BILL NUMBER:S5588

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the real property tax law, in relation
to temporarily extending the maximum term of installment agreements
for payment of delinquent taxes

PURPOSE: This bill would permit local governments to increase the
maximum term of installment agreement for payment of delinquent taxes
from twenty four months to thirty six months, until December 31, 2015.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1 of the bill amends subdivision 3 of section 1184 of the real
property tax law as it relates to increasing the installment agreement
to thirty six months.

Section 2 relates to effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: As the economic conditions continue to worsen, more
and more New Yorkers have been unable to pay their property taxes on
time. Local governments are able to negotiate with these citizens and
place them on an installment plan, however, by law they are limited to
a 24 month time period. This law would permit the local government, at
their option, to increase the installment period to 36 months, thereby
helping New Yorkers avoid foreclosure.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: A6790 of 2011-12; A7147A of 2009-2010

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: To be determined

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately and shall
expire and be deemed repealed December 31, 2015.
