Developers of residential rental properties who cannot commence construction of their projects on or before December 31, 2015 (thus vesting under the Current 421-a Statute, i.e., NYS RPTL
Section 421-a(1) et seq.) do not yet know whether the Future 421-a Statute will take effect, whether their projects can meet the increased affordability requirements (i.e., 25% or 30% of all rental units must be affordable) and other eligibility requirements of the Future 421-a Statute and still make a reasonable return on investment, and whether the Future 421-a Statute will come with an unaffordable construction wage requirement.
If the reassessment plan is not adhered to and the town falls outside the scope of reassessment, the town might be required to pay back the state aid (RPTL section 1573).
[Reassessment means] an assessing unit may revise its assessments as provided for in Real Property Tax Law (RPTL) to maintain uniformity and/or level of assessment, using means other than a lull reappraisal ...

On the one hand, Judge Smith disagrees with the majority's interpretation because it "creates a loophole in section 727 that the Legislature did not intend and that will undermine the purpose of the statute." (41) Reading RPTL section 1573 completely, Judge Smith finds that it reveals another aid provision--which is tri-annual rather than annual--that more closely resembles the exception in RPTL section 727.
RPTL has signed the agreements through its two SPVs for the projects under the Western Region System Strengthening Scheme-II (WRSSS-II).

Focus group data and the RPTL

RPTL merged nine group companies with itself (effective from April 1, 2008 onwards), in order to consolidate its logistics, engineering, and construction-related services businesses.
The merger has reduced the proportion of revenues RPTL derives from RIL under the throughput agreement with RIL; nevertheless, profitability and cash flows from these throughput agreements continue to form a significant proportion of the merged entity's profitability and cash flows.
