§ 171-p. Costs or fees imposed by the United States or other states
for crediting tax overpayments against outstanding tax debts owed to the
state of New York. (1) For purposes of this section:

under, or pursuant to the authority of, the internal revenue code or the
laws of any state;

(b) "taxpayer" means any individual, corporation, partnership, limited

(2) The commissioner may implement procedures under which any cost or
fee imposed or charged by the United States or any state, with respect
to payment or remittance of a taxpayer's overpayment to satisfy a tax
debt of the taxpayer, must not be credited by the commissioner to
payment or satisfaction of the tax debt, must be deemed to be part of
the taxpayer's tax debt, and must be eligible for offset against the
taxpayer's overpayment to the extent permitted by law. The commissioner
may also implement procedures under which any cost or fee imposed or
charged by the United States or any other state, with respect to any

vendor payment as authorized by section one hundred seventy-one-t of
this article, must not be credited by the state of New York to payment
or satisfaction of the debt, must be deemed to be part of the taxpayer's
or person's debt, and must be eligible for offset against the taxpayer's
overpayment or the person's vendor payment to the extent permitted by
law.
