BILL NUMBER: S6324 SPONSOR: GOUNARDES 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 SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: This bill would amend section 1803-a of the Real Property Tax Law to cap the maximum class growth rate at zero percent for fiscal year 2020. 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 of one-, two, and three-fa- mily homes) to increase, as it has done over the past several years.
