2002 Regulatory Agenda

Pursuant to Chapter 262 of the Laws of 1996, the State Administrative Procedure Act (SAPA) was amended to add section 207 under which the Department of Taxation and Finance must review all regulations adopted on or after January 1, 1997, after five years, and, thereafter, at five year intervals. In 2002, the Department must review regulations that were adopted during 1997 to determine whether these regulations should be retained as written or modified. Accordingly, the Department intends to review the following regulations during 2002, and invites written comments on the continuation or modification of these regulations in order to assist the Department in the required review. We will consider comments that are received by February 19, 2002. Any questions concerning the items listed in this rule review or comments regarding the continuation of the rules being reviewed should be referred to: Office of Counsel, Department of Taxation and Finance, W.A. Harriman Campus, Building 9, Room 200, Albany, New York 12227. Telephone: (518) 530-4153, Email address: tax.regulations@tax.ny.gov.
