BILL NUMBER:S817 REVISED 01/13/2011

TITLE OF BILL:

An act
to amend the tax law, in relation to establishing a
residential fuel oil storage tank credit

PURPOSE:

Establishes a tax credit for the removal or permanent enclosure of a
residential fuel oil storage tank credit.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 606 of the tax law is amended by adding a new subsection (P-1).

JUSTIFICATION:

This legislation would reinstate a residential fuel oil storage tank
credit that was originally established by Section 3 of Part C of
Chapter 85 of the Laws of 2002. It would provide taxpayers with a tax
credit equal to the costs of removal or permanent closure of an
existing unprotected below-ground or aboveground residential fuel oil
storage tank used to provide heating fuel for single to four family
residences located in new York not to exceed five hundred dollars.
The credit would be allowed once per residence and may be carried
forward to the following year or years and may be deducted from the
taxpayer's tax for such year or years.

The original residential fuel oil storage tank credit was a successful
mechanism to get New Yorkers to replace and close underground oil
tanks. Undoubtedly. individuals who did not act to remove these tanks
before the program's expiration in 2003 are experiencing further
corrosion as their tanks continue to age. This legislation would give
New Yorkers another opportunity to take advantage of this incentive
to protect their homes and the environment from the risk of
contamination by an existing unprotected or neglected below ground or
above ground residential fuel oil storage tank

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

2009-10 S.236/A.32; 2007-08, S.146/A.184; 2005-06, S.3144-A/A.4609A.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect on the first of January next succeeding the
date on which it shall have become law and shall apply to taxable
years beginning after such date.
