§ 232-9 Notification of amount of tax required.

The real property tax bills prepared by the Receivers of Taxes of the 10 towns of Suffolk County shall set forth as a separate item on the front of the tax bill, apart from all other County taxes, the proportionate aggregate amount of tax due for all County funds which is attributable to the Metropolitan Commuter Transportation District mobility tax. The tax should be next to the heading entitled "New York State MTA tax."

§ 232-10 Explanation of tax.

The rear of the tax bill shall contain the following explanation of the Metropolitan Commuter Transportation District Mobility Tax:
"New York State law added Article 23 to the Tax Law, which established the Metropolitan Commuter Transportation District Mobility Tax. This tax will be administered by the New York State Tax Department, and the proceeds from this tax will be distributed to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority."

§ 232-11 Penalties for offenses.

A. 
In the event that any Receiver of Taxes of the 10 towns of Suffolk County willfully violates the provisions of this article by knowingly refusing to provide these separate tax bill lines, then the town in which such Receiver of Taxes is so employed shall be ineligible for receipt of any form of financial aid or assistance from the County of Suffolk (including sewer tax stabilization monies authorized by Local Law No. 35-1999, "A Charter Law Adopting Common Sense Tax Stabilization Plan for Sewers, Environmental Protection, and County Taxpayers"), any program of County assistance or compensation for the printing of such tax bills, and transfers of real property or personal property to a town within the County of Suffolk, for as long as such town is out of compliance with this article. Funding for the printing of real property tax bills shall not be paid unless the County Department of Law has first approved the actual formatting of tax bills by the pertinent town taxing jurisdiction as being in compliance with this article and only if the Legislative Office of Budget Review, in consultation with the Legislature's Counsel, certifies that tax bills are printed and/or mailed by the Receivers of Taxes in a format that is in compliance with this article and any subsequent amendments.
B. 
In the event that the Legislative Budget Review Office, in consultation with the Legislature's Counsel, certifies that tax bills are printed and/or mailed by any of the Receivers of Taxes of the 10 towns of Suffolk County in a format that does not comply with this article and any subsequent amendments, then the County Department of Audit and Control is hereby respectively authorized, empowered, and directed, under §§ C5-2I of the Suffolk County Charter, to decline to process for payment or actually pay any form of County financial assistance or County compensation that is 100% County-funded (including sewer tax stabilization monies authorized by Local Law No. 35-1999, "A Charter Law Adopting Common Sense Tax Stabilization Plan for Sewers, Environmental Protection, and County Taxpayers") to a town within the County of Suffolk, including, but not limited to, payments under § C4-6J of the Suffolk County Charter.
