AN ACT to amend the real property tax law, in relation to real  property
  tax  exemptions  for  property  in  cities  having a population of one
  million or more and owned by certain veterans or their family members

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

  Section  1.  Paragraphs 2 and 3 of subdivision 1 of section 458 of the
real property tax law, paragraph 2 as amended by chapter 488 of the laws
of 1998 and paragraph 3 as amended by chapter 733 of the laws  of  1959,
are 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 thousand dollars; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, IN A CITY WITH A POPULATION OF
ONE MILLION OR MORE, NO EXEMPTION  ON  ACCOUNT  OF  ANY  GIFT  SHALL  BE
ALLOWED  IN  EXCESS  OF  TWO  THOUSAND 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.
  (3) If the assessors are satisfied that the applicant is  entitled  to
any  exemption, they shall make appropriate entries upon the assessment-
roll opposite the description of such property and  subtract  the  total
amount  of such exemption from the total amount assessed pursuant to the
provisions of paragraph one of this subdivision. Such entries  shall  be
made  and  continued in each assessment of the property so long as it is
exempt from taxation for any purpose. Such real property, to the  extent
