AN ACT to amend the real property tax law, in relation to extending  the
  enhanced  STAR  exemption  to permanent total disabled volunteer fire-
  fighters

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

  Section  1.  Paragraph (a) of subdivision 2 of section 425 of the real
property tax law, as amended by section 1 of part E of chapter 83 of the
laws of 2002, is amended and a new subdivision 4-b is added to  read  as
follows:
  (a)  Overview.  There shall be two variations of the exemption author-
ized by this section: an exemption for property  owned  by  persons  who
satisfy  the  criteria  set  forth in subdivision three of this section,
which shall be known as the "basic" STAR exemption, and an exemption for
property owned by senior citizens, AND PERMANENT TOTAL  DISABLED  VOLUN-
TEER  FIREFIGHTERS  who  satisfy the criteria set forth in both subdivi-
sions three and four of this section, OR FOR PROPERTY OWNED BY PERMANENT
TOTAL DISABLED VOLUNTEER FIREFIGHTERS WHO SATISFY THE CRITERIA SET FORTH
IN SUBDIVISION FOUR-B OF THIS SECTION, TOGETHER which shall be known  as
the "enhanced" STAR exemption. The exempt amount for each assessing unit
shall be determined annually as set forth in this subdivision, by multi-
plying  the "base figure" by the locally-applicable "sales price differ-
ential factor," if any,  multiplying  the  product  by  the  appropriate
"equalization  factor"  for  the  assessing  unit,  and,  if  necessary,
increasing the result to equal the applicable  "floor."  The  result  is
then rounded to the nearest multiple of ten dollars.
  4-B.  PERMANENT  TOTAL  DISABLED VOLUNTEER FIREFIGHTERS.  THE ENHANCED
EXEMPTION SHALL BE PROVIDED FOR PROPERTY OWNED BY PERMANENT TOTAL  DISA-
BLED  VOLUNTEER  FIREFIGHTERS,  AS  SUCH  PERSONS ARE DEFINED IN SECTION
EIGHT OF THE VOLUNTEER FIREFIGHTERS' BENEFIT LAW.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
