BILL NUMBER:S4169

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the real property tax law, in relation to an additional
exemption for veterans from property tax levied for school purposes

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
To provide an additional exemption from real property taxes levied for
school purposes to qualifying residential property owned by veterans.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
Section one of the bill establishes the amendment of subparagraph (i)
of paragraph (d) of subdivision 2 of §458-a of the Real Property Tax
Law, as added by Chapter 525 of the Laws of 1984.

Section two establishes the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:
The men and women in our armed forces have made many sacrifices over
the years as they have been called upon to defend our nation, and
fight for American policy throughout the globe. This bill is an
effort to recognize the willing sacrifices that these soldiers and
sailors and their families have made and provide a way for local
communities to express their gratitude. For our communities on Long
Island, military families are experiencing the pressures of our high
cost of living. With one or more members of a family serving, the
ability to make ends meet can be severely strained. This bill is
intended to relieve some of that pressure and alleviate the economic
hardship due to their service to our country.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
2007-08: Senate Veterans, Homeland Security & Military Affairs Committee
2010: S.2603 Advanced to Third Reading

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately and shall apply to assessment
rolls prepared on the basis of taxable status dates occurring on or
after such date.
