AN ACT to amend chapter 311 of the laws of 1920 relating to the  assess-
  ment and collection of taxes in Suffolk county, in relation to author-
  izing  certain  local governments to alter property tax payment sched-
  ules; and providing  for  the  repeal  of  such  provisions  upon  the
  expiration thereof


  Section 1. Subdivision (c) and the closing paragraph of section 13  of
chapter  311  of  the  laws  of  1920  relating  to  the  assessment and
collection of taxes in Suffolk county, as amended by chapter 745 of  the
laws of 1959, are amended to read as follows:
  (c)  Authorization  for [two] INSTALLMENT payments of taxes. Not later
than June fifteenth in any year, the town board of any town may adopt  a
resolution, which shall be subject to a permissive referendum as herein-
after provided; that after December first next succeeding all taxes upon
real  estate  in  the tax roll shall be due and payable and shall be and
become liens on the real estate affected thereby, and shall be construed
as and deemed to be charges thereon on December first of each year,  and
not earlier, and shall remain such liens until paid.  Provided, however,
that there shall be no penalty if one-half of all such taxes are paid to
the  receiver  on  or before the succeeding tenth day of January and the
second one-half of all such taxes are paid to the receiver on or  before
the  succeeding  thirty-first  day of May. On all such first one-half of
taxes upon real estate remaining unpaid on the tenth day of January, one
per centum of the amount of the said one-half of the tax will be  added,
and  an  additional  one per centum will be added for each month or part
thereof thereafter, until the return of the warrant to the county treas-
urer. The second one-half of the tax on real estate which is due on  the
preceding first day of December may be paid without penalty on the tenth
day  of  May  or  at  any time thereafter, until, but not including, the
succeeding first day of June, providing the first one-half of  such  tax
shall  have  been  paid  or  shall be paid at the same time. The warrant
