        AN ACT to amend the real property tax law, in relation  to  tax  billing

          The  People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and Assem-
        bly, do enact as follows:

     1    Section 1. Section 518 of the real property tax  law,  as  amended  by
     2  chapter 145 of the laws of 1990, is amended to read as follows:
     3    §  518.  Change in tax billing address.  Where the assessor receives a
     4  report of a transfer occurring after the  taxable  status  date,  or  is
     5  otherwise  notified  of  a  change  in tax billing address, the assessor
     6  shall enter the new tax billing address on the data file, as  that  term
     7  is  defined in section fifteen hundred eighty-one of this chapter. Where
     8  no such data file exists, the assessor shall enter the new  tax  billing
     9  address on the assessment roll. If the assessor does not have custody of
    10  the assessment roll when such report is received, he or she shall report
    11  the  new  tax  billing  address  to the person having custody of the tax
    12  roll, which person shall enter the new tax billing address  on  the  tax
    13  roll.  Nothing contained herein shall be construed to authorize a change
    14  of the name of the owner included in the data file or appearing  on  the
    15  roll.  Where such "tax billing address" is a mortgage investing institu-
    16  tion  or  agent  thereof,  the assessor shall not be required to make an
    17  entry.
    18    § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
