BILL NUMBER:S878

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

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 459-d is added to the real property tax law to allow veterans
with at least a 40% disability to a school tax exemption provided
that, upon public hearing, the school district adopts a resolution to
allow such. Medical proof of the disability would be required prior
to granting an exemption under provisions of this bill.

JUSTIFICATION:
The State of New York currently allows real property tax exemptions to
be granted to veterans and persons over the age of 65 provided there
is enabling legislation by the local municipality. This bill would
expand this provision and allow school tax exemptions for disabled
veterans with the adoption of a resolution by the school district.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
S.87 of 2003-04 - Passed Senate
S.101 of 2005-06 - Passed Senate
S.302A of 2007-08 - Passed Senate
S.2223A of 2009-10 - Advanced to Third reading

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None to the state; however, the localities will have minimal effect.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
June 1, 2012.
