AN ACT to amend the real property tax law, in relation to  the  determi-
  nation  of  adjusted base proportions in special assessing units which
  are cities for the fiscal year two thousand fourteen

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.  Subdivision  1 of section 1803-a of the real property tax
law is amended by adding a new paragraph (y) to read as follows:
  (Y) NOTWITHSTANDING THE PROVISIONS OF PARAGRAPH (C) OF  THIS  SUBDIVI-
SION  TO  THE  CONTRARY, IN A SPECIAL ASSESSING UNIT WHICH IS A CITY AND
FOR CURRENT BASE PROPORTIONS TO BE DETERMINED IN SUCH SPECIAL  ASSESSING
UNIT'S FISCAL YEAR TWO THOUSAND FOURTEEN, THE CURRENT BASE PROPORTION OF
ANY  CLASS  SHALL  NOT  EXCEED  THE ADJUSTED BASE PROPORTION OR ADJUSTED
PROPORTION, WHICHEVER IS APPROPRIATE, OF THE IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING  YEAR
BY  MORE  THAN  ONE PERCENT. WHERE THE COMPUTATION PERFORMED PURSUANT TO
PARAGRAPH (B) OF THIS SUBDIVISION WOULD OTHERWISE PRODUCE  SUCH  RESULT,
THE CURRENT BASE PROPORTION OF SUCH CLASS OR CLASSES SHALL BE LIMITED TO
A  ONE PERCENT INCREASE AND THE LEGISLATIVE BODY OF SUCH SPECIAL ASSESS-
ING UNIT SHALL ALTER THE CURRENT BASE PROPORTION OF ANY OR ALL REMAINING
CLASSES SO THAT THE SUM OF THE CURRENT BASE PROPORTIONS EQUALS ONE.
  S 2. In the event the special assessing unit which is a city has  sent
out  real  property  tax  bills for its fiscal year 2014 before this act
shall have become a law, the city shall take such actions as are  neces-
sary,  consistent  with  applicable  state  and local law, to effect the
provisions of section one of this act, including, but  not  limited  to,
revising  the  current  base  proportions and adjusted base proportions,
resetting the real property tax rates and sending amended real  property
tax  bills.  Provided, however, that nothing in this act shall be deemed
to affect the obligation of any taxpayer with respect to the payment  of
any  installment of real property tax for such fiscal year which was due

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
