BILL NUMBER:S1799
TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the administrative code of the city of
New York and the tax law, in relation to establishing a tax table
benefit recapture; and in relation to New York city personal income
tax rates
PURPOSE: To provide a tax benefit to lower income and middle class
residents of the city of New York.
SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1 Amends section 111701 of the Administrative Code of the
city of New York by adding a subdivision that implements a new
supplemental tax. The sum of the tax shall be calculated by the tax
table benefit multiplied by a fraction which is dependent upon income
and filing status. Only the following types of filers who make income
above the specified amounts below would be taxed.
Families with a taxable income of 250,000 or more, would receive a
tax table benefit of $333 dollars. They would be taxed at rate
determined by their tax table benefit multiplied by a numerator of the
lesser of $50,000 dollars or the taxable income of the filer that
exceeds $250,000 dollars and a denominator of $50,000 dollars.
Resident unmarried individuals and resident married individuals
filling separate returns with a taxable income of 150,000 or more
would receive a tax table benefit of $185 dollars. They would be taxed
at rate determined by their tax table benefit multiplied by a
numerator of the lesser of $50,000 dollars or the taxable income of
the filer that exceeds $150,000 dollars and a denominator of $50,000
dollars.
Resident head of household with a taxable income of 180,000 or more
would receive a tax table benefit of $222 dollars. They would be taxed
at rate determined by their tax table benefit multiplied by a
numerator of the lesser of $50,000 dollars or the taxable income of
the filer that exceeds $180,000 dollars and a denominator of $50,000
dollars.
Section 2 Amends paragraph 1 of subdivision (a) of section 111701 of
the administrative code of the City of New York by adding subparagraph
(c) to set new tax brackets for New York City's Personal Income Tax.
Section 3 Amends paragraph 2 of subdivision (a) of section 111701 of
the administrative code of the City of New York by adding subparagraph
(c) to set new tax brackets for New York City's Personal Income Tax.
Section 4 Amends paragraph 3 of subdivision (a) of section 111701 of
the administrative code of the City of New York by adding subparagraph
(c) to set new tax brackets for New York City's Personal Income Tax.
Section 5 Amends Paragraph 1 of subsection (a) of section tax law by
adding subparagraph (c) to set new tax brackets City's Personal Income
Tax.
Section 6 Amends paragraph 2 of subsection (a) of section 1304 of the
tax law by adding subparagraph (c) to set new tax brackets for New
York City's Personal Income Tax.
Section 7 Amends paragraph 3 of subsection (a) of subsection (a) of
section 1304 of the tax law by adding subparagraph (c) to set new tax
brackets for New York City's Personal Income Tax.
JUSTIFICATION: Residents of New York City are contending with
skyrocketing prices of goods and services, pushing their cost of
living ever higher, while wages remain stagnant. Half of rental
households in New York City devoted more than 30% of their incomes
toward rent and utilities in 2010, with one in four households
spending more than 50% on these expenses. Over 1.8 million New York
City residents are recipients of food stampsan increase of 50% over
the past three years alone.
While the working class struggles to make ends meet, a small number of
people are amassing more and more wealth. New York City is home to
some of the worst poverty and income inequality in the United States.
The top 20 percent of income earners in Manhattan make nearly 38 times
as much as the bottom 20 percent the greatest differential in the
country. And the Bronx, with a child poverty rate of 50 percent, is
the poorest urban county in America. Reducing the tax burden on low
and middle class families will assist those most in need while
benefiting New York City's economy.
"The Middle Class Tax Cut Act" addresses the at risk middle class who
are finding it increasingly difficult to stay in the five boroughs.
Currently, New York City has only five tax brackets with individuals
earning $50,000 a year paying the same tax rate as individuals earning
$500,000. In line with Governor Cuomo's bipartisan reform of the
State's income tax system earlier this year, the Middle Class Tax Cut
Act will cut the tax rate for all families earning less than $300,000
and all individual filers earning less than $200,000. That means that
95% of New York City residents will receive a tax cut. This cut will
provide families with up to $333 in tax reliefa small, but meaningful
sum for people living paycheck to paycheck. At the same time, tax
increases are limited to people making more than $1 million per year.
New York City's economy is dependent on middle class New Yorkers who
are in turn dependent on the implementation of a fair tax structure.
"The Middle Class TaxCut Act" is a comprehensive progressive reform
to NYC's Personal Income Tax that will bring fairness to the system
and will put more money in the pockets of middle class New Yorkers who
live in one of the most expensive cities in the world.
LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill.
FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: To be determined.
EFFECTIVE DATE:; This act shall take effect immediately.
