BILL NUMBER:S6945

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the tax law, in relation to extending provisions of law relating
to the credit for the rehabilitation of historic properties and
historic
homes

PURPOSE:
This bill extends the availability of the New York State
Rehabilitation Tax Credit programs for commercial and owner-occupied
properties for five years.
The availability of the current programs availability through the
taxable year ending before January first, two thousand fifteen is
changed to the taxable year ending before January first, two thousand
twenty.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1 amends section 606 of the tax law, as amended by Chapter 472
of the laws of 2010, to extend program availability through the
taxable year ending before January first, two thousand twenty.

EFFECT OF PRESENT LAW WHICH THIS BILL WOULD ALTER:
This bill would extend the availability of New York state tax credit
programs for historic commercial properties and historic homes
through the taxable year ending before January first, two thousand
twenty.

JUSTIFICATION:
The expanded New York State rehabilitation tax credit programs were
implemented in two thousand and ten and data shows these programs
have catalyzed a number of building rehabilitation and community
revitalization projects throughout the state. Stronger program
implementation and success was hurt by the imposition of New York
State's tax credit deferral program in two thousand and ten, limiting
the ability of property owners and developers to attract investments
to rehabilitation projects.

Extending program availability five years through two thousand and
nineteen will provide this program with a chance to be made whole and
work as intended. Program extension will assure property owners,
developers and investors alike of program availability, thus allowing
plans for continued reinvestment in the urban cores, downtowns, and
main streets of communities across New York State.

As of December two thousand eleven, this program has spurred projects
in at least 48 municipalities across thirty two counties. Extending
program availability will assure that this state tax credit program
continues to attract significant new private investment to historic
properties, return federal dollars to New York State, and incentivize
reinvestment in existing municipal infrastructure.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
This is a new bill.


FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
There are no fiscal implications for fiscal years two thousand twelve
through two thousand fourteen.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.

  and historic homes

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Subparagraph (A) of  paragraph  1  of  subsection  (oo)  of
section  606  of  the  tax law, as amended by chapter 472 of the laws of
2010, is amended to read as follow:
  (A) For taxable years beginning on or after January first,  two  thou-
sand  ten  and  before  January  first, two thousand [fifteen] TWENTY, a
taxpayer shall be allowed a credit as hereinafter provided, against  the
tax  imposed  by this article, in an amount equal to one hundred percent
of the amount of credit allowed the taxpayer with respect to a certified
historic structure under subsection (a) (2) of section 47 of the federal
internal revenue code with respect to  a  certified  historic  structure
located within the state. Provided, however, the credit shall not exceed
five  million  dollars.  For taxable years beginning on or after January
first, two thousand [fifteen] TWENTY, a  taxpayer  shall  be  allowed  a
credit as hereinafter provided, against the tax imposed by this article,
in an amount equal to thirty percent of the amount of credit allowed the
taxpayer with respect to a certified historic structure under subsection
(a)(2)  of  section 47 of the federal internal revenue code with respect
to a certified historic structure located within  the  state;  provided,
however, the credit shall not exceed one hundred thousand dollars.
  S  2. Paragraph 2 of subsection (pp) of section 606 of the tax law, as
added by chapter 547 of the laws of 2006, subparagraphs (A) and  (B)  as
amended  by  chapter  472  of  the  laws  of 2010, is amended to read as

first, two thousand ten and before January first, two thousand [fifteen]
TWENTY  and  twenty-five thousand dollars for taxable years beginning on
or after January first, two thousand [fifteen] TWENTY. In the case of  a
husband and wife, the amount of the credit shall be divided between them
equally  or  in  such other manner as they may both elect. If a taxpayer
incurs qualified rehabilitation expenditures in relation  to  more  than
one residence in the same year, the total amount of credit allowed under
paragraph  one  of  this  subsection for all such expenditures shall not
exceed fifty thousand dollars for taxable years beginning  on  or  after

[fifteen] TWENTY and twenty-five  thousand  dollars  for  taxable  years

shall be treated as an overpayment of tax to be credited or refunded  in
accordance with the provisions of section six hundred eighty-six of this
article,  provided,  however, that no interest shall be paid thereon. If
the taxpayer's New York adjusted gross  income  for  such  year  exceeds
sixty  thousand  dollars,  the excess credit that may be carried over to
the following year or years and may be deducted from the taxpayer's  tax
for  such year or years. For taxable years beginning on or after January
first, two thousand [fifteen] TWENTY, if the amount of credit  allowable
under this subsection shall exceed the taxpayer's tax for such year, the
excess  may  be  carried  over to the following year or years and may be
deducted from the taxpayer's tax for such year or years.
  S 3. Subparagraph (A) of paragraph 1 of subdivision 40 of section  210
of  the  tax  law,  as  amended  by  chapter 472 of the laws of 2010, is

sand  ten  and  before  January  first, two thousand [fifteen] TWENTY, a
taxpayer shall be allowed a credit as hereinafter provided, against  the
tax  imposed  by this article, in an amount equal to one hundred percent
of the amount of credit allowed the taxpayer with respect to a certified
historic structure under subsection (a) (2) of section 47 of the federal
internal revenue code with respect to  a  certified  historic  structure
located within the state. Provided, however, the credit shall not exceed
five  million  dollars.  For taxable years beginning on or after January
first, two thousand [fifteen] TWENTY, a  taxpayer  shall  be  allowed  a
credit as hereinafter provided, against the tax imposed by this article,
in an amount equal to thirty percent of the amount of credit allowed the
taxpayer with respect to a certified historic structure under subsection
(a)(2)  of  section 47 of the federal internal revenue code with respect
to a certified historic structure located within  the  state.  Provided,
however, the credit shall not exceed one hundred thousand dollars.

of  the tax law, as added by chapter 472 of the laws of 2010, is amended

sand  ten  and  before  January  first, two thousand [fifteen] TWENTY, a
taxpayer shall be allowed a credit as hereinafter provided, against  the
tax  imposed  by this article, in an amount equal to one hundred percent
