Memo

BILL NUMBER:S2212

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the real property tax law, in relation to increasing maximum income eligibility levels for real property tax exemptions for seniors

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF THE BILL: To increase the local option income levels for a senior citizen partial exemption from real property taxes gradually, over a five year period

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: This bill amends section 467 of the real property tax law, to allow an increase at local option in the senior income levels eligible for sliding scale partial tax exemptions, as follows:

On and after July 1, 2012, the largest partial exemption (45%) would be the allowable income for the complete exemption plus $1,250, and the smallest (5%) would be income plus $10,500.

On and after July 1, 2013, the largest partial exemption (45%) would be the allowable income for the complete exemption plus $1,500, and the smallest (5%) would be income plus $12,600.

On and after July 1, 2014, the largest partial exemption (45%) would be the allowable income for the complete exemption plus $1,750, and the smallest (5%) would be income plus $14,750.

On and after July 1, 2015, the largest partial exemption (45%) would be the allowable income for the complete exemption plus $2,000, and the smallest (5%) would be income plus $16,800.

JUSTIFICATION: The full senior RPT exemption, of 50%, was amended last year to gradually increase the schedule from what was then the current amount of $25,000 to $29,000 by July 1, 2009. The partial exemption income levels have not been changed since 1994 and 1995. The schedule in this measure gradually increases the partial exemption, always at local option, over a five year period, at percentage levels that are even through the partial exemption schedule.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: S.2818A: 2007-08 - Referred to Aging, Passed Senate S.2022: 2009-10 - Referred to Aging

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None to the state.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
