3/17/04 ST-810.6 2/04 The line instructions (under Specific instructions) on page 2 of Form ST-810.6 (2/04) have been revised to correct the names of the months being referenced.
3/16/04 ST-810.8 2/04 The front page of Form ST-810.8 (2/04) has been revised to correct the jurisdiction code for Orange County from OR 3363 to OR 3300.
2/26/04 IT-203 and Instructions 2003 The Service Members Civil Relief Act was signed into federal law on December 19, 2003. One provision of this act provides that military pay received by a nonresident, or received by a part-year resident during the part-year resident’s nonresident period, cannot be used in determining the amount of New York State tax the nonresident or part-year resident military member or the member’s spouse must pay. Since the federal legislation had not been enacted at the time the 2003 personal income tax forms and instructions were printed, the forms and instructions do not reflect the changes resulting from this legislation. For revised instructions, see Notice N-04-3.
2/10/04 IT-216-I 2003 There are line reference errors to federal forms in the first paragraph of the instructions for line 11 on page 3 of Form IT-216-I, Instructions for Form IT-216 Claim for Child and Dependent Care Credit. The first paragraph in the line 11 instructions should read as follows (the changes are boldfaced):

This is your eligible federal child and dependent care credit. If you claimed the child and dependent care credit on your federal return, the amount shown on Form IT-216, line 11, should be the same as the amount shown on federal Form 2441, line 9, or federal Form 1040A, Schedule 2, line 9 before any federal limitation.

1/16/04 IT-2105.9-I 2003 There is a line reference error on page 7 of the 2003 Form IT-2105.9-I, Instructions for Form IT-2105.9, Underpayment of Estimated Tax by Individuals and Fiduciaries. The error only affects taxpayers who use the annualized income installment method to compute their underpayment penalty. For revised instructions, see Notice N-04-2.
1/9/04 IT-201-P City of NY Tax Table (page 90) 2003 City of New York residents only:

There is an error in the printed New York State income tax packets (IT-201-P) that were mailed directly to New York taxpayers. The error affects only city of New York residents and is contained only in those tax packets received in the mail.

If you received a Resident Income Tax Return packet (IT-201-P) in the mail, there is a tax computation bracket error on page 90 of the 2003 City of New York Tax Table.

Under the last section titled $65,000 or more** use schedule below, in the area for Married filing jointly, the second tax computation bracket (more than 90,000) is incomplete and another new third bracket (more than 150,000) must be added.

The revised second and new third brackets should read ...
   90,000    150,000 $3,071 plus 3.648% (.03648)
       of amount over $90,000
     
  150,000 ....................... $5,260 plus 4.25% (.0425)
       of amount over $150,000
Please note that this error is only in the printed IT-201-P tax packets that were mailed directly to taxpayers. If you picked up a Resident Income Tax Return instructions booklet (IT-201-I) at your local bank, library, post office, federal office building, or any NY State district tax office, or if you access the instructions for Form IT-201on our Tax Department Web site, use our Publication 352 or our Pub 352-CD ROM, or if you use any of the year 2003 software tax preparation products on the market, the correct tax computation brackets appear in the City of New York Tax Table.
1/5/04 IT-201-I
(Instructions for Form IT-201) booklet and IT-201-P packet: Page 35, third column, last paragraph, "New for 2003"
2003 Sales or use tax reference:

There is an error in the instructions for Form IT-201 on page 35 that relates to the new line 56 "Sales or use tax" calculation that begins on the following page 36. The error is located only in the printed instruction booklets for Form IT-201 (Form IT-201-I) and the printed income tax packets (Form IT-201-P) that are mailed directly to some New York State taxpayers.

The "New for 2003" paragraph in the lower right corner of page 35 relating to the new line 56 sales or use tax calculation currently tells taxpayers:

" ...If you do not owe any sales or use tax, *skip line 56 and go directly to the instructions for line 57, ..."

Because a sales or use tax dollar amount or "0" must be entered in the data-entry field for new line 56, line 56 cannot be skipped or left blank. The paragraph should read:

" ...If you do not owe any sales or use tax, *you must enter "0" on line 56 and then go directly to the instructions for line 57, ..."

Please note: Only the printed IT-201-I instruction booklets and IT-201-P mailing packets contain the incorrect paragraph. If you access the instructions for Form IT-201(Form IT-201-I) on our Tax Department Web site or use our Publication 352 or our Pub 352-CD ROM, the "New for 2003" paragraph in the lower right corner of page 35 is correct.
