BILL NUMBER:S6465

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the real property tax law, in relation
to real property tax exemptions for certain disabled veterans

PURPOSE: Relates to real property tax exemptions for disabled
veterans.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section one amends subdivision two of section 458-a of the real
property tax law by adding a new paragraph (e).

Section two is the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: This bill would provide real property tax exemptions
for one hundred percent disabled veterans (or the unmarried surviving
spouse of such veteran) who served in a combat theatre or combat zone
of operations, as documented by the award of a United States campaign
ribbon or service medal, armed forces expeditionary medal, navy
expeditionary medal, marine corps expeditionary medal, or global war
on terrorism expeditionary medal. The veteran must be one hundred
percent disabled as a result of military service, and shall be one
hundred percent exempt from real property taxation. This would reward
these American heroes who are now disabled with a tax break, a much
deserved exemption for these men and women who have sacrificed their
health and wellbeing for the safety of our country.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: Undetermined.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately and shall
apply to assessment rolls prepared on and after January 1, 2012.
