BILL NUMBER:S4555

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the tax law, in relation to the
imposition of additional sales and compensating use tax in Fulton
county

PURPOSE:

To extend, for another two years, the authority of Fulton County to
impose an additional sales and use tax of one percent.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1210 of the Tax Law is amended to extend, until November 30,
2015, the authority of Fulton County to impose a sales and use tax
which is one percent additional to the three percent rate that is
generally authorized by state law.

EXISTING LAW:

Section 1210 of the Tax Law currently authorizes Fulton County to
impose the additional one percent sales and use tax until November 30,
2013.

JUSTIFICATION:

In 2005, the Fulton County Board of Supervisors requested legislation
to impose an additional 1% sales tax in order to help diversify its
revenue sources and thereby help alleviate the property tax burden.
This authority was initially granted for two years, and was renewed in
2007, 2009 and 2011. These sales tax revenues are a necessary part of
the County's financial plan, and this bill would extend, for another
two years, the authority of Fulton County to impose this additional
sales tax.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

None to the State.

LOCAL FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

This bill will continue the current level of local sales tax revenue
received by Fulton County.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

Immediate.
