AN ACT to amend the real property tax law, in relation to  the  assessed
  valuation  of certain real property used for residential real property
  in the county of Orleans


  Section  1.  Section  581-a  of the real property tax law, as added by
chapter 714 of the laws of 2005, is amended to read as follows:
  S 581-a. Assessment of residential real property. Notwithstanding  any
other provision of law, the assessed valuation of real property used for
residential  rental  purposes where at least twenty percent of the resi-
dential units are subject to  an  agreement  with  a  municipality,  the
state,  the  federal  government,  or  an instrumentality thereof, which
agreement restricts occupancy of those units to tenants who  qualify  in
accordance  with  an  income  test, shall be determined using the income
approach as applied to the actual net operating income, after  deducting
for  reserves required by any federal, state or municipal programs.  THE
the purposes of this section "net operating income" shall mean the actu-
al or anticipated net income that remains after all  operating  expenses
are  deducted  from  effective  gross  income,  but before mortgage debt
service and book depreciation are deducted. The  assessed  valuation  of
real  property used for such residential rental purposes shall be deter-
mined using the actual net  operating  income,  and  shall  not  include
federal,  state  or  municipal  income  tax credits, subsidized mortgage
financing, or project grants, where such subsidies are  used  to  offset
the project development cost in order to provide for lower initial rents
as  determined by regulations promulgated by the division of housing and
community renewal.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately and shall apply to taxable
status dates occurring on or after the first of January next  succeeding
the date on which it shall have become a law.
