BILL NUMBER:S2320

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the real property tax law, in relation
to exemption from taxation of alterations and improvements to multiple
dwellings to eliminate fire and health hazards and a partial abatement
of real property taxes for condominiums and cooperatives, in a city
having a population of one million or more; to amend the
administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to certain
tax credits; to amend the real property tax law, in relation to
interim multiple dwellings in a city with a population of one million
or more; to amend the multiple dwelling law, in relation to interim
multiple dwellings in a city with a population of one million or more;
and providing for the repeal of certain provisions of the multiple
dwelling law upon expiration thereof

PURPOSE: The purpose of this legislation is to continue to provide an
incentive to owners to rehabilitate and upgrade existing multiple
dwellings. Additionally, this legislation would make various changes
to the Loft Law in order to provide clarifying language to allow for
easier interpretation and to adjust rental increases for compliance
with fire and safety standards. This legislation would also, amend the
Real Property Tax Law to incentivize the construction of new housing.
Additionally, the bill would amend a tax abatement for cooperatives
and condominiums to enhance the abatement for primary residents.
Finally, the bill would create an S-corp tax credit.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

This bill would:

* Extend from June 1, 2011, until January 1, 2015, the deadline for
local legislative action providing J-51 tax incentives for the
rehabilitation and upgrading of multiple dwellings, and extend the
completion date from December 31, 2011, to June 30, 2015;

* Define "substantial governmental assistance," and create an
eligibility criteria for alterations/improvements to cooperative and
condominium apartments with an assessed value of $30K to $40K that
requires such units to receive substantial governmental assistance;

* Provide that J-51 benefits would only be available for conversions
from commercial to residential properties receiving substantial
governmental assistance;

* Require that an applicant pay two times the actual costs for any
additional inspections if such applicant has not completed work
required on the date of the initial inspection;

* Provide in statute that the revocation of J-51 benefits does not

compliance with the requirements of RPTL § 489 or of any local law or
ordinance providing for these benefits;

* Authorize the locality to require the electronic filing of
applications;


* Reduce the minimum space requirement needed to qualify as a loft
apartment from 550 square feet to 400 square feet;

hazardous activities to exclude those units that had hazardous
activities on June 21, 2010, that continue until the date of
submission for coverage under the Loft Law;

* Reduce the percent of rent increases allowed for coming into various
stages of compliance for fire and safety standards;

* Allow the Loft Board to include units under the loft law despite any
incompatible uses in the building;

* Incentivize the construction of affordable and market rate units in
areas of Manhattan through the 421-a benefit program;

* Eliminate language added in Chapter 97 of the Laws of 2011 intended
to allow extended periods of construction for certain projects
participating in the 421-a program;

* Require the Department of Housing Preservation and Development to
make information relating the J-51 program available on its website,
to provide a contact phone number for tenants to determine benefits
available through the J-51 program, and to convene a task force that
shall examine and report on methods to improve the transparency of
J-51;

* Amend the term "applicant" to permit the Commissioner of Finance to,
by rule, designate the owner of a dwelling unit as an applicant;

* Provide that in the fiscal year commencing in calendar years two
thousand twelve, two thousand thirteen or two thousand fourteen, no
more than a maximum of three dwelling units owned by any unit owner or
tenant stock-holder in a single building, one of which must be the
primary residence of such owner or tenant-stockholder, shall be
eligible to receive a partial abatement pursuant to paragraphs d-1
through d-4 of the section;

* Modify and extend the program for three additional years (for fiscal
years commencing in 2012, 2013 and 2014). Paragraphs d-1 through d-4
provide the benefit schedule for dwelling units that serve as the
primary residence of their unit owner and up to two additional units
located within the same property that are also owned by such owner.

* The benefits are as follows:

o In fiscal years commencing in 2012, 2013 and 2014, dwelling units in
property whose average unit assessed value is less than or equal to
$50,000 shall receive a partial abatement of 25%, 26.5% and 28.1%
respectively.

o In fiscal years commencing in 2012, 2013 and 2014, dwelling units in
property whose average unit assessed value is more than $50,000, but
less than or equal to $55,000, shall receive a partial abatement of
22.5%, 23.8% and 25.2% respectively.


o In fiscal years commencing in 2012, 2013 and 2014, dwelling units in

owner of such units. The benefits are as follows:

property whose average unit assessed value is less than or equal to
$15,000 shall receive a partial abatement of 12.5%, 6.25% and no
abatement respectively.

o In fiscal years commencing in 2012, 2013 and 2014, dwelling units in

respectively.

* Adjust how the condominium and cooperative abatement is calculated;

* Amend the application process for the condominium and cooperative
abatement program;

* Provide for S-Corporation tax credits against the NYC local PIT for
city residents for taxable years beginning on or after January 1, 2014
and before July 1, 2015. Benefits would be provided to S-Corporations
with city taxable incomes of less than one hundred thousand dollars;

* Authorize the Commissioner to promulgate rules to include denial,
termination or revocation of any abatement if the dwelling unit real
property taxes, water and sewer charges, payments in lieu of taxes or
other municipal charges are due and owing unless they are currently
being paid in timely installments pursuant to a written agreement with
New York City; and

* Authorize the Commissioner of Finance to prepare and submit amended
tax bills to taxpayers to reflect any adjustments necessary to apply
the abatement.

JUSTIFICATION: The J-51 benefit program provides incentives for
landlords to engage in rehabilitation projects to make improvements.
Benefits for the program vary depending on the location of the
building and the type of improvements to be made. This legislation
would make several changes to the program such as provide that J-51
benefits would only be available for conversions from nonresidential
to residential properties receiving substantial governmental
assistance. This would ensure that some of the housing contained in
these projects remains affordable to low and moderate income families.
Also, the bill would create a penalty that encourages owners to
complete their J-51 improvements in a timely and correct manner.


This amendment to the Loft Law is necessary to clarify ambiguities in
the law to more accurately represent the intent and to update the
language to reflect the current rental market. Under current law,
landlords are allowed to raise rents in excess of twenty percent as
incentives to convert the units and bring them into compliance with
current fire and safety standards. These rent increases were
appropriate when the original Loft Law of 1982 was first passed when
loft residents were paying well under market rate. Today, these rent
increases are overly burdensome, unaffordable and threaten to displace
tenants. Furthermore, the bill would bring a greater number of units
that are not in compliance with current fire and safety standards and
are occupied for residential purposes into compliance with the
existing law.

Incentivizing residential construction projects will have the
immediate beneficial effect of creating new housing stock, and
stimulating the economy through job creation and development. By
extending the 421-a program to projects in the FAR 15 zones, this
legislation would stimulate the creation of much needed new affordable
and market rate housing. In order to participate in the program
developers would need to provide on-site affordable housing or provide
funding to New York City's Department of Housing Preservation and
Development for the construction of affordable housing. The bill also
makes technical changes to remove unnecessary language which was added
as the result of last year's amendments to the 421-a real property tax
exemption program.

Since 1996, the City of New York has offered, with New York State
authorization, a partial property tax abatement program for co-op and
condo owners. The program was established to address inequities in the
real property tax system in New York City that burden owners of co-op
and condominium units with larger tax bills than the owners of
comparably valued one-, two and three-family homes. The original
intent of the program was to ensure equity to those co-op and condo
owners who primarily reside in New York City. However, a significant
number of current beneficiaries are not owner-occupants but investors
who were not the intended recipients. This bill extends the program
for three additional years, provides additional benefit by enriching
the abatement for lower-valued properties, and restores the original
intent of the program by phasing out the benefit for non-primary
residents.

  5. Notwithstanding the provisions of paragraphs (i), (iii) and (iv) of
subdivision  two of this section, but subject to paragraphs (i) and (ii)
of subdivision one of this section and paragraph (ii) of subdivision two
of this section, the term  "interim  multiple  dwelling"  shall  include
buildings,  structures or portions thereof that are located in a city of
more than one  million  persons  which  were  occupied  for  residential
purposes  as  the residence or home of any three or more families living
independently from one another for a period of twelve consecutive months
during the period commencing January  first,  two  thousand  eight,  and
ending December thirty-first, two thousand nine, provided that the unit:
is  not  located  in  a basement or cellar and has at least one entrance
that does not require passage through another residential unit to obtain
access to the unit, has at least one window opening onto a street  or  a
lawful  yard or court as defined in the zoning resolution for such muni-
cipality, and is at least [five hundred fifty] FOUR HUNDRED square  feet

sion shall not include (i) any building in an industrial  business  zone
established  pursuant to chapter six-D of title twenty-two of the admin-
istrative code of the city of New York except that  a  building  in  the

a building located in that portion of the Long  Island  city  industrial
business  zone  that has frontage on either side of forty-seventh avenue
or is located north of forty-seventh avenue and south of Skillman avenue
or in that portion of the Long Island city industrial business zone that
is located north of forty-fourth drive, south of Queens plaza north, and

ple dwelling," or (ii) units in any building, OTHER THAN A BUILDING THAT

VISION ONE, TWO, THREE OR FOUR OF THIS SECTION, that, at the  time  this
subdivision  shall  take  effect  AND  CONTINUING  AT  THE  TIME  OF THE
SUBMISSION OF AN APPLICATION FOR COVERAGE BY ANY PARTY, also contains  a

S. 2320                            16

use actively and currently pursued, which use is set forth in use groups
fifteen  through eighteen, as described in the zoning resolution of such
municipality in effect on June twenty-first, two thousand ten, and which
the  loft  board  has  determined  in rules and regulation is inherently
incompatible with residential use in the same  building,  provided  that
THE  LOFT BOARD MAY BY RULE EXEMPT CATEGORIES OF UNITS OR BUILDINGS FROM
SUCH USE INCOMPATIBILITY DETERMINATIONS INCLUDING  BUT  NOT  LIMITED  TO
RESIDENTIALLY  OCCUPIED  UNITS  OR  SUBCATEGORIES  OF  SUCH  UNITS,  AND
PROVIDED, FURTHER THAT if a building does not contain such  active  uses

owner of the building shall eliminate the protections  of  this  section
for any residential occupants in the building already qualified for such
protections.  The  term  "interim  multiple  dwelling,"  as used in this
subdivision shall also include buildings, structures or portions thereof

period commencing January first, two thousand eight, and ending December
thirty-first,  two  thousand  nine and subject to all the conditions and
limitations of this subdivision other than the number of  units  in  the
building.  A  reduction in the number of occupied residential units in a
building after  meeting  the  aforementioned  twelve  consecutive  month
requirement  shall not eliminate the protections of this section for any
remaining residential occupants qualified for such protections.  Non-re-
sidential  space in a building as of the effective date of this subdivi-
sion shall be offered for residential use only after the obtaining of  a
residential certificate of occupancy for such space and such space shall
be  exempt  from this article, even if a portion of such building may be
an interim multiple dwelling.
  S 22. Subdivision 2 of section 286 of the multiple  dwelling  law,  as
amended by chapter 414 of the laws of 1999, subparagraphs (A) and (B) of

of 2010, is amended to read as follows:
  2.  (i)  Prior to compliance with safety and fire protection standards

pancy,  provided that the unit is their primary residence, and shall pay
the same rent, including escalations, specified in their lease or rental
agreement to the extent to which such lease or rental agreement  remains
in  effect  or,  in the absence of a lease or rental agreement, the same
rent most recently paid and accepted by the owner; if there is no  lease
or  other  rental agreement in effect, rent adjustments prior to article
seven-B compliance shall be in conformity with guidelines to be  set  by
the loft board for such residential occupants within six months from the
effective date of this article.
  (ii)  In  addition to any rent adjustment pursuant to paragraph (i) of
this subdivision, on or after June twenty-first, nineteen hundred  nine-

that are not yet in compliance with the requirements of subdivision  one
of  section two hundred eighty-four of this article shall be adjusted as
follows:
  (A) Upon the owners' filing of an alteration application, as  required
by  paragraph  (ii),  (iii),  (iv),  (v),  or (vi) of subdivision one of
section two hundred eighty-four of this article, an adjustment equal  to

S. 2320                            17

[six]  THREE  percent  of the rent in effect at the time the owner files
the alteration application.
  (B)  Upon  obtaining  an  alteration  permit, as required by paragraph
(ii), (iii), (iv), (v), or  (vi)  of  subdivision  one  of  section  two
hundred  eighty-four  of  this  article,  an adjustment equal to [eight]
THREE percent of the rent in effect at the time the  owner  obtains  the
alteration permit.
  (C)  Upon  achieving  compliance with the standards of safety and fire
protection set forth in article seven-B of this chapter for the residen-
tial portions of the building, an adjustment equal to [six] FOUR percent
of the rent in effect at the time the owner achieves such compliance.
  (D) Owners who filed an alteration application prior to the  effective
date  of this subparagraph shall be entitled to a prospective adjustment
equal to six percent of the rent on the effective date of this  subpara-
graph.
  (E)  Owners  who  obtained  an alteration permit prior to June twenty-
first, nineteen hundred ninety-two shall be entitled  to  a  prospective
adjustment  equal  to fourteen percent of the rent on June twenty-first,
nineteen hundred ninety-two.
  (F) Owners who achieved compliance with the standards  of  safety  and
fire  protection  set  forth  in article seven-B of this chapter for the
residential portions of the building prior to June  twenty-first,  nine-
teen  hundred  ninety-two  shall be entitled to a prospective adjustment
equal to twenty percent of  the  rent  on  June  twenty-first,  nineteen
hundred ninety-two.
  (iii) Any rent adjustments pursuant to paragraph (ii) of this subdivi-
sion  shall  not  apply to units which were rented at market value after
June twenty-first, nineteen hundred eighty-two and prior to  June  twen-
ty-first, nineteen hundred ninety-two. This paragraph shall not apply to
units  made  subject  to this article by subdivision five of section two
hundred eighty-one of this article.
  (iv) Payment of any rent adjustments pursuant  to  paragraph  (ii)  of
this  subdivision  shall  commence  the  month immediately following the
month in which the act entitling the owner to the adjustment occurred.
  S 23. Subdivision 2 of section 285 of the multiple  dwelling  law,  as
amended  by  chapter  135  of  the  laws  of 2010, is amended to read as
follows:
  2. Notwithstanding any other provision of this article, an  owner  may
apply  to  the loft board for exemption of a building or portion thereof
from this article on the basis that  compliance  with  this  article  in
obtaining  a  legal  residential certificate of occupancy would cause an
unjustifiable hardship either because: (i) it would cause  an  unreason-
ably  adverse  impact  on a non-residential conforming use tenant within
the building or (ii) the cost of compliance  renders  legal  residential
conversion  infeasible. Residential and other tenants shall be given not
less than sixty days notice in advance of  the  hearing  date  for  such
application.  If  the loft board approves such application, the building
or portion thereof shall  be  exempt  from  this  article,  and  may  be
converted  to  non-residential  conforming uses, provided, however, that
the owner shall, as a condition of approval of such  application,  agree
to  file  an  irrevocable  recorded covenant in form satisfactory to the
loft board enforceable for fifteen years by the municipality,  that  the
building  will not be re-converted to residential uses during such time.
The standard for granting such hardship application for  a  building  or
portion thereof shall be as follows: (a) the loft board shall only grant
the  minimum  relief  necessary to relieve any alleged hardship with the

S. 2320                            18

understanding if compliance is reasonably possible it should be achieved
even if it requires alteration of units, relocation of tenants to vacant
space within the building, re-design of space or application for a  non-
use-related  variance, special permit, minor modification or administra-
tive certification; (b) self-created hardship shall not be allowed;  (c)
the  test for cost infeasibility shall be that of a reasonable return on
the owner's investment not maximum return on investment;  (d)  the  test
for  unreasonably  adverse  impact  on  a non-residential conforming use
tenant  shall  be  whether  residential  conversion  would   necessitate
displacement.  Such hardship applications shall be submitted to the loft
board within nine months of the establishment of the loft board (or,  in
the  case  of interim multiple dwellings referred to in subdivision four
of section two hundred eighty-one of this article, within nine months of
[the effective date of such subdivision four] JULY TWENTY-SEVENTH, NINE-
TEEN HUNDRED EIGHTY-SEVEN or in the case of interim  multiple  dwellings
made  subject to this article by subdivision five of section two hundred
eighty-one of this article, within nine months of the effective date  of
such subdivision five, OR, FOR UNITS THAT BECAME SUBJECT TO THIS ARTICLE
PURSUANT  TO  THE  CHAPTER  OF  THE  LAWS OF TWO THOUSAND THIRTEEN WHICH
AMENDED THIS PARAGRAPH, WITHIN NINE MONTHS OF THE  PROMULGATION  OF  ALL
NECESSARY  RULES AND REGULATIONS PURSUANT TO SECTION TWO HUNDRED EIGHTY-
TWO-A OF THIS ARTICLE, but shall not be considered, absent a  waiver  by
the  loft  board, unless the owner has also filed an alteration applica-
tion. In determination of any such hardship application, the loft  board
may demand such information as it deems necessary. In approving any such
hardship application, the loft board may fix reasonable terms and condi-
tions for the vacating of residential occupancy.
  S  24.  Paragraph (vi) of subdivision 1 of section 284 of the multiple
dwelling law, as amended by chapter 135 of the laws of 2010, is  amended
to read as follows:
  (vi)  Notwithstanding  the provisions of paragraphs (i) through (v) of
this subdivision the owner of an interim multiple dwelling made  subject
to this article by subdivision five of section two hundred eighty-one of
this article (A) shall file an alteration application within nine months
from  the  effective date of the chapter of the laws of two thousand ten

TEEN WHICH AMENDED THIS PARAGRAPH, WITHIN NINE MONTHS OF  THE  PROMULGA-
TION  OF  ALL  NECESSARY  RULES  AND REGULATIONS PURSUANT TO SECTION TWO

SAND  THIRTEEN WHICH AMENDED THIS PARAGRAPH, WITHIN TWELVE MONTHS OF THE

ance with the standards of safety and fire protection set forth in arti-
cle seven-B of this chapter for the residential portions of the building
within eighteen months from obtaining such alteration permit  [or  eigh-
teen months from such effective date, whichever is later], and (D) shall
take  all  reasonable  and  necessary  action to obtain a certificate of
occupancy as a class A multiple dwelling for the residential portions of
the building or structure within [thirty-six] THIRTY  months  from  such
effective  date, OR FOR UNITS THAT BECAME SUBJECT TO THIS ARTICLE PURSU-
ANT TO THE CHAPTER OF THE LAWS OF TWO THOUSAND  THIRTEEN  WHICH  AMENDED
