§ 616. New York exemptions of a resident individual. (a) General. For
taxable years beginning after nineteen hundred eighty-seven, a resident
individual shall be allowed a New York exemption of one thousand dollars
for each exemption for which he is entitled to a deduction for the
taxable year under section one hundred fifty-one(c) of the Internal
Revenue Code; and for taxable years beginning in nineteen hundred
eighty-seven, a resident individual other than a taxpayer whose federal

hundred dollars for each exemption for which he is entitled to a
deduction for the taxable year for federal income tax purposes.

entitled to the New York exemptions under subsection (a) of this section
to which each would be separately entitled for the taxable year if their
federal income taxes had been determined on separate returns.
