BILL NUMBER:S6307

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the real property tax law, in relation to providing for state
advisory appraisal services to villages

PURPOSE OF BILL:
To include villages as localities eligible to receive
advisory appraisals for highly complex properties and public
utilities, currently provided by the Commissioner of the New York
State Department of Taxation and Finance to cities, towns and villages.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
Section 1 amends section 1544 of the
Real Property Tax law, subdivision 1 to include villages in the list
of localities able to receive advisory appraisals for highly complex
properties and public utilities, currently provided by the
Commissioner of the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance.

Section 2 amends section 1546 of the real property tax law to include
the assessor of villages skill level as a factor for the Commissioner
of the Department of Taxation and Finance to determine which
properties are highly complex properties eligible to receive an
advisory appraisal.

Section 3 sets the enacting date.

JUSTIFICATION:
Village assessors have been denied the opportunity to
review advisory appraisals that are readily available for every other
form of local government.

This bill would remedy the statutory oversight for villages and afford
them the same opportunity to request and review advisory appraisals
for highly complex properties of which they must assess and currently
made available to assessors from counties, towns and cities.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
This is a new bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
No new costs to the state.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
