BILL NUMBER:S2263

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the tax law, in relation to
establishing business franchise and personal income tax credits for
employers which provide care for the elderly dependents of their
employees during work hours and establishing a personal income tax
credit for the provision of care to the elderly dependent of a
taxpayer during work hours

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: Provides employers with a tax credit
for care to adult dependents of employees and expenditures to provide
dependent employees with a similar credit.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section 1: Amends Tax Law section 210 to add a new subdivision 46 that
creates a income tax credit of up to $1000 per adult care recipient to
any employer who provides or pays for adult dependent care for the
adult dependents of its employees during business hours.

Section 2: Amends Tax Law section 606 to add a new subsection (vv) to
allow a taxpayer credit against the tax. imposed in an amount not in
excess of $1000 for each adult day care recipient, which care must be
provided in an eligible facility.

Section 3 and 4: The commissioners of taxation and finance and
children and family services shall promulgate any and all rules and
regulations and take any other measure necessary to implement this act
on its effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: An increasing number of New Yorkers are relying on
adult care services to provide care for their adult dependents while
they work outside the home. These services will become even more
common as the number of senior citizens in New York continues to grow
over the next several years. Just as child day care services have
become an essential element of our state economy and help millions of
New Yorkers to balance the needs of career and family, adult care
services provide an equally important service to the growing
population of New Yorkers who balance careers with caring for elderly
or disabled relatives. This tax credit would help ease the financial
burdens on caregivers and help ensure that dependent senior citizens
receive the quality care and services they need. It would also
encourage employers to offer adult care services to their employees.

A.5136 Ways & Means 2009-10: S.6222 Investigations & Government
Operations 2011-12: S. 613 Investigations & Government Operations

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect on the 1st of January next
succeeding the date on which it shall have become a law and shall
apply to taxable years commencing on and after such effective date;
provided, however, that effective immediately, the commissioners of
taxation and finance, and children and family services are authorized
and directed to promulgate any rules and regulations and take any
other measures necessary to implement the provisions of this act on
its effective date.
