  Section  1.  Paragraph  3  of subdivision 1 of section 458 of the real
property tax law, as amended by chapter 733 of  the  laws  of  1959,  is
amended to read as follows:
  (3)  If  the assessors are satisfied that the applicant is entitled to
any exemption, they shall make appropriate entries upon the  assessment-
roll  opposite  the  description of such property and subtract the total
amount of such exemption from the total amount assessed pursuant to  the
provisions  of  paragraph one of this subdivision. Such entries shall be
made and continued in each assessment of the property so long as  it  is
exempt  from taxation for any purpose. Such real property, to the extent
of the exemption entered by the assessors, shall be exempt  from  state,
county [and], general municipal AND SCHOOL DISTRICT taxation[, but shall
be  taxable  for local school purposes]. The provisions herein, relating
to the assessment and exemption  of  property  purchased  with  eligible
funds  apply and shall be enforced in each municipal corporation author-
ized to levy taxes.

ty tax law, as amended by chapter 625  of  the  laws  of  1995,  and  as

local  law  by the governing board of a county, city, town [or], village
OR SCHOOL DISTRICT that levies taxes or for which taxes are levied on an
assessment roll, if the total assessed value of the  real  property  for
which  such  exemption  has  been  granted increases or decreases as the
result of a revaluation or update of assessments, and a material  change
in  level  of  assessment, as provided in title two of article twelve of
