BILL NUMBER:S1420 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the real property tax law, in relation to providing a rent increase exemption to persons with disabilities PURPOSE: To simplify the application process for the Disability Rent Increase Exemption (DRIB) program by providing for an income limit similar to that currently used for the Senior Citizen Rent Increase Exemption (SCRIE) program. SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Amends §467-b and §467-c of the Real Property Tax law to provide that tile DRIE income limit for persons who receive either Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or disability related Medicaid is the same as the income limit for SCRIE applicants. Additional amendments to sections 467-15 and 467-c of Real Property Tax law provide that the DRIB eligibility criteria for disabled veterans is the same as that currently provided for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) recipients. The bill specifies that disabled veterans are eligible for tile DRIE program if they meet the other criteria for eligibility (must live in a rent regulated apartment and pay one-third or more of their income for rent).
