AN ACT to amend the tax law, in relation to increasing the exemption for
  pensions and annuities for certain persons

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

  Section  1.  Paragraph 3-a of subsection (c) of section 612 of the tax
law, as amended by chapter 760 of the laws of 1992, is amended  to  read
as follows:
  (3-a)  Pensions  and  annuities  received  by  an  individual  who has
attained the age of fifty-nine  and  one-half,  not  otherwise  excluded
pursuant to paragraph three of this subsection, to the extent includible
in  gross  income  for federal income tax purposes, but not in excess of
[twenty] FIFTY thousand dollars, which are periodic  payments  attribut-
able  to  personal  services  performed  by such individual prior to his
retirement from employment, which arise (i)  from  an  employer-employee
relationship  or  (ii) from contributions to a retirement plan which are
deductible for federal income tax purposes. However, the term  "pensions
and  annuities" shall also include distributions received by an individ-
ual who has attained the age of fifty-nine and one-half from an individ-
ual retirement account or an individual retirement annuity,  as  defined
in section four hundred eight of the internal revenue code, and distrib-
utions  received by an individual who has attained the age of fifty-nine
and one-half from self-employed individual and owner-employee retirement
plans which qualify under section  four  hundred  one  of  the  internal
revenue code, whether or not the payments are periodic in nature. Never-
theless,  the  term  "pensions and annuities" shall not include any lump
sum distribution, as defined in subparagraph (A) of  paragraph  four  of
subsection  (e) of section four hundred two of the internal revenue code

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
