AN ACT to amend the real property tax law, in relation to tax  abatement
  for  rent-controlled  and  rent  regulated property occupied by senior
  citizens or persons with disabilities

BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.  Paragraph g of subdivision 3 of section 467-b of the real
property tax law, as amended by chapter 553 of  the  laws  of  2015,  is
amended to read as follows:
  g. notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary, where a
head  of  the household holds a current, valid tax abatement certificate
and, after the effective date of this paragraph, there  is  a  permanent
decrease  in  the  combined income of all members of the household in an
amount which exceeds twenty percent of such  income  as  represented  in
such  head of the household's last approved application for a tax abate-
ment certificate or for renewal thereof, such head of the household  may
apply for a redetermination of the amount set forth therein. Upon appli-

ratio of adjusted rent to income which existed at the time  of  approval
of  such  head  of  the household's last application for a tax abatement
certificate or for renewal thereof; provided, however, that in no  event
shall  the  amount of the adjusted rent be redetermined to be (i) in the
case of a head of the household who does not receive a monthly allowance
for shelter pursuant to the social services law, less than one-third  of
the  combined income of all members of the household unless such head of
the household has been granted a rent increase exemption order  that  is
in  effect  as of January first, two thousand fifteen or takes effect on
or before July first, two thousand fifteen; or (ii) in  the  case  of  a
head  of  the  household  who  receives  a monthly allowance for shelter
pursuant to the social services law, less than the maximum allowance for
