AN ACT to amend the real property tax law, in relation to the redemption
  of multiple liens on farm property

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

  Section 1. Subdivisions 1 and 2 of section 1112 of the  real  property
tax  law,  as amended by chapter 532 of the laws of 1994, are amended to
read as follows:
  1.  When a tax district holds more than one tax lien against a parcel,
the liens need not be redeemed simultaneously.  (A) However,  the  liens
ON  A  PARCEL,  WHICH  IS NOT FARM PROPERTY, must be redeemed in reverse
chronological order, so that the lien with the most recent lien date  is
redeemed  first,  and  the  lien with the earliest lien date is redeemed
last. Notwithstanding the redemption of one or more of the liens against
SUCH a parcel as provided [herein]  IN  THIS  ARTICLE,  the  enforcement
process  shall  proceed  according  to the provisions of this article as
long as the earliest lien remains unredeemed.
  (B) HOWEVER, IN THE CASE OF LIENS AGAINST A PARCEL, THAT IS FARM PROP-
ERTY, THE LIENS MUST BE REDEEMED IN CHRONOLOGICAL  ORDER,  SO  THAT  THE
LIEN  WITH  THE  EARLIEST LIEN DATE IS REDEEMED FIRST, AND THE LIEN WITH
THE MOST RECENT LIEN DATE IS REDEEMED LAST. NOTWITHSTANDING THE  REDEMP-
TION  OF ONE OR MORE OF THE LIENS AGAINST A PARCEL THAT IS FARM PROPERTY
AS PROVIDED IN THIS  ARTICLE,  THE  ENFORCEMENT  PROCESS  SHALL  PROCEED
ACCORDING  TO  THE PROVISIONS OF THIS ARTICLE AS LONG AS THE MOST RECENT
LIEN REMAINS UNREDEEMED.
  2. (a) When one or more liens against a parcel, THAT IS NOT FARM PROP-
ERTY, are redeemed as provided [herein] IN THIS ARTICLE, but the  earli-
est  lien remains unredeemed, the receipt issued to the person redeeming
shall include a statement in substantially the following  form:    "This
parcel  remains subject to one or more delinquent tax liens. The payment
you have made will not postpone the enforcement of the outstanding  lien
or liens. Continued failure to pay the entire amount owed will result in
the loss of the property."

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