S T A T E O F N E W Y O R K ________________________________________________________________________ S. 6919 A. 9810 S E N A T E - A S S E M B L Y April 11, 2012 ___________ IN SENATE -- Introduced by Sens. YOUNG, O'MARA, VALESKY -- (at request of the Legislative Commission on Rural Resources) -- read twice and ordered printed, and when printed to be committed to the Committee on Local Government IN ASSEMBLY -- Introduced by M. of A. GUNTHER -- Multi-Sponsored by -- M. of A. BURLING, LIFTON, PALMESANO -- read once and referred to the Committee on Real Property Taxation AN ACT to amend the real property tax law, in relation to authorizing real property taxing jurisdictions to grant a tax exemption for a primary residence purchased by a physician in a physician shortage area THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM- BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS: Section 1. Legislative findings and intent. The legislature hereby finds that several communities within the state, particularly those located within rural areas, lack adequate access to physicians. It is well established that ensuring the sufficient availability of general practitioners and specialists directly benefits the health of state residents, and the legislature has enacted several measures towards that end. Furthermore, the legislature finds that municipalities are often best situated to evaluate the needs of their communities. Therefore, it is the intent of the legislature to offer counties, cities, towns, villages and school districts the option to provide real property tax exemptions, should they determine that such an incentive would aid in attracting physicians to areas currently underserved by the medical community. S 2. The real property tax law is amended by adding a new section 439 to read as follows: S 439. REAL PROPERTY TAX EXEMPTIONS IN DESIGNATED PHYSICIAN SHORTAGE AREA. 1. A MUNICIPAL CORPORATION OR SCHOOL DISTRICT MAY EXEMPT REAL PROPERTY PURCHASED BY A PHYSICIAN FOR USE SOLELY AS HIS OR HER PRIMARY RESIDENCE, TO THE EXTENT PROVIDED IN THIS SECTION, FROM TAXATION BY SUCH MUNICIPAL CORPORATION OR SCHOOL DISTRICT IF THE PHYSICIAN RESIDES IN AND EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets [ ] is old law to be omitted.
