BILL NUMBER:S4162

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the tax law, in relation to authorizing the county of Tompkins
to continue imposing an additional one percent sales tax

PURPOSE:
To extend for two more years statutory authorization to Tompkins
County to impose an additional one percent sales and compensating use
tax.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Amends Section 1210 of the tax law.

JUSTIFICATION:
Tompkins County has formally requested this authorization to impose
the additional sales tax be extended for two years. The extension is
necessary in order to avoid a $10,050,000 reduction in county
expenditures which would create a major impact on the availability of
services or would impose a 25% increase in County property taxes.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New Bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None to the State.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
Immediately.
