AN ACT to amend the real property tax law,  in  relation  to  increasing
  exemption for veterans


  Section 1.  Paragraph 2 of subdivision 1 of section 458  of  the  real
property  tax  law,  as  amended  by chapter 488 of the laws of 1998, is
amended to read as follows:
  (2) Except as provided in subdivision five of this  section,  no  such
exemption  on  account  of eligible funds paid on account of military or
naval services rendered by an individual shall be allowed in  excess  of
[five]  SEVEN  thousand  FIVE  HUNDRED dollars. For the purposes of this
subdivision any established exemption, or newly claimed exemption, or an
aggregate thereof, as the case may be, in  excess  of  any  multiple  of
fifty  dollars  shall be regarded as being the nearest multiple of fifty
dollars and allowed in such amount. If the amount of such exemption  has
no  nearest multiple of fifty dollars, it shall be regarded as being the
next higher multiple of fifty dollars and allowed in  such  amount.  The
mingling  of  such eligible funds with other funds or their retention by
the United States for insurance premiums shall not bar the granting of a
claim for such exemption.
  S 2.  This act shall take effect on the first of July next  succeeding
the date on which it shall have become a law.

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