BILL NUMBER:S6605

TITLE OF BILL: An act to authorize the city of Troy, county of
Rensselaer to forgive certain past due property taxes due from START
Children's Center, Inc.

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:

Authorize certain property tax forgiveness.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section 1.
Notwithstanding any other provision of any law to the contrary, the
assessor of the city of Troy is hereby authorized to forgive past due
property taxes from START Children's Center, Inc. for the period of
time from May 1, 2012 through June 30, 2012, totaling three thousand
six hundred eighty-four dollars and seventy-one cents for the parcel
located at 131 Sixth Avenue, Troy, New York, 12180, also known as Lot
90.39 of Block 5 of Section 19.

JUSTIFICATION:

In May 2012 START Children's Center, Inc., purchased the parcel
located at 131 Sixth Avenue, Troy, New York, 12180, also known as Lot
90.39 of Block 5 of Section 19 from ARC. Both organizations are tax
exempt, 501c(3) organizations. When ARC moved out of the premises, the
City of Troy placed the property back on the tax role, pursuant to New
York State law. START Children's Center, Inc. filed a tax exemption
form with the City of Troy on November 8, 2012. However, START
Children's Center, Inc. is still liable for both school and property
taxes dating back to the date of purchase. If forced to pay the owed
taxes for the property, START Children's Center, Inc. would be
severely impacted fiscally and critical services provided to children
in Rensselaer County would be endangered.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

New Bill

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

None to the state.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect immediately.
