BILL NUMBER:S1307 REVISED 2/11/13 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the real property tax law, in relation to authorizing a tax abatement for certain rental property occupied by disabled veterans PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: To give municipalities that have rent controlled or rent stabilized dwelling units the power to extend the tax abatement law, which now applies only to senior citizens, to disabled veterans who qualify under the income eligibility provision. SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Paragraph b of subdivision 3 of section 467b of the real property tax law, as amended by section 1 of chapter 188 of the laws of 2005, is amended. JUSTIFICATION: A municipality is empowered to pass a local law, ordi- nance, or resolution granting a partial tax abatement to persons sixty two years or older who live in dwelling units subject to rent control or rent stabilization where the increase over the legal regulated rent exceeds one third of the householder's income. This bill is a natural and appropriate extension to the tax abatement for senior citizens who live in rent controlled or rent stabilized apartments. Many disabled veterans live on fixed incomes. These men and women deserve a decent standard of living. Those municipalities sensi- tive to disabled veterans' needs should have this enabling legislation.
