BILL NUMBER:S2767

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the tax law, in relation to suspending
the state sales and compensating use tax on certain disaster clean-up
items during a state of emergency and authorizing localities to waive
such tax during the same period

PURPOSE OF THE BILL: To assist property owners during times of emergen-
cy cleanup by waiving sales tax on cleanup activities.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section 1 amends section 1115 of the Tax Law by adding a new subsection
(ii) to allow the Governor to temporarily suspend, by executive order,
during a state disaster emergency, and for up to sixty days after the
end of such state of emergency, sales and compensating taxes associated
with property clean up activities taxable under subdivision (c) of Tax
law section 1105 and Tax law 1110.

Section 2 amends Tax Law subparagraph 1210(a)(1) to add the exemption
provided under new section 1115(hh).

Section 3 amends Tax Law subdivision 1210(d) to permit local governments
the option to suspend their local sales and use taxes on clean up activ-
ities as described in Tax Law 1115 (hh) for the same period that state
taxes are suspended.

Section 4 amends Tax Law 1210 by adding a new subdivision (q) permitting
a city with a population of over one million, by resolution, to suspend
sales and use taxes during the same periods of clean up activities
described in Tax Law section 1115.

Section 5 permits any county or city imposing sales and compensating use
taxes pursuant to Article 29 of the Tax Law, or any city with a popu-
lation of over one million imposing sales and compensating use taxes
pursuant to Tax Law section 1107 to suspend sales and use taxes for
clean up activities during the same periods of clean up activities
described in Tax Law section 1115.

Section 6 provides that the act shall take effect immediately and shall
apply to any sales made and uses occurring during exemption periods on
or after the date of enactment.

JUSTIFICATION: Sales and compensating taxes are imposed on lawn mainte-
nance activities pursuant to Tax Law 1105(c). During times of storm,
flood, hurricane or other disaster, such clean up costs can be enormous
and overwhelming for property owners. During snow storms in Western New
York, trees and branches covered lawns and driveways, and the costs for
cleaning up this disaster for homeowners was often thousands of dollars.
More recently, many areas of the State suffered severe damages from
Hurricane Irene. Most recently the residents in the Long Island and

Greater New York City area have faced millions of dollars in damages
from Superstorm Sandy. These costs provided an unexpected and unwar-
ranted windfall to the state and local governments in the form of sales
taxes generated by this emergency.

Clearly, any part of the state could suffer a similar disaster, whether
it be caused by a hurricane, heavy rains, snow or wind. This bill gives
the Governor greater flexibility to assist and protect our residents
with the option to suspend sales taxes on clean up activities for the
duration of the state of emergency and up to sixty days thereafter, and
also allows cities and counties to similarly suspend their sales taxes
on these activities as well. When residents in our state face such an
emergency, it is not proper for the state to prosper from their misfor-
tune.
