BILL NUMBER: S1525

TITLE OF BILL :
An act to amend the real property tax law, in relation to authorizing
certain exemptions from school district real property for veterans


PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL :
This bill would eliminate the "School Tax Add Back" provision in the
Veteran's property tax exemption program by local option.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS :
Amends subdivision 2 of section 458-a of the real property tax law,
subparagraph (i) as added by chapter 525 of the laws of 1984 and
subparagraph (ii) as amended by chapter 256 of the laws of 2005.

JUSTIFICATION :
Currently, New York State property tax laws provide partial property
tax exemptions to qualified veterans of the United States Military.
Unfortunately, this exemption is not applicable to school taxes. As a
result, veterans receiving this benefit must pay back the school tax
portion which can be as much as four hundred dollars for an average
single family homeowner. Given the incredible sacrifices made by our
military personnel, it is only fitting that we extend the veteran's
property tax credits to school taxes.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY :
S.7168-B of 2006 Reported to Calendar
S.2171 of 2007-2008 - Advanced to Third Reading

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS :
To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE :
This act shall take effect immediately.
