New York Agriculture & Markets Law
Promulgation of Rules and Regulations
The commissioner of taxation and finance and the commissioner are each empowered to promulgate such rules and regulations and to prescribe such forms as each shall deem necessary to effectuate the purposes of this article. Where a document or any other paper or information is required, by such rules and regulations, or by any provision of this article, to be filed with, or by, a county clerk or any other local official, such clerk or other local official may file such document, paper, or information as he or she deems proper, but shall also file or record it in any manner directed by the commissioner of taxation and finance, by rule or regulation. In promulgating such a rule or regulation, such commissioner shall consider, among any other relevant factors, the need for security of land titles, the requirement that purchasers of land know of all potential tax and penalty liabilities, and the desirability that the searching of titles not be further complicated by the establishment of new sets of record books.
