NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A8643A
 
SPONSOR: Tedisco (MS)
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the tax law, in relation to establish- ing tax credits for state and county sales tax paid by victims of trop- ical storms Irene and Lee   PURPOSE: Establishes a credit against income tax for residents and business owners who incurred damage to property as a result of Tropical Storms Irene and Lee.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1: Amends606 of the tax law by adding new subsection (tt) stat- ing that residential victims of Tropical Storms Irene and Lee, residents residing in the disaster areas, are entitled to a credit against their income taxes for 2011 and 2012. The amount of credit shall be equal to the sales tax paid for expenses in replacing appliances, furniture, building materials, moving expenses and storage costs. Section 2: Amends 5 210 of the tax law by adding a new subsection 44 stating that business owners who are victims of Tropical Storms Irene in the disaster areas are entitled to a credit against their income taxes for 2011 and 2012. The amount of credit shall be equal to the sales tax paid for the expenses in replacing appliances, furniture, building mate- rials, moving expenses and storage costs. Section 3: Amends Subparagraph (B) of paragraph 1 or subsection (i) of section 606 adding a new clause, clause (xxxiii)to allow tax code to be changed to establish the Tropical Storms Irene and Lee tax credit. Section 4: Ads additional section to the tax law, section 1207, allowing Counties affected by the Tropical Storms to option into this program at the County level. Section 5: Allows act to take effect immediately.   JUSTIFICATION: The devastating impact of Tropical Storms Irene and Lee on the lives of thousands of New Yorkers is heartbreaking. Too many people have had their lives torn apart losing their homes and busi- nesses. It's critical that our state continues to do everything in its power to help our neighbors rebuild. Eliminating sales taxes on the essentials for flood victims is one way New York State can help our fellow New Yorkers get back on their feet. The sales tax credits in this legislation are for moving expenses (rent- ing a truck, placing belongings in storage) and for replacing sump pumps, furnaces, refrigerators, washers, dryers, dehumidifiers, boilers, furniture, construction materials and clothing. Eligible recipients must reside in or own a business in any New York county declared a federal disaster area and must show proof that they are a flood victim by being certified by an insurer or state official. This bill shall establish a tax credit that will be applicable to an individuals' or business' 2011 and 2012 income taxes.   LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: This is a new bill.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: To be determined.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act will take effect immediately.
