Rule Reviews - Five-year rule review 2011

Select a year:


2011 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 2011, the Department must review rules that were adopted during 2001 and 2006 to determine whether these rules should be retained as written or modified. This rule review includes rules of the State Board of Real Property Services whose rule making functions were transferred to the Department by the Laws of 2010, chapter 56, Part W. Accordingly, the Department intends to review the following rules during 2011, 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 22, 2011. 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 530 (Amount to be Collected, formerly entitled Tax Rates) Filed June 12, 2001; published June 27, 2001; effective December 1, 2001. Need: This regulation was amended to repeal the tax rates and bracket schedules which indicated the amount of sales tax to be collected for various amounts of sales prices and tax rates, and replace them with standard methodology for rounding the amount of sales tax to be collected to the nearest penny. This rule was previously reviewed as part of the Department's 2006 Rule Review published in the State Register on January 4, 2006. As a result of that review of the 2001 rule, a Rule Review notice indicating that it would be continued without modification was published in the State Register on October 25, 2006. Subsequent to the 2006 statutory five-year review, amendments to update and simplify Part 530 of the Sales and Use Taxes Regulations by eliminating obsolete and unnecessary tax rates that are set by and pursuant to the Tax Law were adopted on February 14, 2007. (See TAF-47-06-00012-A; filed February 14, 2007; published March 7, 2007; effective March 7, 2007.) However, certain provisions of the 2001 rule were not amended in 2007 and, therefore, remain subject to review in 2011. Legal Basis: Tax Law sections 171, subd. First; 1132(b); 1142(1) and (8); and 1250 (not subdivided).

Part 2402 provides for the voluntary use of electronic records by taxpayers and prescribes general standards applicable to the retention of electronic records that ensure that taxpayers who exercise this option are complying with their responsibilities under the Tax Law and under other applicable laws that are administered by the Commissioner. This rule was previously reviewed as part of the Department's 2006 Rule Review published in the State Register on January 4, 2006. As a result of that review of the 2001 rule, changes to section 2402.1 of the regulations were adopted to reflect the renumbering of a citation to the Electronic Signatures and Records Act, and to update references to enabling state and federal legislation.
