2008 Rule Review

Pursuant to section 207 of the State Administrative Procedure Act (SAPA) the Department of Taxation and Finance must review all rules, with certain exceptions, adopted on or after January 1, 1997, after five years, and, thereafter, at five year intervals.  In 2008, the Department must review rules that were adopted during 2003 and 1998 to determine whether these rules should be retained as written or modified.  Accordingly, the Department intends to review the following rules during 2008, and invites written comments on the continuation or modification of these rules in order to assist the Department in the required review.  We will consider comments that are received by February 19, 2008. 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 Part 2400 (Action for Failure to Release a Lien)

    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). Filed February 25, 1998; effective January 1, 1998 and applicable to damages arising on or after January 1, 1998 (permanent adoption). Need: This rule implemented provisions of Chapter 577 of the Laws of 1997 and provides taxpayers with guidance on administrative review of a "notice of failure to release a lien". The rule also provides for the type of bond or other security which is acceptable to effectuate a release of lien. This rule was previously reviewed as part of the Department's 2002 Rule Review published in the State Register on January 2, 2002 (based on the emergency adoption), and part of the Department's 2007 Rule Review published in the State Register on January 3, 2007.

We are reviewing this rule again in 2008 because the rule was permanently adopted in 1998 and is more appropriately reviewed based on the date of the permanent adoption. Legal Basis: Tax Law, sections 171, subd. First; and 3032(a) and (d), and section 56(j) of Chapter 577 of the Laws of 1997.
