BILL NUMBER:S3769

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the tax law, in relation to the imposition of sales and
compensating use tax in Montgomery county

PURPOSE:
To extend, for another two years, the authority of Montgomery County
to impose an additional sales and use tax of one percent.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1210 of the Tax Law is amended to extend, until November 30,
2013, the authority of Montgomery County to impose a sales and use
tax which is one percent additional to the three percent rate that is
generally authorized by state law.

EXISTING LAW:
Section 1210 of the Tax Law currently authorizes Montgomery County to
impose the additional one percent sales and use tax until November
30, 2011.

JUSTIFICATION:
In 2003, the Montgomery County Board of Supervisors requested
legislation to impose an additional 1% sales tax in order to help
address its financial needs and diversify its revenue sources. This
authority was initially granted for two years, and was renewed in
2005, 2007 and 2009. These sales tax revenues are a necessary part
of the County's financial plan, and this bill would extend, for
another two years, the authority of Montgomery County to impose this
additional sales tax.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None to the State.

LOCAL FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
This bill will continue the current level
of local sales tax revenue received by Montgomery County.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
Immediate.
