§ 5. Subdivision 2 of section 181 of the tax law, as amended by chapter 61 of the laws of 1989, is amended to read as follows:

2. Annual maintenance fee. Every foreign corporation, except banking corporations as defined in paragraph one, two, three, four, five, six, seven or eight of subsection (a) of section fourteen hundred fifty-two of this chapter, fire, marine, casualty and life insurance companies, co-operative fraternal insurance companies and building and loan associations, which is authorized to do business in this state pursuant to article thirteen or article [fifteen-a] fifteen-A of the business corporation law shall pay an annual maintenance fee of three hundred dollars for each year or portion thereof for which it is so authorized, provided, however, such fee shall be reduced by twenty-five per centum if the period for which the fee is imposed consists of more than six months but not more than nine months and by fifty per centum if the period for which the fee is imposed consists of not more than six months. Each corporation required to pay such fee shall, for each of its calendar or fiscal years, or portion thereof, or if subject to any tax under this article, article [nine-a] nine-A or thirty-two of this chapter, for each of its calendar or fiscal years or taxable periods, or portion thereof, specified in this article, article [nine-a] nine-A or thirty-two of this chapter during which it was or continued to be authorized to do business in this state, pay such fee within two and one-half months after the close of such calendar or fiscal year or other period. Such fee shall continue to be paid annually thereafter until (A) such time that the corporation has, pursuant to section thirteen hundred ten or thirteen hundred eleven of the business corporation law, filed a certificate of surrender of authority or a certificate, order or decree, the filing of which has the same effect as the filing of a certificate of surrender of authority or (B) the time to annul the suspension of authority of the corporation to do business in this state provided for in section thirteen hundred nine of the business corporation law has expired or (C) the authority of the corporation to do business in this state has been annulled pursuant to the provisions of this section or of section thirteen hundred three or section fifteen hundred thirty-two of

the business corporation law, at any of which times such fee for the
year or portion thereof terminating at such time shall finally be paid.
There shall be allowed as a credit against the tax due under this arti-
cle (except the taxes and fees imposed by sections one hundred eighty
and one hundred eighty-one), article [nine-a, twenty-two] nine-A or
thirty-two of this chapter for any fiscal year, calendar year, or tax-
able period or portion thereof, the amount of the fee paid for the same
fiscal or calendar year or portion of a year or the tax for such year or
portion thereof, whichever is less. Any fee remaining unpaid within or
at the time required, shall be deemed assessed on the last day permitted
for the timely payment thereof, or in the case of a final payment, on
the day such fee was required to be paid. The commissioner of taxation
and finance shall have the same power to issue a warrant for such unpaid
fees or to enforce payment of the same as now exists with regard to
taxes imposed by this article, article [nine-a] nine-A or thirty-two of
this chapter which have been assessed but remain unpaid.
§ 6. Subparagraphs 2 and 3 of paragraph (a) of subdivision 3 of
section 189 of the tax law, as added by chapter 166 of the laws of 1991
and subparagraph 1 as amended by chapter 410 of the laws of 1991, are

1,

(1) If the gas services are delivered in this state to the gas importer by a public utility, then the public utility making such delivery of gas services shall be required to collect the tax imposed by this section pursuant to subparagraph two of this paragraph, and shall be collected monthly from such gas importer and such gas importer shall so pay the tax required to be collected to such public utility. The tax shall be due and owing and shall be required to be paid to the public utility within thirty days from the billing for the tax. The tax required to be collected by such public utility shall be separately stated, charged and shown on all invoices, receipts or other memoranda of price with respect to the transportation of such gas services. The amount of tax required to be collected shall be paid to such public utility required to collect it as trustee for and on account of the state. Every public utility required to collect the tax imposed by this section shall file a return quarterly with the commissioner of taxation and finance showing the amount of such tax required to be collected [during] for the quarterly period covered by the return. The returns required by this section to be filed quarterly shall be filed for quarterly periods ending on the last day of February, May, August and November of each year, and each return shall be filed within twenty days after the end of the quarterly period covered thereby along with payment of the tax required to be collected for such period. All of the provisions of subdivision one of section eleven hundred thirty-one, [subdivision] subdivisions (a) and (e) of section eleven hundred thirty-two, section eleven hundred thirty-three and section eleven hundred thirtyfive of this chapter shall apply to the tax imposed by this section with the same force and effect as if the language of those provisions has been incorporated in full in this section and had expressly referred the tax imposed by this section, with such modification as may be necessary in order to adapt the language of such provisions to the provisions of this section, provided, specifically, that the term "person required to collect tax" shall refer to a public utility required to collect tax under this section, the term "customer" shall refer to a gas importer from whom tax under this section is required to be collected by a public utility and the term "tax" shall refer to the tax imposed by this

to

section.

(2) Subject to the right of refund under subparagraph four of this paragraph, it shall be presumed for purposes of the payment of the tax imposed by this section by the method described in this paragraph that the consideration given or contracted to be given by a gas importer for gas services shall be equal to the annual average gas price per Mcf then in effect as provided in paragraph (e) of subdivision one of this section times the number of Mcf for gas services. Accordingly, the amount of the tax required to be collected by such public utility shall be determined by multiplying the number of Mcfs of gas services delivered by such utility during the taxable month times the annual average gas price for gas services transported and delivered to the gas importer during the same period times [three and three-quarters percent] the rate of tax prescribed in paragraph (b) of subdivision two of this section.

(3) The amount of tax required to be collected by such public utility shall be due and owing and shall be paid [over] quarterly to the commissioner along with and at the same time [(without regard to any extension of time) as payments of estimated tax on account of tax liability under sections one hundred eighty-six and one hundred eighty-six-a of this article required to be made by such public utility pursuant to section one hundred ninety-seven-b of this article] as the return required under this section. In addition to amounts required to be collected, there shall also be paid at the time of filing such return all amounts purportedly collected as tax imposed pursuant to this article, such amounts being described by the those* provisions of paragraph (iii) of subdivision (a) of section eleven hundred thirty-seven of this chapter but with such modification as is necessary to make those provisions applicable to the tax imposed by this section.

(13) if the added tax provided for in either (i) former subdivision two of section one hundred eighty-two of this chapter (relating to real estate corporations) or (ii) former subdivision one-a of section two hundred nine of this chapter (relating to real estate corporations) has been imposed upon the taxpayer, any income which has been used in computing such tax.

§ 9. Subparagraph 2 of paragraph (h) of subdivision 9 of section 208 of the tax law, as amended by chapter 190 of the laws of 1990, is amended to read as follows:
