BILL NUMBER: A2201
 
SPONSOR: Rosenthal L
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the tax law, in relation to establishing a tax credit for personal property replacement as a result of bedbug infestation   PURPOSE: This bill offers a 15% tax credit towards the replacement of personal property destroyed by bedbugs up to $750.   SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section one amends section 606 of the tax law to add subsection jjj. Section two sets forth the effective date.   JUSTIFICATION: The recent bedbug epidemic has brought legitimate suffering to New York- ers statewide. Victims have contracted bedbugs from neighbors, hotel stays and a variety of other means. In addition to social stigma, the afflicted have experienced economic hardship as a result of the loss of furniture, bedding, clothing and other belongings that must be discarded during the extermination process. Bedbug infestations are not covered by most varieties of renters or homeowners insurance and this bill would offer a modest tax credit to assist affected New Yorkers.   LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2019-20: A.1000 - Referred to Ways and Means 2017-18: A383 - Referred to Ways and Means; S.2342 - Referred to Inves- tigations and Government Operations 2015-16: A.231 - Referred to Ways and Means; S.3041 - Referred to Inves- tigations and Government Operations 2013-14: A.692 -Referred to Ways and Means; S.511 - Referred to Inves- tigations and Government Operations 2011-12: A.1482 - Referred to Ways and Means   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: Undetermined.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This bill shall take effect immediately and shall apply to taxable years beginning on and after the first of January next succeeding the date on which it shall have become a law.
