BILL NUMBER:S1924 REVISED 04/04/11 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the real property tax law, in relation to eliminating the requirement to annually reapply to the exemption granted to persons sixty-five years of age or over PURPOSE: To remove the annual re-application that senior citizens are currently required to submit for real property tax exemption. SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1 of this measure amends subdivision 6 of section 467 of the real property tax law, as amended by chapter 395 of the laws of 1989, and paragraphs (b) and (c) as amended by chapter 471 of the laws of 1990 by eliminating the clause in paragraph (a) stating that the assessing authority shall mail to each person who was granted tax exempt status via this section on the latest completed assessment roll within 60 days of the appropriate taxable status date an application form and notice that such application must be completed on or before the taxable status date and be approved for the exemption to be granted. The law will therefore provide that applicants deemed eligible in the first instance may demonstrate continuing eligibility by submission of a sworn affidavit, instead of full reapplication.
