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.
