By Council Member Ferreras-Copeland

 

                     Whereas, Pursuant to Section 11-224.1 of the Administrative Code of the City of New York the Banking Commission is required to recommend to the City Council, not later than the 13th day of May of each year, the proposed interest rate to be charged for non-payment of taxes on properties with an assessed value of not more than $250,000, or not more than $250,000 per residential unit for cooperative apartments; and

                     Whereas, The Banking Commission is required to propose a rate at least equal to the prevailing interest rate charged for commercial loans extended to prime borrowers by commercial banks operating in the City (the “Prime Rate”); and

                     Whereas, The Banking Commission notes that as of May 10, 2016, the Prime Rate stands at three and one-half percent as published by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System; and

Whereas, By letter dated May 11, 2016, the Banking Commission recommended to the Council an interest rate of 7.5 percent per annum for Fiscal Year 2017 to be charged for the non-payment of taxes on properties where the assessed value on a parcel is not more than $250,000, or not more than $250,000 per residential unit for cooperative apartments; and

Whereas, The Council determines that an interest rate of 6 percent per annum for Fiscal Year 2017 should be charged for the non-payment of taxes on properties where the assessed value on a parcel is not more than $250,000, or not more than $250,000 per residential unit for cooperative apartments; now, therefore, be it

                     Resolved, That the Council of the City of New York establishes that the interest rate be 6 percent per annum for Fiscal Year 2017 for non-payment of taxes on properties with an assessed value of not more than $250,000, or not more than $250,000 per residential unit for cooperative apartments.
