Whereas, on May 9, 2012, the State Board of Real Property Services (the "SBRPS") certified the final state equalization rate, class ratios and class equalization rates for the City's Fiscal 2013 assessment rolls, required by Article 18 of the Real Property Tax Law; and
 
Whereas, Section 1803-a (1) of the Real Property Tax Law, requires the Council to compute and certify, to the SBRPS, for each tax levy, the base percentage, the current percentage and the current base proportion of each class of real property in the City subsequent to the date on which the SBRPS files with the Clerk of the Council a certification setting forth the final state equalization rate, class ratios and class equalization rates for the City's Fiscal 2013 assessment rolls, pursuant to Section 1212 of the Real Property Tax Law; and
 
Whereas, Section 1803-a(1)(c) of the Real Property Tax Law requires that if any increase in the current base proportion for any class of real property, as compared with the previous year's adjusted base proportion for such class of property shall exceed five percent, such excess over five percent must be shifted to any other class of property; and
 
       NOW, THEREFORE, be it resolved by The Council of The City of New York as follows:
 
Section 1.  Computation and Certification of Base Percentages, Current Base Percentages and Current Base Proportions for Fiscal 2013.  (a) The Council hereby computes and certifies the base percentage, the current percentage and the current base percentage for the City's Fiscal 2013 assessment rolls as shown on SBRPS Form RP-6700, attached hereto as Exhibit A and incorporated herein by reference (the "CBP Certificate").  
 
(b) The Clerk of the Council is hereby authorized and directed to execute the CBP Certificate and to file it with the SBRPS after the date on which the SBRPS filed with the Clerk of the Council a certification setting forth the final state equalization rate, class ratios and class equalization rates for the City's Fiscal 2013 assessment rolls, pursuant to Section 1212 of the Real Property Tax Law.
