organizations. When ARC moved out of the premises, the City of Troy placed the property back on the tax role, pursuant to New York State law. START Children's Center, Inc. filed a tax exemption form with the City of Troy on November 8, 2012. However, START Children's Center, Inc. is still liable for both school and property taxes dating back to the date of purchase. If forced to pay the owed taxes for the property, START Children's Center, Inc. would be severely impacted fiscally and critical services provided to children in Rensselaer County would be endangered.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

New Bill

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

None to the state.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect immediately.
