BILL NUMBER:S1995

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the real property tax law, in relation to partial property tax
exemptions of school taxes for qualified veterans

PURPOSE:
To extend real property partial tax
exemptions for qualified
veterans to include taxes for school purposes.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Amends §458 and 458-a of the real property tax law.

JUSTIFICATION:
Currently, New York State law provides a partial
property tax exemption for all qualified veterans. This exemption,
however does not apply to school taxes, which means that any break
these veterans' receive from their property tax must then be applied
toward the school tax, for which they receive no credit.
Considering the sacrifice these men and women have made for our
country, it seems only fitting that they are afforded this small
benefit.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
2007-08: S.3002 - Referred to Veterans, HomelandSecurity
& Military Affairs
2009-10: S.2195 - Referred to Veterans, Homeland Security
& Military Affairs

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
January 1st, next succeeding the date on which it
shall have become law.
