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

  Section 1. Clause 10 of subparagraph (i) of paragraph 2 of subdivision
e  of section 26-403 of the administrative code of the city of New York,
as amended by chapter 422 of the laws of 2010, is  amended  to  read  as
follows:
  (10)  Housing accommodations not occupied by the tenant, not including
subtenants or occupants, as his or her primary residence, as  determined
by  a  court  of competent jurisdiction. For the purposes of determining
primary residency, a tenant who is a victim  of  domestic  violence,  as
defined in section four hundred fifty-nine-a of the social services law,
who  has  left  the  unit  because  of such violence, and who asserts an
intent to return to the housing accommodation  shall  be  deemed  to  be
occupying  the  unit  as  his or her primary residence.  FOR PURPOSES OF
DETERMINING PRIMARY RESIDENCY, AS SUCH TERM IS  USED  IN  THIS  CHAPTER,
THERE  SHALL BE A PRESUMPTION, REBUTTABLE BY THE TENANT, THAT THE TENANT
DOES NOT OCCUPY SUCH HOUSING ACCOMMODATION AS HIS OR HER  PRIMARY  RESI-
DENCE, WHERE:
  (I)  SUCH  TENANT  IS REQUIRED BY LAW TO FILE AN INCOME TAX RETURN AND
SUCH TENANT EITHER (A) FAILS TO FILE ONE OR MORE  CITY  RESIDENT  INCOME
TAX RETURNS OR (B) SUCH TENANT FILES ONE OR MORE FEDERAL, STATE OR LOCAL
INCOME  TAX RETURNS BASED UPON A RESIDENCE OTHER THAN THE HOUSING ACCOM-
MODATION WHICH IS SUBJECT TO THIS CHAPTER, PROVIDED, HOWEVER, THAT WHERE
A TENANT IS THE RECIPIENT OF A PROPERTY TAX EXEMPTION OR ANY  OTHER  TAX

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