BILL NUMBER:S5737 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the real property tax law, in relation to the determination of adjusted base proportions in special assessing units which are cities for the fiscal year two thousand fourteen SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: This bill would amend section 1803-a of the Real Property Tax Law to cap the maximum class growth rate at one percent for fiscal year 2014. JUSTIFICATION: State law requires New York City to adopt class shares based on rates calculated by the State Board of Real Property Services (SBRPS) in order to distribute the tax levy among the four classes of real property. This year the State Board's class equalization rates would cause the tax burden on property tax class one, comprised one-, two-, and three-family homes, to increase, as it has done over the past several years. This bill is designed to provide relief for the residential property tax class one without placing a burden on to class two which is the other residential tax class. The "uncapped" current base proportions of class one would grow by over 4 percent from fiscal year 2013, under the State Board's calculations. Currently. State law provides that the current base proportion of anyone class may not exceed the adjusted base proportion for that class from the prior year by more than five percent.
