BILL NUMBER:S1645 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the real property tax law, in relation to authorizing certain exemptions from school district real property for veterans PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: This bill would eliminate the "School Tax Add Back" provision in the Veteran's property tax exemption program by local option. SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Amends subdivision 2 of section 458-a of the real property tax law, subparagraph (i) as added by chapter 525 of the laws of 1984 and subparagraph (ii) as amended by chapter 256 of the laws of 2005. JUSTIFICATION: Currently, New York State property tax laws provide partial property tax exemptions to qualified veterans of the United States Military. Unfortunately, this exemption is not applicable to school taxes. As a result, veterans receiving this benefit must pay back the school tax portion which can be as much as four hundred dollars for an average single family homeowner. Given the incredible sacrifices made by our military personnel, it is only fitting that we extend the veteran's property tax credits to school taxes.
