Introduced by M. of A. WEPRIN -- read once and referred to the Committee
  on Real Property Taxation

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

  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 (gg) to read as follows:
  (GG)  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 TWENTY, 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.
WHERE THE 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  ZERO  PERCENT
INCREASE  AND  THE LEGISLATIVE BODY OF SUCH SPECIAL ASSESSING UNIT SHALL
ALTER THE CURRENT BASE PROPORTION OF ANY OR  ALL  REMAINING  CLASSES  SO
THAT THE SUM OF THE CURRENT BASE PROPORTIONS EQUALS ONE.
  §  2. In the event the special assessing unit which is a city has sent
out real property tax bills for its fiscal year  2020  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
