BILL NUMBER:S2467 REVISED 1/28/13

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the tax law, in relation to exempting hospitals from the
metropolitan commuter transportation mobility tax

PURPOSE: Exempts hospitals from the metropolitan
commuter
transportation mobility tax.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section one amends paragraph three and four of subsection
eight-hundred of the tax law, paragraph three as amended and adds a
new paragraph five.

Section two is the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: Chapter 56 of the Laws of 2011
exempted public and
non-public schools, employers with total payroll expenses less than
$1..25 million, and self-employed taxpayers with business income less
than $50,000 from the MIA payroll tax. The measure did not include
hospitals, a vital sector of the economy.

This legislation seeks to add hospitals to the list of institutions
that are exempt from the MTA payroll tax. Hospitals promote health
and wellness while employing many hardworking New Yorkers. By
exempting hospitals from the MTA payroll tax, we would be saving
hospitals money that could be used in providing quality, affordable
health care for patients.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2012: S.6461 - Referred to
Investigations/A.10436 - Referred to Ways & Means

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: Undetermined.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect on the
first of April next
succeeding the date on which it shall have become a law.
