tables contained in such subsection. The supplemental tax shall be an

shall not apply to taxpayers who are not subject to the second highest
rate of tax.

subsection (a) of this section not subject to the second highest rate of
tax for the taxable year multiplied by such rate and (ii) the second
highest dollar denominated tax for such amount of taxable income set
forth in the tax table applicable to the taxable year in subsection (a)
of this section.

(B) The fraction is computed as follows: the numerator is the lesser
of fifty thousand dollars or the excess of New York adjusted gross
income for the taxable year over one hundred fifty thousand dollars and
the denominator is fifty thousand dollars.

(C) This paragraph shall only apply to taxable years beginning after
two thousand two and before two thousand six.

(2) Resident married individuals filing joint returns, surviving
spouses, resident heads of households, resident unmarried individuals,
resident married individuals filing separate returns and resident
estates and trusts. (A) The tax table benefit is the difference between
(i) the amount of taxable income set forth in the tax table in
subsection (a) of this section not subject to the highest rate of tax
for the taxable year multiplied by such rate and (ii) the highest dollar
denominated tax set forth in the tax table applicable to the taxable
year in subsection (a) of this section less the sum of the tax table
benefits in paragraph one of this subsection.

(B) For such taxpayers with adjusted gross income over five hundred
thousand dollars, the fraction is one. Provided, however, that the
total tax prior to the application of any tax credits shall not exceed
the highest rate of tax set forth in the tax table in subsection (a) of
this section multiplied by the taxpayer's taxable income.

(C) This paragraph shall only apply to taxable years beginning after
two thousand two and before two thousand six.
