AN ACT to amend the  tax  law,  in  relation  to  increasing  a  pension


  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]  SEVENTY-FIVE  thousand  dollars,  which  are periodic payments
attributable to personal services performed by such individual prior  to
his retirement from employment, which arise (i) from an employer-employ-
ee  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
individual  who  has attained the age of fifty-nine and one-half from an
individual retirement account or an individual  retirement  annuity,  as
defined  in section four hundred eight of the internal revenue code, and
distributions 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.  Nevertheless,  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 and taxed under section six hundred three of  this
article. Where a husband and wife file a joint state personal income tax
return,  the  modification  provided  for  in  this  paragraph  shall be
computed as if they were  filing  separate  state  personal  income  tax

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