AN ACT to amend the real property tax law, in relation to veterans

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

  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 taxation[, but shall be taxable  for  local
school  purposes]. THE GOVERNING BODY OF A SCHOOL DISTRICT IN WHICH SUCH
PROPERTY IS LOCATED OR, IN THE CASE OF A CITY WITH A POPULATION  OF  ONE
MILLION OR MORE, THE LOCAL LEGISLATIVE BODY, MAY, AFTER PUBLIC HEARINGS,
ADOPT  A  LOCAL  LAW, ORDINANCE OR RESOLUTION PROVIDING FOR AN EXEMPTION
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 authorized to levy
taxes.
  S 2. Paragraph (a) of subdivision 5 of section 458 of the real proper-
ty tax law, as amended by chapter 625  of  the  laws  of  1995,  and  as
further  amended by subdivision (b) of section 1 of part W of chapter 56
of the laws of 2010, is amended to read as follows:

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                           LBD00298-01-7
