 Introduced  by Sen. GAUGHRAN -- read twice and ordered printed, and when

 AN ACT to amend chapter 122 of the laws of 2015 relating to tax  assess-
   ments for certain improved properties affected by Superstorm Sandy, in
   relation to extending the deadline for tax exemption applications

   THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
 
   Section 1. Subdivisions d and e of section 1 and section 2 of  chapter
 122 of the laws of 2015 relating to tax assessments for certain improved
 properties  affected  by  Superstorm Sandy, as amended by chapter 259 of
 the laws of 2020, are amended to read as follows:
   d. No such exemption shall be granted for reconstruction,  alterations
 or  improvements  unless  commenced  due  to damage caused by Superstorm
 Sandy, and reflected on a certificate of occupancy no later  than  March
 1, [2022] 2024.  The enactment of a local law or resolution granting the
 exemption  authorized pursuant to this act may limit eligibility for the
 exemption to those forms of reconstruction, alterations or  improvements
 as  are  prescribed  in such local law or resolution. Provided, however,
 that in no case shall such  exemption  be  granted  for  reconstruction,
 alterations  or  improvements  to  aspects of a primary residence not in
 existence or otherwise not a part of  the  primary  residence  prior  to
 October 29, 2012.
   e.  Application for such exemption shall be filed with the assessor of
 an eligible municipality by the first of March after the adoption  of  a
 local  law  or  resolution pursuant to subdivision a of this section, or
 the first of March of any subsequent year thereafter but no  later  than
 March  1, [2022] 2024, on a form prescribed by the commissioner of taxa-
 tion and finance.
   § 2. This act  shall  take  effect  immediately  and  shall  apply  to
 exemption  applications made prior to the first of March next succeeding
 the date on which this act shall have become a law  and  no  later  than
 March  1, [2022] 2024, and any exemption once granted shall continue for
 a period of up to eight prospective tax years as set forth in this act.
   § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
