BILL NUMBER:S2212A

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the real property tax law, in relation to increasing maximum
income eligibility levels for real property tax exemptions for seniors

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF THE BILL:
To increase the local option income levels for a senior citizen
partial exemption from real property taxes gradually, over a five
year period.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
This bill amends section 467 of the real property tax law, to allow an
increase at local option in the senior income levels eligible for
sliding scale partial tax exemptions, as follows:

On and after July 1, 2013, the largest partial exemption (45%) would
be the allowable income for the complete exemption plus $1,250, and
the smallest (5%) would be income plus $10,500.

On and after July 1, 2014, the largest partial exemption (45%) would
be the allowable income for the complete exemption plus $1,500, and
the smallest (5%) would be income plus $12,600.

On and after July 1, 2015, the largest partial exemption (45%) would
be the allowable income for the complete exemption plus $1,750, and
the smallest (5%) would be income plus $14,750.

On and after July 1, 2016, the largest partial exemption (45%) would
be the allowable income for the complete exemption plus $2,000, and
the smallest (5%) would be income plus $16,800.

JUSTIFICATION:
The full senior RPT exemption, of 50%, was amended last year to
gradually increase the schedule from what was then the current amount
of $25,000 to $29,000 by July 1, 2009. The partial exemption income
levels have not been changed since 1994 and 1995. The schedule in
this measure gradually increases the partial exemption, always at
local option, over a five year period, at percentage levels that are
even through the partial exemption schedule.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
S.2818A: 2007-08 - Referred to Aging, Passed Senate
S.2022: 2009-10 - Referred to Aging

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None to the state.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
