BILL NUMBER:S7297

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to authorize the town of New Windsor, in the county of Orange, to grant
a retroactive real property tax assessment reduction for a certain
parcel destroyed by Hurricane Irene

PURPOSE:
The purpose of this legislation is to authorize the town of New
Windsor to grant a retroactive real property tax assessment reduction
for a certain parcel destroyed by Hurricane Irene.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1: Authorizes the town of New Windsor's town board to grant a
real property tax assessment reduction for the 2011 tax year for a
certain piece of property which was destroyed by Hurricane Irene on
August 28, 2011, was condemned on August 29, 2011, and has been
ordered to be demolished.
Section 2: Authorizes the town board to provide for a refund of those
taxes paid and cancel any taxes, fines, penalties, interest or tax
liens which accrued on any amount in excess of the taxes owed due to
the reduced assessment.
Section 3: This act shall take effect immediately.

JUSTIFICATION:
The home that this bill concerns was condemned by a town of New
Windsor Fire Inspector on August 29, 2011 due to damage caused by
Hurricane Irene. Due to the severity of the damage, the town has
determined that the house is uninhabitable and the lot is not
buildable due to a collapse of the land. In addition, the home has
been ordered demolished on May 3, 2012 due to the damage that was
caused during 2011.
On April 20th, 2012, the town of New Windsor Assessor reduced the 2012
assessment for the property. This legislation would authorize the
town of New Windsor to grant the same reduction retroactively for the
2011 tax year.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New Bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

LOCAL FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
Immediately.
