BILL NUMBER:S2785

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the real property tax law, in relation
to the real property tax exemption for cold war veterans

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: To clarify the term "active duty" to
include duty of reservists called up during wartime regardless of time
period, other than active duty for training.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section 1 amends paragraph c of subdivision 1 of section 458-b of the
real property tax law by defining "active duty" as full-time duty in the
United States armed forces, including duty of reservists called up
during wartime regardless of the period of time, other than active duty
for training.

Section 2 sets the effective date on the one hundred twentieth day after
it becomes a law. Effective immediately, the addition, amendment and/or
repeal of any rule or regulation necessary for the implementation of
this act on its effective date is authorized to be made on or before
such date.

JUSTIFICATION: Currently the term "active duty" defined in the Real
Property Tax Law, only grants exemption to those veterans who have who
served full-time duty in the United States Armed Forces. However, the
definition does not encompass the service of reserves who have been
called up temporarily during wartime. This bill would adopt a definition
of "active duty" in the Real Property Tax Law that would include reser-
vists who were called on during the time of war even if that time was
not prolonged, and thereby authorizing them to receive a real property
tax exemption.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 5.7148 (2012)

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None to the State.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect on the one hundred twentieth
day.
