The local laws and resolutions recorded on the following pages are provided as a public service by the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance. In providing information on these pages, the Tax Department attempts to be as accurate as possible. However, the department makes no claims, guarantees or promises about the accuracy, currency, or completeness of the information provided. The recorded local laws and resolutions are adopted and rescinded by local government entities, not the Tax Department or any other agency or department of New York State. Changes are made periodically to the local laws, resolutions, and other materials. Unless a copy of the relevant local law or resolution is provided by the local government, the Tax Department is not aware of such changes. Therefore, changes to local laws and resolutions may not be incorporated in materials displayed on this website on a timely basis. In no event shall the department be liable for any errors or omissions with respect to any information on this site. If you find any errors or omissions, we encourage you to submit them to our Support Team.
