AN ACT to amend the real property tax law, in relation to tax  abatement
  for  rent-controlled  and  rent  regulated property occupied by senior
  citizens or persons with disabilities

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.  Paragraph g of subdivision 3 of section 467-b of the real
property tax law, as amended by section 1 of chapter 188 of the laws  of
2005, is amended to read as follows:
  g. notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary, where a
head  of  the household holds a current, valid tax abatement certificate
and, after the effective date of this paragraph, there  is  a  permanent
decrease  in  the  combined income of all members of the household in an
amount which exceeds twenty percent of such  income  as  represented  in
such  head of the household's last approved application for a tax abate-
ment certificate or for renewal thereof, such head of the household  may
apply for a redetermination of the amount set forth therein. Upon appli-
cation,  such  amount  shall  be  redetermined so as to re-establish the
ratio of adjusted rent to income which existed at the time  of  approval
of  such  head  of  the household's last application for a tax abatement
certificate or for renewal thereof; provided, however, that in no  event
shall  the  amount of the adjusted rent be redetermined to be (i) in the
case of a head of the household who does not receive a monthly allowance
for shelter pursuant to the social services law, less than one-third  of
the combined income of all members of the household; or (ii) in the case
of  a head of the household who receives a monthly allowance for shelter
pursuant to the social services law, less than the maximum allowance for
shelter which such head of the household is entitled to receive pursuant
to such law.  WHEN A REDETERMINATION OF THE ADJUSTED RENT HAS BEEN  MADE
PURSUANT  TO THIS PARAGRAPH, SUCH REDETERMINATION SHALL BE MADE RETROAC-

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
