Int 1038-2018 *Barry S. Grodenchik Proposed Int. No. 1038-AAmending the requirement that a statement of income and expense certified by a certified public accountant be provided in order for an income-producing property to be granted a reduction in real property assessment by the tax commission.IntroductionThis local law would increase the threshold for when an income-producing property is required to provide a certified statement of income and expense in order to receive an assessment reduction by the Tax Commission from an assessed value of $1 million to an assessed value of $5 million. The local law would also index the threshold to changes in the aggregate assessed value of all properties in tax classes two and four.Hearing Held by Committee  Action details Not available

Int 1143-2018 *Daniel Dromm  Proposed Int. No. 1143-AInstallment agreements for the payment of real property taxes, assessments and other charges.IntroductionCurrently, when property owner owes property tax arrears they may enter into an installment agreement with the Department of Finance to pay off the debt over a period of up to ten years with a zero dollar down payment. The installment amounts are then calculated based on the amount owed, interest rates, and pay-off period, but without regard for income or ability to pay. This local law would create three income-based installment agreements for eligible one- to three- family and condominium property owners where such property is the primary residence. All three installment agreements would be available only to property owners with combined incomes of $58,399 or less. The senior low-income installment agreement would allow property owners who are at least 65 years old to defer payment of a percentage of their tax arrears and prospective tax liability until the termination of the installment agreement upon expiration, death, or transfer. The fixed-length income-based installment agreement would allow property owners to pay off tax arrears and one year of prospective tax liability by paying installments based on a percentage of income until the debt is repaid. Finally, the extenuating circumstances income-based installment agreement would allow property owners with extenuating circumstances (such as loss of income due to unemployment, death, treatment of an illness, military service, or involuntary absence) to enter into a one-year installment agreement to pay off tax arrears and property taxes that accrue during that year by paying installments based on a percentage of income. A property that is the subject of one of the installment agreements would be exempt from the tax lien sale. The current ten-year, zero down payment plan would continue to exist alongside these new payment plan options.Hearing Held by Committee  Action details Not available
