A06829 Memo:

BILL NUMBER:A6829A

TITLE  OF BILL:  An act to amend the tax law, in relation to the imposi-
tion of an occupancy tax in the village of Harrison; and  providing  for
the repeal of such provisions upon expiration thereof

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:

To  authorize  the Village of Harrison to enact a room occupancy tax not
to exceed 3%.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

The tax law is amended to add a new section  1202-x,  to  authorize  the
town/village of Harrison to enact such a tax.

EXISTING LAW:;

Adds  a  new  section to New York State Tax Law, Article 29: Part 1, Sub
Part A, Section 1202-X.

JUSTIFICATION:

The village of Harrison seeks the authority to impose a  3%  daily  room
tax  on  any room in a hotel, motel, or similar place of public non-pro-
perty. This tax is intended  to  raise  revenues  to  support  municipal
expenses.  The  tax has been successful in the neighboring cities of New
Rochelle, Rye, and White Plains. Chapter 381 of the Laws of 2010  grants
similar  authority  to  the  Village of Rye Brook, which marks the first
time such authority was granted to a municipality other than a.city.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

01/04/12: REFERRED TO INVESTIGATIONS AND GOVERNMENT OPERATIONS
01/10/13 REFERRED TO INVESTIGATIONS AND GOVERNMENT OPERATIONS
04/10/13 AMEND AND RECOMMIT TO INVESTIGATIONS AND GOVERNMENT OPERATIONS.
04/10/13 PRINT NUMBER 2059A
01/08/14 REFERRED TO INVESTIGATIONS AND GOVERNMENT OPERATIONS

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

None to the state, but increased revenue for the Village of Harrison.

LOCAL FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

Increased revenue for the Village of Harrison.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect immediately and shall expire  and  be  deemed
repealed September 1, 2017.
