BILL NUMBER:S3062

TITLE OF BILL: An act in relation to providing an alternative method
for equalization in the Riverhead central school district in order to
provide tax stability; and providing for the repeal of such provisions
upon expiration thereof

PURPOSE: This legislation provides an alternative method for equaliza-
tion in Riverhead Central School District.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1. The Riverhead Central School District shall have its school
taxes apportioned among the towns by taking the average of the appor-
tionment of school taxes for each town for the previous five years as
calculated pursuant to Section 1314 of the Real Property Tax Law,
including the year for which the taxes are to be levied. This act has an
immediate effective date and shall apply to the apportionment of school
taxes for years occurring after the effective date up until December 31,
2017 when the provisions of this act shall expire.

Section 2. Directs the Riverhead Central School District, in consulta-
tion with the Department of Taxation and Finance, to prepare a report
that is to be submitted to the Governor, the Temporary President of the
Senate and the Speaker of the Assembly on or before December 16, 2017
describing and evaluating the effectiveness and administration of this
method for equalization. The report shall include, but not be limited
to, for each year the program exists, a comparison of the utilized
apportioned school taxes to those that would have been utilized if not
for the program, an evaluation as to whether the use of a five-year
average of apportionment of school taxes is beneficial to the property
owners within the school district and recommendations for any legisla-
tive action.

Section 3. This act has an immediate effective date and shall apply to
the apportionment of school taxes for years occurring after the effec-
tive date up until December 31, 2017 when the provisions of this act
shall expire.

JUSTIFICATION: Since the Riverhead Central School District has its tax
rates apportioned between the towns of Riverhead, Brookhaven and South-
ampton, this legislation is necessary to provide greater tax stabiliza-
tion by establishing an alternative method for equalization.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2011-12 S.4884B/A.2401E

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None to the State.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately and shall apply
to the apportionment of school taxes for years occurring after the
effective date, provided that this act shall remain in full force and

effect until December 31, 2017, when upon such date this act shall
expire and be deemed repealed.
