BILL NUMBER: S772

TITLE OF BILL :
An act to amend the tax law, in relation to providing a modification
reducing federal adjusted gross income in determining New York
adjusted gross income for personal income tax purposes for active
volunteer firefighters and active members of volunteer ambulance
companies


PURPOSE :
This bill provides a modification reducing federal gross income in
determining New York adjusted gross income for active volunteer
firefighters and volunteer ambulance members.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS :
Section 1: subsection (c) of section 612 if the Tax. Law is amended by
permitting an active volunteer firefighter or active member of an
ambulance company to deduct $1,500 from federal adjusted gross income
or if such taxpayer is an active member of both a volunteer fire
company and a volunteer ambulance company they may deduct $2,000 from
federal adjusted gross income. If such a modification reduces federal
adjusted gross income below zero, only the portion of such
modification that reduces federal adjusted gross income to zero may be
claimed.

EXISTING LAW :
None.

JUSTIFICATION :
Those who volunteer in our communities play a major role within
society. These individuals are dedicated to making their communities
better places to live. In recent years, however, there has been a
decline in those that volunteer for fire and ambulance companies.
Naturally, people are busier in today's hectic world and have less
time to take part in volunteer activities.

This bill would give some incentive for people who want to volunteer
in the fire and ambulance corporations within their communities. This
bill will also provide an incentive for people who are already
volunteering in the fire and ambulance corporations to continue
serving their communities.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY :
2007 - 2008 - Investigations, Government Operations.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS :
To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE :
This act shall take effect on the first day of January next succeeding
the date on which it shall have become a law and shall to taxable
years which begin on or after such date.
