BILL NUMBER:S4566

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the tax law, in relation to the
imposition of sales and compensating use tax in Schenectady county

PURPOSE:

To extend, for another two years, the authority of Schenectady County
to impose an additional sales and use tax of one-half of one percent.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1210 of the Tax Law is amended to extend, until November 30,
2015, the authority of Schenectady County to impose a sales and use
tax which is one-half of one percent additional to the three percent
rate that is generally authorized by state law.

EXISTING LAW:

Section 1210 of the Tax Law currently authorizes Schenectady County to
impose the additional one-half of one percent sales and use tax until
November 30, 2013.

JUSTIFICATION:

In 2003, the Schenectady County Legislature requested legislation to
impose an additional one-half percent sales tax in order to help
address its financial needs and diversify its revenue sources. This
authority was initially granted for two years, and was renewed in
2005, 2007, 2009 and 2011. These sales tax revenues are a necessary
part of the County's financial plan, and this bill would extend, for
another two years, the authority of Schenectady County to impose this
additional sales tax.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

None to the State.

LOCAL FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

This bill will continue the current level of local sales tax revenue
received by Schenectady County.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

Immediate.
