AN ACT to amend the real property tax law, in relation to limiting  base
  proportion for the 2012-2013 assessment roll in the county of Suffolk


  Section 1. Subparagraph (iv) of paragraph  (a)  of  subdivision  3  of
section  1903 of the real property tax law, as amended by chapter 145 of
the laws of 2008, is amended to read as follows:
  (iv) Notwithstanding any  other  provision  of  law,  in  an  approved
assessing unit in the county of Suffolk and for current base proportions
to  be  determined  by taxes based on such approved assessing unit's two
thousand three - two thousand four, two thousand  four  -  two  thousand
five  and  two  thousand  five  - two thousand six assessment rolls, the
current base proportion of any class shall not exceed the adjusted  base
proportion  or  adjusted  proportion,  whichever  is appropriate, of the
immediately preceding year by more than two percent, or in the  case  of
the  two thousand five--two thousand six, two thousand six--two thousand
seven, two thousand seven--two thousand eight [and], two thousand eight-
assessment  rolls,  one  percent.  Where the computation of current base
proportions would  otherwise  produce  such  result,  the  current  base
proportion of such class or classes shall be limited to such two percent
or  one  percent  increase  whichever is applicable, and the legislative
body of such approved  assessing  unit  shall  alter  the  current  base
proportion  of  either  class  so  that  the  sum  of  the  current base
proportions equals one.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
