(b) In addition to the taxes payable pursuant to the table above, the owner shall pay in each tax year in which such full or partial exemption is in effect, real property taxes and assessments as follows:
(i) real property taxes on the assessed valuation of such land and any improvements thereon in effect during the tax year preceding the commencement of such construction without regard to any exemption or abatement from real property taxation in effect prior to such construction which real property taxes shall be calculated on the tax rate in effect at the time such taxes are due; and
(ii) all assessments for local improvements.
(c) Such multiple dwellings shall be eligible for exemption from taxation pursuant to this section only if:
(i) exemption from taxes is not availed of concurrently under any other law and that on or after July first, nineteen hundred seventy-six no preliminary certificate of eligibility or certificate of eligibility issued under this section may be rescinded by the local housing agency to avail the property of the benefits of tax exemption or tax abatement for rehabilitation or new construction under the provisions of any other law, but that prior to July first, nineteen hundred seventy-six the local housing agency may rescind such certificates to avail the property of the benefits of tax exemption or tax abatement under the provisions of any other law;
(ii) construction is commenced after January first, nineteen hundred seventy-five and before December twenty-eighth, two thousand ten provided, however, that such commencement period shall not apply to multiple dwellings eligible for benefits under subparagraph (iv) of paragraph (a) of this subdivision;
(iii) in the event that, immediately prior to commencement of new construction, such land was improved with a residential building or buildings that have since been substantially demolished, and the new building or buildings contain more than twenty dwelling units, then such new construction shall contain at least five dwelling units for each class A dwelling unit in existence immediately prior to the demolition preceding construction; and

(d) As of July first, nineteen hundred seventy-five, if the aggregate floor area of commercial, community facility and accessory use space exceeds twelve per cent of the aggregate floor area, as defined herein, of any building granted tax exemption pursuant to this section on or subsequent to July first, nineteen hundred seventy-one, tax exemption shall be reduced by an amount equal to the per cent of the aggregate floor area by which the aggregate floor area of commercial, community facility and accessory use space exceeds twelve per cent of the aggregate floor area of the building provided, however, that accessory use space shall not include accessory parking located not more than twenty-three feet above the curb level and provided, further, that whenever a building containing two or more separately assessed parcels of real property has commercial, community facility and accessory use space in excess of such twelve percent, the tax arising out of the reduction in exemption for such excess space shall not be apportioned pro rata among all of the separately assessed parcels in the building but shall be applied first to those separately assessed parcels which are unrelated to the residential use of the building; and only after such unrelated parcels are fully taxable shall the remainder of such tax be apportioned pro rata among the remaining separately assessed parcels and provided further, that no such exemption for commercial, community facility and accessory use space shall be applicable prior to July first, nineteen hundred seventy-five.

Rosen Law LLC
(e) Any provision of this section to the contrary notwithstanding, the following properties shall not be eligible for exemption:
(i) any multiple dwelling located in any geographical area where the exemption is eliminated by regulations promulgated by the local housing agency, pursuant to subdivision three of this section, upon a finding by the local housing agency that the need for the tax incentive in such area has been significantly reduced, or that an area should be preserved for mainly non-residential purposes in accordance with local municipal policy; unless construction actually commenced prior to January first, nineteen hundred eighty-two; provided that the local housing agency shall not reduce or eliminate such exemption with respect to multiple dwellings of less than four stories in height, as stories are defined in the multiple dwelling law, except in areas to be preserved for mainly non-residential purposes provided further that no regulation regarding such geographical limitation shall eliminate benefits available pursuant to this section for construction which is commenced within two years from the effective date of such regulation, except in areas to be preserved for mainly non-residential purposes;
(ii) any land which is mapped as a public park, provided, however, that this exclusion from eligibility for exemption shall not apply to any land which has been mapped as a public park but which, for a period of ten years or more after the date of such mapping, has not been acquired by the state or the city in which such land is located and with respect to which land the local department of parks and recreation has determined that such land is not required for public park purposes, and that such department has no intention of acquiring such land and that no funds have been allocated for such purpose;
(iii) any land which has been utilized for ten or more consecutive years prior to October first, nineteen hundred seventy-one as a "private park" as hereinafter defined. A private park is a privately owned zoning lot in a densely developed area having a minimum size of four thousand square feet, free of all developments and containing only trees, grass, benches, walkways and passive recreational facilities including structures incidental thereto which has been used and maintained during said period for such passive recreational activity by the general public without charge with the consent and participation of the owner thereof; where construction is commenced after December thirty-first, nineteen hundred seventy-two, eligibility shall be determined on the basis of the condition of the land on the first day of October, nineteen hundred seventy-one.
(f) Notwithstanding the provisions of any local law for the stabilization of rents in multiple dwellings or the emergency tenant protection act of nineteen seventy-four, the rents of a unit shall be fully subject to control under such local law or such act, unless exempt under such local law or such act from control by reason of the cooperative or condominium status of the unit, for the entire period during which the property is receiving tax benefits pursuant to this section for the period any such applicable law or act is in effect, whichever is shorter. Thereafter, such rents shall continue to be subject to such control to the same extent and in the same manner as if this section had never applied thereto, except that such rents shall be decontrolled if:
(i) with respect to units subject to the provisions of this section on the effective date of this subparagraph such a unit becomes vacant after the expiration of such ten year period or applicable law or act; provided, however, that such units may be decontrolled pursuant to the rent regulation reform act of 1993 and provided further that the rent shall not be decontrolled for a unit which the commissioner of housing and community renewal or a court of competent jurisdiction finds became vacant because the landlord or any person acting on his behalf engaged in any course of conduct, including but not limited to, interruption or discontinuance of essential services which interfered with or disturbed or was intended to interfere with or disturb the comfort, repose, peace or quiet of the tenant in his use or occupancy of such unit, and, that upon such finding in addition to being subject to any other penalties or remedies permitted by law, the landlord of such unit shall be barred from collecting rent for such unit in excess of that charged to the tenant who vacated such unit until restoration of possession of such tenant, if the tenant so desires, in which case the rent of such tenant shall be established as if such tenant had not vacated such unit, or compliance with such other remedy, including, but not limited to, all remedies provided for by the emergency tenant protection act of nineteen seventy-four for rent overcharge or failure to comply with any order of the commissioner of housing and community renewal, as shall be determined by the commissioner of housing and community renewal to be appropriate; provided, however, that if a tenant fails to accept any such offer of restoration of possession, such unit shall return to rent stabilization at the previously regulated rent; or
(ii) with respect to units which become subject to the provisions of this section after the effective date of this subparagraph, such tax benefit period as provided in the opening paragraph of this paragraph or applicable law or act shall have expired and either each lease and renewal thereof for such unit for the tenant in residence at the time of such decontrol has included a notice in at least twelve point type informing such tenant that the unit shall become subject to such decontrol upon the expiration of such tax benefit period as provided in the opening paragraph of this paragraph or applicable law or act and states the approximate date on which such tax benefit period as provided in the opening paragraph of this paragraph is scheduled to expire; or such unit becomes vacant as provided under subparagraph (i) of this paragraph.
(g) For purposes of this section construction shall be deemed "commenced" when excavation or alteration has begun in good faith on the basis of approved construction plans.
Rosen Law LLC
(h) Anything in this section to the contrary notwithstanding, with regard to a project consisting of two or more multiple dwellings constructed on a contiguous site and containing an aggregate of not less than one thousand dwelling units, each of such multiple dwellings shall be entitled to the exemption set forth herein provided construction of such project be commenced before January first, nineteen hundred seventy-eight and completed no later than a date certain fixed by the local housing agency not to exceed four years from the date of commencement of construction of such project.
Rosen Law LLC
(i) Authority of city to enact local law. Except as otherwise specified in this section, a city to which this section is applicable may enact a local law to restrict, limit or condition the eligibility, scope or amount of the benefits under this section in any manner provided that such local law may not grant benefits beyond those provided in this section and provided further that in the city of New York such local law shall not take effect sooner than one year after it is enacted. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the provisions of any local law shall not alter the effect of subdivisions twelve, thirteen, fourteen, and fifteen of this section as they apply on the effective date of such subdivisions, notwithstanding any subsequent amendments to the provisions of law referred to in such subdivisions.
Rosen Law LLC
3. Application forms for exemption under this section shall be filed with the assessors between February first and March fifteenth and, based on the certification of the local housing agency as herein provided, the assessors shall certify to the collecting officer the amount of taxes to be abated. If there be in a city of one million population or more a department of housing preservation and development, the term "housing agency" shall mean only such department of housing preservation and development. No such application shall be accepted by the assessors unless accompanied by a certificate of the local housing agency certifying the applicant's eligibility pursuant to subdivisions two and four of this section. No such certification of eligibility shall be issued by the local housing agency until such agency determines the initial adjusted monthly rent to be paid by tenants residing in rental dwelling units contained within the multiple dwelling and the comparative adjusted monthly rent that would have to be paid by such tenants if no tax exemption were applicable as provided by this section. The initial adjusted monthly rent will be certified by the local housing agency as the first rent for the subject dwelling units. A copy of such certification with respect to such units shall be attached by the applicant to the first effective lease or occupancy agreement. The initial adjusted monthly rent shall reflect the full tax exemption benefits as approved by the agency.
Rosen Law LLC
The agency shall determine the amount of the initial adjusted monthly rent as follows: (i) The total project cost shall be determined by adding the following items:
  1. Land acquisition cost or purchase price, if purchased within two years prior to the date on which construction or alteration is commenced; or land acquisition cost or purchase price or an appraisal prepared by a qualified independent appraiser, in such form as is acceptable to the agency, if purchased more than two years prior to such date. Land acquisition cost or purchase price, where used, shall be certified to by an independent certified public accountant;
  2. Costs incurred in the process of preparing the site for construction, including but not limited to operating losses, relocation expenses, demolition expenses and carrying charges, such costs to be certified by an independent certified public accountant to a date not more than ninety days prior to the filing of an application for certification of eligibility and the balance of such costs to be estimated;
  3. Construction costs for constructing or rehabilitating the multiple dwelling as determined by the agency in accordance with subdivision four of this section, plus such amount, if any, representing unique and special costs as may be allowed by the agency for a particular multiple dwelling;
  4. An allowance for estimated off-site costs, including but not limited to architects, engineers and legal fees, interest and taxes during construction, insurance, title and mortgage fees, as determined by the agency in accordance with subdivision four of this section, and
  5. such other amounts as are ordinarily and customarily incurred in connection with the construction or rehabilitation of a multiple dwelling, as determined by the agency in accordance with subdivision four of this section.
(ii) The total expenses of the multiple dwelling shall be determined by adding the following items:
  1. The amount that the agency determines to be the reasonable annual costs for the continuing maintenance and operation of the multiple dwelling in accordance with subdivision four of this section;
  2. The amount that the agency determines to be an appropriate annual provision for vacancies, contingency reserves and management fees in accordance with subdivision four of this section.
  3. projected real property taxes to be levied on the multiple dwelling and the land on which it is situated at the time of estimated initial occupancy;
  4. Fourteen (14) per cent of the total project cost, as hereinabove defined, which amount will include all expenses for debt service; and
  5. Deducting from said total the estimated annual income to be derived from any commercial, community facility or accessory use space in the building.
(iii) The total expenses shall be divided by the room count to provide the adjusted monthly rent per room per month.
Rosen Law LLC
(iv) The adjusted monthly rent per room per month shall be multiplied by the room count of each rental dwelling unit to provide the initial adjusted monthly rent for such dwelling unit. The agency may allow adjustments in the initial adjusted monthly rent for any particular dwelling units provided that the total of the initial adjusted monthly rents for all of the rental dwelling units in a multiple dwelling shall not exceed the total expenses of such multiple dwelling.
Rosen Law LLC
The agency shall determine the estimated comparative adjusted monthly rent that would have to be paid if no tax exemption were applicable as provided by this section by adding to the adjusted monthly rent for each dwelling unit as hereinabove computed an amount equal to (a) the difference between the projected real property taxes which would be levied on the multiple dwelling and the land on which it is situated at the time estimated initial occupancy if no tax abatement were applicable as provided by this section and the projected real property taxes hereinabove utilized in connection with the computation of total expenses; (b) divided by the room count of the building as per this section; and (c) multiplied by the applicants approved room count of each such dwelling unit.
Rosen Law LLC
The local housing agency may promulgate rules and regulations to carry out the provisions of this section, not inconsistent with the provisions hereof, and may require a reasonable filing fee in an amount provided by such rules and regulations.
Rosen Law LLC
4.
  1. After a public hearing the housing agency shall promulgate annually to take effect as of January first of each year the amounts that it determines to be the reasonable amounts in such categories and classifications as may be established by the housing agency, for such items as are generally applicable to all developments and are required to be determined pursuant to subdivision three of this section, which amounts shall be filed with the city clerk and published in a publication of general circulation in the city or the city record, if any, upon adoption by the housing agency.
  2. The local housing agency may require a filing fee not to exceed the greater of (i) four-tenths of one percent of the total project cost, or (ii) if the building will be owned as a cooperative or condominium, four-tenths of one percent of the total project cost or four-tenths of one percent of the total project sell-out price stated in the last amendment to the offering plan accepted for filing by the attorney general of the state, at the option of the applicant. Such total project cost or total project sell-out price shall be determined pursuant to rules promulgated by the local housing agency. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the local housing agency may promulgate rules imposing an additional fee if an application, or any part thereof, or submission in connection therewith, is defective and such defect delays the processing of such application or causes the local housing agency to expend additional resources in the processing of such application.
  3. The local housing agency may rely on certification by an architect or engineer submitted by an applicant in connection with the filing of an application for benefits pursuant to this section. A false certification by such architect or engineer shall be deemed to be professional misconduct pursuant to section sixty-five hundred nine of the education law. Any licensee found guilty of such misconduct under the procedures prescribed in section sixty-five hundred ten of the education law shall be subject to the penalties prescribed in section sixty-five hundred eleven of such law, and shall thereafter be ineligible to submit a certification pursuant to this section.
5. An applicant for tax exemption under this section whose project contains more than twenty dwelling units shall notify the local community planning board for the area which is the subject of the application within ten days of submission of the application to the local housing agency. The local community planning board shall have a forty-five day period to file objections to the applicant's eligibility under subdivision two of this section, or to the applicant's failure to comply with the standards adopted by the agency in accordance with subdivision four of this section. The local community board may within such time in its own discretion hold a public hearing to determine whether or not any objections as to eligibility should be filed. In the event the local community board files such objections, the local housing agency shall make a determination and notify such board within forty-five days. When an applicant's project contains more than one hundred fifty dwelling units the local community board may within thirty days of receipt of an applicant's notification request the local housing agency to and the local housing agency shall hold a public hearing solely on the questions of the applicant's eligibility under subdivision two of this section or the applicant's failure to comply with the standards adopted by the agency pursuant to subdivision four of this section. The local housing agency shall hold this hearing and make its determination and notify such board within forty-five days.
