1107. Temporary municipal assistance sales and compensating use taxes for cities of one million or more. (a) General. On the first day of the first month following the month in which a municipal assistance corporation is created under article ten of the public authorities law for a city of one million or more, in addition to the taxes imposed by sections eleven hundred five and eleven hundred ten, there is hereby imposed on such date, within the territorial limits of such city, and there shall be paid, additional taxes, at the rate of four percent, which except as provided in subdivision (b) of this section, shall be identical to the taxes imposed by sections eleven hundred five and eleven hundred ten. Such sections and the other sections of this article, including the definition and exemption provisions, shall apply for purposes of the taxes imposed by this section in the same manner and with the same force and effect as if the language of those sections had been incorporated in full into this section and had expressly referred to the taxes imposed by this section.
(b) Exceptions. (1) The exemptions provided for in subdivision (c) of section eleven hundred fifteen shall not apply to fuel, gas, electricity, refrigeration and steam, and gas, electric, refrigeration and steam service of whatever nature for use or consumption directly and exclusively in the production of gas, electricity, refrigeration or steam. (2) The transitional provisions contained in section eleven hundred six shall not apply to the taxes imposed by this section. (3) Where a sale of tangible personal property or services, including an agreement therefor, is made in a city in which the taxes imposed by subdivision (a) of this section apply, but the property sold, the property upon which the services were performed or such service is or will be delivered to the purchaser elsewhere, such sale will not be subject to taxes imposed by such subdivision (a). However, if delivery occurs or will occur in any city where the tax imposed by such subdivision (a) applies, a vendor will be required to collect from the purchaser the sales or compensating use taxes imposed by this section. For the purposes of this section delivery shall be deemed to include transfer of possession to the purchaser and the receiving of the property or of the service by the purchaser. (4) The provisions of section twelve hundred fourteen shall be applicable to this section, but any reference in that section to a local sales or use tax imposed by a city shall mean the additional taxes imposed by subdivision (a) hereof. (5) Where a retail sales tax or a compensating use tax was legally due and paid to any municipal corporation in this state, without any right to a refund or credit thereof, with respect to the sale or use of tangible personal property or any of the services subject to sales or compensating use tax, if the use of such property or services is then subject to the compensating use tax imposed by this section and such tax is at a higher rate than the rate of tax imposed by such municipal corporation, the tax imposed by this section shall also apply but only to the extent of the difference in such rates. (6) For purposes of this section, for periods of continuous occupancy first commencing after June third, nineteen hundred eighty, the term "permanent resident" means any occupant of any room or rooms in a hotel for at least one hundred eighty consecutive days shall be considered a permanent resident with regard to the period of such occupancy. For purposes of this subdivision, a payment to the tax commission of a tax imposed by a municipal corporation shall be deemed a payment to such municipal corporation. (7) The provision for a refund or credit contained in clause six of subdivision (a) of section eleven hundred nineteen shall not apply. (8) The tax imposed by subdivision (a) of this section shall not be imposed on: (i) receipts from interior cleaning and maintenance services performed on a regular contractual basis for a term of not less than thirty days subject to tax under paragraph five of subdivision (c) of section eleven hundred five other than window cleaning, rodent and pest control and trash removal from buildings or receipts from the services described in paragraph eight of subdivision (c) of section eleven hundred five to the extent a tax is imposed on such services by a city with a population of one million or more pursuant to the authority of subdivision (f) of section twelve hundred twelve-A of this chapter and (ii) receipts from the services described in paragraph six or seven of subdivision (c) of section eleven hundred five. (9) Except as otherwise provided by law, the exemption provided for in paragraph thirty of subdivision (a) of section eleven hundred fifteen relating to clothing and footwear shall not apply. (10) The exemptions provided for in paragraph forty-one of subdivision (a) of section eleven hundred fifteen of this article shall not apply. (11) Notwithstanding any provision of law to the contrary, clothing and footwear and any item used or consumed to make or repair such clothing and which becomes a physical component part of such clothing shall be exempt from the taxes imposed by this section.
(c) Tax on sale of service of parking, garaging or storing of motor vehicles. On the first day of the first month following the month in which a municipal assistance corporation is created under article ten of the public authorities law for a city of one million or more, in addition to the taxes imposed by sections eleven hundred five, eleven hundred ten and subdivision (a) of this section, there is hereby imposed on such date, within the territorial limits of such city, and there shall be paid, additional taxes at the rate of six percent on receipts from every sale of the service of providing parking, garaging or storing for motor vehicles by persons operating a garage (other than a garage which is part of premises occupied solely as a private one or two family dwelling), parking lot or other place of business engaged in providing parking, garaging or storing of motor vehicles provided, however, that this subdivision shall not apply to such facilities owned and operated by such city or an agency or instrumentality of such city or a public corporation the majority of whose members are appointed by the chief executive officer of such city or the legislative body of such city or both of them; provided, however, that receipts for such services paid to a homeowner's association by its members or receipts paid by members of a homeowner's association to a person leasing the parking facility from the homeowner's association shall not be subject to the tax imposed by this subdivision. For purposes of this subdivision, a homeowner's association is an association (including a cooperative housing or apartment corporation) (i) the membership of which is comprised exclusively of owners or residents of residential dwelling units, including owners of units in a condominium, and including shareholders in a cooperative housing or apartment corporation, where such units are located in a defined geographical area such as a housing development or subdivision; and (ii) which owns or operates a garage, parking lot or other place of business engaged in providing parking, garaging or storing for motor vehicles located in such area for use (whether or not exclusive) by such owners or residents. All provisions set forth in this article applicable to the taxes imposed under section eleven hundred five, including the definition and exemption provisions of this article, shall apply with respect to a tax imposed under this subdivision, except as to rate and except as otherwise provided herein. The transitional provisions contained in section eleven hundred six shall not apply to the taxes imposed by this section.
(d) Termination of taxes. At the later of: (1) the end of the last day of the month in which all the notes and bonds of such municipal assistance corporation shall have been fully paid and discharged, together with interest thereon and interest on unpaid installments of interest, or (2) July first, two thousand eight, the taxes imposed by this section shall terminate. Despite such termination, the provisions of this section and any regulations promulgated thereunder, including the provisions with respect to assessment, payment, termination, collection and refund of such taxes, penalties and interest, the requirements for filing returns, preservation of records and disposition of revenue shall continue in full force and effect with respect to all such taxes accrued up to the effective date of such termination.
