2003 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 2003, the Department must review regulations that were adopted during 1998 to determine whether these regulations should be retained as written or modified. Accordingly, the Department intends to review the following regulations during 2003, 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 22, 2003. 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.

  • 20 NYCRR Appendix 10-C (New York City Personal Income on Residents Withholding Tables and Other Methods)
     
    20 NYCRR Appendix 10-C (New York City Personal Income Tax On Residents Withholding Tables and Other Methods) Filed December 15, 1998; published effective 12/30/98. Need: These regulations repealed Appendix 10-C and enacted a new Appendix 10-C that provided City of New York withholding tables and other methods, applicable to wages and other compensation paid on and after January 1, 1999. The new tables and other methods reflected the expiration of the tax surcharge on residents of the City of New York. This rule made various editorial changes and reduced the rate of New York City personal income tax on residents to be withheld from supplemental wages. The new Appendix was enacted so that employers would withhold from employee wages amounts that are substantially equivalent to the amount of taxes reasonably estimated to be due for the taxable year. Appendix 10-C has been repealed and enacted four times since this 1998 action. Legal Basis: Tax Law, sections 171, subd. First; 671(a)(1); 671(b)(1); 697(a), 1309 (not subdivided) and 1312(a); General City Law, section 8-A of the Model Local Law contained in section 25-m and section 25-n(e); Administrative Code of the City of New York, sections 11-1771(a), 11-1771(b), 11-1797(a), 11-1909 (not subdivided) and 11-1943 (not subdivided).

  • 20 NYCRR Part 2400 (Action for Failure to Release a Lien)
     
    The regulation at 20 NYCRR Part 2400 (Action for Failure to Release a Lien) filed December 23, 1997; published January 7, 1998; effective January 1, 1998 (emergency adoption); and then filed February 25, 1998; effective January 1, 1998, and applicable to damages arising on or after January 1, 1998 (permanent adoption); is not included as part of the Department's 2003 Regulatory Agenda. Although this regulation was permanently adopted in 1998 (exactly as it was adopted as an emergency measure on December 23, 1997), the regulation was reviewed as part of the Department's 2002 Regulatory Agenda, published January 2, 2002. After the review, a notice was published in the State Register, on July 10, 2002, indicating the regulation would be continued without modification. Accordingly, the rule will not be reviewed again in 2003.
