BILL NUMBER:S7257

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the real property tax law, in relation
to establishing a partial abatement of real property taxes on real
property that was rebuilt after being seriously damaged by the severe
storm that occurred on the twenty-ninth and thirtieth of October, two
thousand twelve in a city having a population of one million or more

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section one of this bill adds a new section 467-h to the Real Property
Tax Law to authorize New York City to grant a partial abatement of
real property taxes for certain class one, class two and class four
properties. The properties that will be eligible for this abatement
must satisfy the following conditions as of the applicable taxable
status date:

1. The Department of Finance reduced the assessed valuation of the
building on the property for fiscal year 2014 from the assessed
valuation for fiscal year 2013 as a result of damage caused by
Hurricane Sandy.

2. The Department of Finance increased the assessed valuation of the
building for fiscal year 2015 from its assessed valuation for fiscal
year 2014.

3. The assessed valuation of the building for fiscal year 2015 exceeds
that for fiscal year 2013.

For class one and smaller class two properties that satisfy these
conditions, the amount of the abatement will be the amount by which
the tax on the property for fiscal year 2015 exceeds the tax for
fiscal year 2013. For class four and larger class two properties that
satisfy these conditions, the amount of the abatement will be the
difference between the physical add-back in fiscal year 2015 and the
physical decrease in fiscal year 2014. To the extent the square
footage used to determine the assessed valuation of the building on
the property for fiscal year 2015 exceeds that for fiscal year 2013,
the bill provides that the Department of Finance will recalculate the
abatement to reduce it by the portion of the tax for fiscal year 2015
that is attributable to the excess square footage of the building.

The bill also includes provisions for the correction of erroneous
abatements and the collection of the amount of abatements granted in
error, and for the adjustment of abatements granted to properties for
which the assessed valuation and the corresponding real property tax
have been reduced.

Section two provides that the bill shall take effect immediately.

REASONS FOR SUPPORT: In its recent report, "One City, Rebuilding
Together: A Report on the City of New York's Response to Hurricane
Sandy and the Path Forward," the City set forth a number of policies
to streamline the recovery process and prioritize rebuilding. The
policies outlined in the report include, but are not limited to,
improving the experience of homeowners navigating the preconstruction
process, enhancing coordination amongst city, state and federal


partners, and engaging local communities in the rebuilding process.
Notably, the report also recommends providing additional financial
relief to homeowners. This legislation does just that.

This bill would provide real property tax relief to New York City
residents who repaired or rebuilt properties that were severely
damaged by Hurricane Sandy. Even if the repair or rebuilding merely
restored a building to its condition prior to the storm, the assessed
valuation and therefore, the real property taxes, of some of these
properties will be higher in fiscal year 2015 than in fiscal year
2013. In order to assist these property owners, this bill authorizes
New York City to enact a local law granting a partial abatement of
real property taxes so that the owners of these properties will not
incur such an increase in real property taxes for fiscal year 2015.

The amount of the real property tax abatement will reflect the
increase in the real property tax attributable to improvements on the
eligible property which, for purposes of this legislation, includes
certain class one, class two and class four properties. In the event
that the repair or rebuilding resulted in an increase in the square
footage of the affected property, the bill provides that the
Department of Finance will recalculate the abatement to reduce it by
the portion of the tax for fiscal year 2015 that is attributable to
the excess square footage of the property.

The worst natural disaster ever to hit the City of New York, Hurricane
Sandy, cost forty-four New Yorkers their lives. Many more residents
lost homes or businesses, and entire communities were sent reeling by
the storm's devastating impact. There is a great deal more work to do
to help the hardest-hit communities get back on their feet and we must
continue to be vigilant in marshaling City resources to provide relief
to those who need it most.

Unfortunately, the statutory real property tax assessment structure
does not contemplate the unique circumstance that many property owners
find themselves in as a result of Hurricane Sandy: that these property
owners would, in effect, suffer a tax penalty for rebuilding their
storm-torn properties.

This real property tax abatement provides an absolutely necessary
measure of relief to owners of class one, class two and class four
properties who began the rebuilding process to return to normalcy.

Accordingly, the Mayor urges the earliest possible favorable
consideration of this proposal by the Legislature.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

Immediately.
