BILL NUMBER:S7797

TITLE OF BILL: An act relating to alternative exemptions for veterans

PURPOSE: This bill would require the division of veterans affairs, in
consultation with the department of taxation and finance, within
thirty days of this act and once annually thereafter, to reinforce
and/or remind assessors of the fact that the Persian Gulf conflict
referenced in section 458-a of the real property tax law includes, but
is not limited to, hostilities in Afghanistan and Iraq, also known as
Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation New
Dawn.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1: See Purpose.

Section 2: Effective Date.

JUSTIFICATION: In 2013, New York's Attorney General's staff found
some inconsistency in interpretations by assessors of section 458-a of
the Real Property Tax Law. Due to inconsistent interpretations some
veterans have returned home from service in Iraq and Afghanistan to
experience difficulties in obtaining a real property tax exemption
they are entitled to. This legislation seeks to ensure that assessors
statewide are applying the alternative veterans' exemption properly
and uniformly so that these brave men and women receive the tax
benefits they deserve.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: Minimal.

EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately.
