construction which real property taxes shall be calculated on the tax
rate in effect at the time such taxes are due; and

(ii) all assessments for local improvements.

(c) Such multiple dwellings shall be eligible for exemption from
taxation pursuant to this section only if:

(i) exemption from taxes is not availed of concurrently under any
other law and that on or after July first, nineteen hundred seventy-six
no preliminary certificate of eligibility or certificate of eligibility
issued under this section may be rescinded by the local housing agency
to avail the property of the benefits of tax exemption or tax abatement
for rehabilitation or new construction under the provisions of any other
law, but that prior to July first, nineteen hundred seventy-six the
local housing agency may rescind such certificates to avail the property
of the benefits of tax exemption or tax abatement under the provisions
of any other law;

(ii) construction is commenced after January first, nineteen hundred
seventy-five and on or before December thirty-first, two thousand
fifteen provided, however, that (A) such a multiple dwelling receives

building or buildings contain more than twenty dwelling units, then such
new construction shall contain at least five dwelling units for each
class A dwelling unit in existence immediately prior to the demolition
preceding construction; and

units, at least 15 per cent of the dwelling units contain at least three
and one-half rooms and at least 10 per cent of the dwelling units
contain at least four and one-half rooms, unless a waiver from such
requirements is granted by the local housing agency based on hardship.

(d) As of July first, nineteen hundred seventy-five, if the aggregate
floor area of commercial, community facility and accessory use space
exceeds twelve per cent of the aggregate floor area, as defined herein,
of any building granted tax exemption pursuant to this section on or
subsequent to July first, nineteen hundred seventy-one, tax exemption
shall be reduced by an amount equal to the per cent of the aggregate
floor area by which the aggregate floor area of commercial, community
facility and accessory use space exceeds twelve per cent of the
aggregate floor area of the building provided, however, that accessory
use space shall not include accessory parking located not more than
twenty-three feet above the curb level and provided, further, that
whenever a building containing two or more separately assessed parcels
of real property has commercial, community facility and accessory use
space in excess of such twelve percent, the tax arising out of the
reduction in exemption for such excess space shall not be apportioned
pro rata among all of the separately assessed parcels in the building
but shall be applied first to those separately assessed parcels which
are unrelated to the residential use of the building; and only after
such unrelated parcels are fully taxable shall the remainder of such tax
be apportioned pro rata among the remaining separately assessed parcels
and provided further, that no such exemption for commercial, community
facility and accessory use space shall be applicable prior to July
first, nineteen hundred seventy-five. To be eligible for exemption under
this section such construction shall take place on land which,
thirty-six months prior to the commencement of such construction, was
vacant, predominantly vacant, under-utilized, or improved with a
non-conforming use, provided that if such new multiple dwelling
displaces or replaces a building or buildings containing more than
twenty-five occupied dwelling units in existence on December
thirty-first, nineteen hundred seventy-four and administered under the
local emergency housing rent control act, the rent stabilization law of
nineteen hundred sixty-nine, or the emergency tenant protection act of
nineteen seventy-four, such new multiple dwelling shall not be eligible
in the city of New York unless a certificate of eviction has been issued
for any of the displaced or replaced units pursuant to the powers
granted by the city rent and rehabilitation law, and that the sale,
transfer or utilization of air rights over residential buildings that
were not demolished shall not be construed as a displacement or
replacement of the dwelling units contained within those buildings
within the meaning of this subdivision.

(e) Any provision of this section to the contrary notwithstanding, the
following properties shall not be eligible for exemption:

(i) any multiple dwelling located in any geographical area where the
exemption is eliminated by regulations promulgated by the local housing
agency, pursuant to subdivision three of this section, upon a finding by
the local housing agency that the need for the tax incentive in such
area has been significantly reduced, or that an area should be preserved
for mainly non-residential purposes in accordance with local municipal
policy; unless construction actually commenced prior to January first,
nineteen hundred eighty-two; provided that the local housing agency
shall not reduce or eliminate such exemption with respect to multiple
dwellings of less than four stories in height, as stories are defined in
the multiple dwelling law, except in areas to be preserved for mainly
non-residential purposes provided further that no regulation regarding
such geographical limitation shall eliminate benefits available pursuant
to this section for construction which is commenced within two years
from the effective date of such regulation, except in areas to be
preserved for mainly non-residential purposes;

(ii) any land which is mapped as a public park, provided, however,
that this exclusion from eligibility for exemption shall not apply to
any land which has been mapped as a public park but which, for a period
of ten years or more after the date of such mapping, has not been
acquired by the state or the city in which such land is located and with
respect to which land the local department of parks and recreation has
determined that such land is not required for public park purposes, and
that such department has no intention of acquiring such land and that no
funds have been allocated for such purpose;

(iii) any land which has been utilized for ten or more consecutive
years prior to October first, nineteen hundred seventy-one as a "private
park" as hereinafter defined. A private park is a privately owned zoning
lot in a densely developed area having a minimum size of four thousand
square feet, free of all developments and containing only trees, grass,
benches, walkways and passive recreational facilities including
structures incidental thereto which has been used and maintained during
said period for such passive recreational activity by the general public
without charge with the consent and participation of the owner thereof;
where construction is commenced after December thirty-first, nineteen
hundred seventy-two, eligibility shall be determined on the basis of the
condition of the land on the first day of October, nineteen hundred
seventy-one.

(f) Notwithstanding the provisions of any local law for the
stabilization of rents in multiple dwellings or the emergency tenant
protection act of nineteen seventy-four, the rents of a unit shall be
fully subject to control under such local law or such act, unless exempt
under such local law or such act from control by reason of the
cooperative or condominium status of the unit, for the entire period
during which the property is receiving tax benefits pursuant to this
section for the period any such applicable law or act is in effect,
whichever is shorter. Thereafter, such rents shall continue to be
subject to such control to the same extent and in the same manner as if
this section had never applied thereto, except that such rents shall be
decontrolled if:

(i) with respect to units subject to the provisions of this section on
the effective date of this subparagraph such a unit becomes vacant after
the expiration of such ten year period or applicable law or act;
provided, however, that such units may be decontrolled pursuant to the
rent regulation reform act of 1993 and provided further that the rent
shall not be decontrolled for a unit which the commissioner of housing
and community renewal or a court of competent jurisdiction finds became
vacant because the landlord or any person acting on his behalf engaged
in any course of conduct, including but not limited to, interruption or
discontinuance of essential services which interfered with or disturbed
or was intended to interfere with or disturb the comfort, repose, peace
or quiet of the tenant in his use or occupancy of such unit, and, that
upon such finding in addition to being subject to any other penalties or
remedies permitted by law, the landlord of such unit shall be barred
from collecting rent for such unit in excess of that charged to the
tenant who vacated such unit until restoration of possession of such
tenant, if the tenant so desires, in which case the rent of such tenant
shall be established as if such tenant had not vacated such unit, or
compliance with such other remedy, including, but not limited to, all
remedies provided for by the emergency tenant protection act of nineteen
seventy-four for rent overcharge or failure to comply with any order of
the commissioner of housing and community renewal, as shall be
determined by the commissioner of housing and community renewal to be
appropriate; provided, however, that if a tenant fails to accept any
such offer of restoration of possession, such unit shall return to rent
stabilization at the previously regulated rent; or

(ii) with respect to units which become subject to the provisions of
this section after the effective date of this subparagraph, such tax
benefit period as provided in the opening paragraph of this paragraph or
applicable law or act shall have expired and either each lease and
renewal thereof for such unit for the tenant in residence at the time of
such decontrol has included a notice in at least twelve point type
informing such tenant that the unit shall become subject to such
decontrol upon the expiration of such tax benefit period as provided in
the opening paragraph of this paragraph or applicable law or act and
states the approximate date on which such tax benefit period as provided
in the opening paragraph of this paragraph is scheduled to expire; or
such unit becomes vacant as provided under subparagraph (i) of this
paragraph.

(g) For purposes of this section construction shall be deemed
"commenced" when excavation or alteration has begun in good faith on the
basis of approved construction plans.

(h) Anything in this section to the contrary notwithstanding, with
regard to a project consisting of two or more multiple dwellings
constructed on a contiguous site and containing an aggregate of not less
than one thousand dwelling units, each of such multiple dwellings shall
be entitled to the exemption set forth herein provided construction of
such project be commenced before January first, nineteen hundred
seventy-eight and completed no later than a date certain fixed by the
local housing agency not to exceed four years from the date of
commencement of construction of such project.

(i) Authority of city to enact local law. Except as otherwise
specified in this section, a city to which this section is applicable
may enact a local law to restrict, limit or condition the eligibility,
scope or amount of the benefits under this section in any manner
provided that such local law may not grant benefits beyond those
provided in this section and provided further that in the city of New
York such local law shall not take effect sooner than one year after it
is enacted. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the provisions of any local
law shall not alter the effect of subdivisions twelve, thirteen,
fourteen, and fifteen of this section as they apply on the effective
date of such subdivisions, notwithstanding any subsequent amendments to
the provisions of law referred to in such subdivisions.

(j) Voluntary renunciation or termination. Notwithstanding the
provisions of any general, special or local law to the contrary, an
owner shall not be entitled to voluntarily renounce or terminate any tax
exemption granted pursuant to this subdivision unless the local housing
agency authorizes such renunciation or termination in connection with
the commencement of a new tax exemption pursuant to either the private
housing finance law or section four hundred twenty-c of this title.

3. a. Application forms for exemption under this section shall be
filed with the assessors between February first and March fifteenth and,
based on the certification of the local housing agency as herein
provided, the assessors shall certify to the collecting officer the
amount of taxes to be abated. If there be in a city of one million
population or more a department of housing preservation and development,
the term "housing agency" shall mean only such department of housing
preservation and development. No such application shall be accepted by
the assessors unless accompanied by a certificate of the local housing
agency certifying the applicant's eligibility pursuant to subdivisions
two and four of this section. No such certification of eligibility shall
be issued by the local housing agency until such agency determines the
initial adjusted monthly rent to be paid by tenants residing in rental
dwelling units contained within the multiple dwelling and the
comparative adjusted monthly rent that would have to be paid by such
tenants if no tax exemption were applicable as provided by this section.
The initial adjusted monthly rent will be certified by the local housing
agency as the first rent for the subject dwelling units. A copy of such
certification with respect to such units shall be attached by the
applicant to the first effective lease or occupancy agreement. The
initial adjusted monthly rent shall reflect the full tax exemption
benefits as approved by the agency.

The agency shall determine the amount of the initial adjusted monthly
rent as follows:

(i) The total project cost shall be determined by adding the following
items:

(a) Land acquisition cost or purchase price, if purchased within two
years prior to the date on which construction or alteration is
commenced; or land acquisition cost or purchase price or an appraisal
prepared by a qualified independent appraiser, in such form as is
acceptable to the agency, if purchased more than two years prior to such
date. Land acquisition cost or purchase price, where used, shall be
certified to by an independent certified public accountant;

(b) Costs incurred in the process of preparing the site for
construction, including but not limited to operating losses, relocation
expenses, demolition expenses and carrying charges, such costs to be
certified by an independent certified public accountant to a date not
more than ninety days prior to the filing of an application for
certification of eligibility and the balance of such costs to be
estimated;

(c) Construction costs for constructing or rehabilitating the multiple
dwelling as determined by the agency in accordance with subdivision four
of this section, plus such amount, if any, representing unique and
special costs as may be allowed by the agency for a particular multiple
dwelling;

(d) An allowance for estimated off-site costs, including but not
limited to architects, engineers and legal fees, interest and taxes
during construction, insurance, title and mortgage fees, as determined
by the agency in accordance with subdivision four of this section, and

(e) such other amounts as are ordinarily and customarily incurred in
connection with the construction or rehabilitation of a multiple
dwelling, as determined by the agency in accordance with subdivision
four of this section.

(ii) The total expenses of the multiple dwelling shall be determined
by adding the following items:

(a) The amount that the agency determines to be the reasonable annual
costs for the continuing maintenance and operation of the multiple
dwelling in accordance with subdivision four of this section;

(b) The amount that the agency determines to be an appropriate annual
provision for vacancies, contingency reserves and management fees in
accordance with subdivision four of this section.

(c) The projected real property taxes to be levied on the multiple
dwelling and the land on which it is situated at the time of estimated
initial occupancy;

(d) Fourteen (14) per cent of the total project cost, as hereinabove
defined, which amount will include all expenses for debt service; and

(e) Deducting from said total the estimated annual income to be
derived from any commercial, community facility or accessory use space
in the building.

(iii) The total expenses shall be divided by the room count to provide
the adjusted monthly rent per room per month.

(iv) The adjusted monthly rent per room per month shall be multiplied
by the room count of each rental dwelling unit to provide the initial
adjusted monthly rent for such dwelling unit. The agency may allow
adjustments in the initial adjusted monthly rent for any particular
dwelling units provided that the total of the initial adjusted monthly
rents for all of the rental dwelling units in a multiple dwelling shall
not exceed the total expenses of such multiple dwelling.

The agency shall determine the estimated comparative adjusted monthly
rent that would have to be paid if no tax exemption were applicable as
provided by this section by adding to the adjusted monthly rent for each
dwelling unit as hereinabove computed an amount equal to (a) the
difference between the projected real property taxes which would be
levied on the multiple dwelling and the land on which it is situated at
the time estimated initial occupancy if no tax abatement were applicable
as provided by this section and the projected real property taxes
hereinabove utilized in connection with the computation of total
expenses; (b) divided by the room count of the building as per this
section; and (c) multiplied by the applicants approved room count of
each such dwelling unit.

The local housing agency may promulgate rules and regulations to carry
out the provisions of this section, not inconsistent with the provisions
hereof, and may require a reasonable filing fee in an amount provided by
such rules and regulations.

b. Notwithstanding the provisions of any general, special or local law
to the contrary, the local housing agency may require by rule that
applications be filed electronically.

4. a. After a public hearing the housing agency shall promulgate
annually to take effect as of January first of each year the amounts
that it determines to be the reasonable amounts in such categories and
classifications as may be established by the housing agency, for such
items as are generally applicable to all developments and are required
to be determined pursuant to subdivision three of this section, which
amounts shall be filed with the city clerk and published in a
publication of general circulation in the city or the city record, if
any, upon adoption by the housing agency.

b. The local housing agency may require a filing fee not to exceed the
greater of (i) four-tenths of one percent of the total project cost, or
(ii) if the building will be owned as a cooperative or condominium,
four-tenths of one percent of the total project cost or four-tenths of
one percent of the total project sell-out price stated in the last
amendment to the offering plan accepted for filing by the attorney
general of the state, at the option of the applicant. Such total project
cost or total project sell-out price shall be determined pursuant to
rules promulgated by the local housing agency. Notwithstanding the
foregoing, the local housing agency may promulgate rules imposing an
additional fee if an application, or any part thereof, or submission in
connection therewith, is defective and such defect delays the processing
of such application or causes the local housing agency to expend
additional resources in the processing of such application.

c. The local housing agency may rely on certification by an architect
or engineer submitted by an applicant in connection with the filing of
an application for benefits pursuant to this section. A false
certification by such architect or engineer shall be deemed to be
professional misconduct pursuant to section sixty-five hundred nine of

a local law enacted pursuant to this section, at any time during the
duration of the building's tax exemption shall result in revocation of
any benefits under this section for the period of such non-compliance.

In the event that the average hourly wage is less than the minimum
average hourly wage set forth in subparagraph (ii) or (iii) of this
paragraph as applicable, the project-wide certified payroll report shall
also set forth the aggregate amount of such deficiency.

(vi) The contractor certified payroll report shall be submitted by
each contractor and sub-contractor no later than ninety days after the
completion of construction work by such contractor or sub-contractor. In
the event that a contractor or sub-contractor fails or refuses to submit
the contractor certified payroll report within the time prescribed in
this subparagraph, the independent monitor shall notify the fiscal
officer and the fiscal officer shall be authorized to fine such
contractor or sub-contractor in the amount of one thousand dollars per
week, or any portion thereof, provided that the maximum fine shall be
seventy-five thousand dollars.

(vii) In the event that the project-wide certified payroll report
shows that the average hourly wage as required by subparagraph (ii) or
(iii) of this paragraph, as applicable, was not paid, (A) if the average
hourly wage is within fifteen percent of the average hourly wage
required by subparagraph (i) or (ii) of this paragraph, as applicable,
then no later than one hundred twenty days from the date of submission
of such project-wide certified payroll report, the applicant shall pay
to the third party fund administrator an amount equal to the amount of
the deficiency set forth in the project-wide certified payroll report.
The third party fund administrator shall distribute such payment to the
construction workers who performed construction work on such eligible
site. Prior to making such repayment, the third party fund administrator
shall submit to the fiscal officer a plan subject to the fiscal
officer's approval setting forth the manner in which the third party
fund administrator will reach the required average wage within one
hundred fifty days of receiving the payment from the applicant and how
any remaining funds will be disbursed in the event that the third party
fund administrator cannot distribute the funds to the construction
workers within one year of receiving fiscal officer approval. In the
event that the applicant fails to make such payment within the time
period prescribed in this subparagraph, the applicant shall be subject
to a fine of one thousand dollars per week provided that the maximum
fine shall be seventy-five thousand dollars; or (B) if the average

shall pay to the third party fund administrator an amount equal to the
amount of the deficiency set forth in the project-wide payroll report.
The third party fund administrator shall distribute such payment to the
construction workers who performed construction work on such eligible
site. Prior to making such repayment, the third party fund administrator
shall submit to the fiscal officer a plan subject to the fiscal
officer's approval setting forth the manner in which the third party
fund administrator will reach the required average wage within one
hundred fifty days of receiving the payment from the applicant and how
any remaining funds will be disbursed in the event that the third party
fund administrator cannot distribute the funds to the construction
workers within one year of receiving fiscal officer approval. In
addition, the fiscal officer shall impose a penalty on the applicant in
an amount equal to twenty-five percent of the amount of the deficiency,
provided, however, that the fiscal officer shall not impose such penalty
where the eligible multiple dwelling has been the subject of a job
action which results in a work delay. In the event that the applicant
fails to make such payment within the time period prescribed in this
subparagraph, the applicant shall be subject to a fine of one thousand
dollars per week, provided that the maximum fine shall be seventy-five
thousand dollars. Notwithstanding any provision of this paragraph, the
applicant shall not be liable in any respect whatsoever for any
payments, fines or penalties related to or resulting from contractor
fraud, mistake, or negligence or for fraudulent or inaccurate contractor
certified payroll reports or for fraudulent or inaccurate project-wide
certified payroll reports, provided, however, that payment to the third
party fund administrator in the amount set forth in the project-wide
certified payroll report as described in this subparagraph shall still
be made by the contractor or sub-contractor in the event of underpayment
resulting from or caused by the contractor or sub-contractor, and that
the applicant will be liable for underpayment to the third party fund
administrator unless the fiscal officer determines, in its sole
discretion, that the underpayment was the result of, or caused by,
contractor fraud, mistake or negligence and/or for fraudulent or
inaccurate contractor certified payroll reports and/or project-wide
certified payroll reports. The applicant shall otherwise not be liable
in any way whatsoever once the payment to the third party fund
administrator has been made in the amount set forth in the project-wide
certified payroll report. Other than the underpayment, which must be
paid to the third party fund administrator, all fines and penalties set
forth in this paragraph imposed by the fiscal officer shall be paid to
the agency and used by the agency to provide affordable housing.

(viii) Nothing in this paragraph shall be construed to confer a
private right of action to enforce the provisions of this paragraph,
provided, however, that this sentence shall not be construed as a waiver
of any existing rights of construction workers or their representatives
related to wage and benefit collection, wage theft or other labor
protections or rights and provided, further, that nothing in this
paragraph relieves any obligations pursuant to a collective bargaining
agreement.

(ix) A rental project containing three hundred or more residential
dwelling units not located within the enhanced affordability area may
elect to comply with the requirements of this paragraph and be eligible
to receive an enhanced thirty-five year benefit. Such election shall be
made in the application and shall not thereafter be changed. Such rental
project shall comply with all of the requirements of this paragraph and
shall be deemed to be located within the Brooklyn enhanced affordability
area or the Queens enhanced affordability area for the purposes of this
paragraph.

(x) The fiscal officer shall have the sole authority to determine and
enforce any liability for underpayment owing to the third party fund
administrator from the applicant and/or the contractor (as a result of
contractor fraud, mistake or negligence and/or for fraudulent or
inaccurate contractor certified payroll reports and/or project-wide
certified payroll reports), as set forth in subparagraph (vii) of this
paragraph. The fiscal officer shall expeditiously conduct an
investigation and hearing at the New York City office of administrative
trials and hearings, shall determine the issues raised thereon and shall
make and file an order in his or her office stating such determination
and forthwith serve a copy of such order, either personally or by mail,
together with notice of filing, upon the parties to such proceedings.
The fiscal officer in such an investigation shall be deemed to be acting
in a judicial capacity and shall have the rights to issue subpoenas,
administer oaths and examine witnesses. The enforcement of a subpoena
issued under this subparagraph shall be regulated by the civil practice
law and rules. The filing of such order shall have the full force and
effect of a judgment duly docketed in the office of the county clerk.
The order may be enforced by and in the name of the fiscal officer in
the same manner, and with like effect, as that prescribed by the civil
practice law and rules for the enforcement of a money judgment.

(d) Tax payments. In addition to any other amounts payable pursuant to
this subdivision, the owner of any eligible site receiving Affordable
New York Housing Program benefits shall pay, in each tax year in which

(i) with respect to each eligible multiple dwelling constructed on
such eligible site, real property taxes on the assessed valuation of
such land and any improvements thereon in effect during the tax year

taxation in effect during such tax year, which real property taxes shall
be calculated using the tax rate in effect at the time such taxes are
due; and

floor area of commercial, community facility and accessory use space in
an eligible site, other than parking which is located not more than
twenty-three feet above the curb level, exceeds twelve percent of the

Housing Program benefits shall be reduced by a percentage equal to such
excess. If an eligible site contains multiple tax lots, the tax arising
out of such reduction in Affordable New York Housing Program benefits
shall first be apportioned pro rata among any non-residential tax lots.
After any such non-residential tax lots are fully taxable, the remainder
of the tax arising out of such reduction in Affordable New York Housing
Program benefits, if any, shall be apportioned pro rata among the
remaining residential tax lots.

certifying the applicant's eligibility for Affordable New York Housing

restriction period to the extent provided in such paragraph.

the period of such non-compliance.

(vi) Nothing in this subdivision shall (A) prohibit the occupancy of
an affordable housing unit by individuals or families whose income at
any time is less than the maximum percentage of the area median income,
adjusted for family size, specified for such affordable housing unit
pursuant to this subdivision, or (B) prohibit the owner of an eligible
site from requiring, upon initial rental or upon any rental following a
