AN ACT in relation to authorizing the town of Malta, county of Saratoga,
  to adopt a local law providing for a partial abatement of  town  taxes
  for volunteer firefighters and volunteer ambulance workers

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Abatement of town taxes in the town  of  Malta,  county  of
Saratoga. Notwithstanding any provision of law to the contrary, the town
board of the town of Malta, county of Saratoga, may provide by local law
for  the  partial abatement of town real property taxes pursuant to this
act.
  S 2. Eligible property. The property  of  volunteer  firefighters  and
volunteer  ambulance  workers shall be eligible to receive the abatement
provided by this act.
  S 3. Procedure. No separate application  shall  be  required  for  the
abatement.  The  town tax receiver shall compute and apply the abatement
when extending the tax on eligible property. Eligibility for such abate-
ment shall be determined annually. A property that becomes eligible  for
a year subsequent to the initial year in which such abatement is author-
ized  by  local law shall receive the abatement for such subsequent year
and for each year thereafter while it remains eligible and until author-
ization for the abatement expires. If eligibility for the  abatement  or
the  amount  of  the abatement changes after the extension of taxes, the
assessor shall notify  the  appropriate  official  responsible  for  the
collection  or refund of taxes, who shall calculate and impose or refund
the difference in taxes accordingly.
  S 4. Computation of abatement. The abatement granted pursuant to  this
act shall eliminate all of the tax that results from the funding of town
emergency  services.  It  shall  not limit tax increases in the town tax
that result from actual changes in the value of property or from  subse-
quent  town tax rate increases or increases in taxes other than the town
tax.
  S 5. This act shall take effect immediately.
