BILL NUMBER:S571

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend chapter 25 of the laws of 2009, amending the tax law and the
administrative code of the city of New York relating to the metropolitan
commuter transportation mobility tax,
and the education law, in relation to the
imposition of such tax upon and reimbursement thereof to public and
private elementary and secondary schools

PURPOSE:
Provides for state reimbursement to all elementary and
secondary schools for the cost of metropolitan commuter
transportation mobility tax payments.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1: Amends Paragraph (i) of subdivision (a) of section 23 of
part c of chapter 25 of the laws of 2009, amending the tax law and the
administrative code of the city of New York relating to the
metropolitan commuter transportation mobility tax. Under this bill,
the tax shall not be imposed on employers that are not only public
school districts, but also all non-public and private elementary and
secondary schools within the metropolitan commuter transportation
district (MCTD).

Section 2: Amends Subdivision 1 of section 3609-g of the education
law, as added by section 1 of part D of a chapter of the laws of
2009, amending the education law relating to certain moneys
apportioned to school districts for reimbursement of article
twenty-three of the tax law payments. The definition of "School
district" is amended to include all non-public and private elementary
and secondary schools.

JUSTIFICATION:
Under current law, employers within the metropolitan
commuter transportation district's are required to pay a metropolitan
commuter transportation mobility tax; whereas, public school
districts are entitled to full reimbursement; however, non-public and
private elementary and secondary schools have been excluded. This
bill enables all non-public and private elementary and secondary
schools to be entitled to the same reimbursements as public school
districts.
