authorized and empowered to adopt and amend local laws imposing  in  any

surcharge on residents of such city at a rate not to exceed nineteen and
one-quarter  percent of the net state tax as defined in section thirteen
hundred twenty-three of this article, such city income tax surcharge  to

local law shall be so effective unless such local law is enacted by July
thirty-first, nineteen hundred eighty-four and unless a  certified  copy
of  such  local  law  is  mailed  by registered or certified mail to the
commissioner  at  the commissioner's office in Albany by such date. (ii)
If the requirements of paragraph (i) of this subsection are not  met,  a

into effect on the first day of the next succeeding  January  and  shall
apply  to  taxable  years beginning on or after such date and before two

date  and before two thousand [fourteen] SIXTEEN.  Provided, however, no
such local law shall be so effective unless such local law is enacted by
July thirty-first, nineteen hundred eighty-four and unless  a  certified
copy  of such local law is mailed by registered or certified mail to the
commissioner at such commissioner's office in Albany by such date.  (ii)

sioner's duties under this article. (iii) Any amendment of such a  local
law  enacted pursuant to the authority of the section, which changes the
rate of the income tax surcharge on residents, shall take effect on  the
first  day of January in the year in which such amendment is enacted and
