Public Information Session Held on the Alternative Veterans’ Exemption

We recently posted about the Legislature’s recent amendment to the RPTL 458-a Alternative Veterans’ Exemption. From what we have seen and heard, most school districts statewide have determined not to pass the law by March 1, 2014 so that it would have been effective for the 2014/15 assessment and tax season. The reason for the delay generally is that districts feel they were not given enough time to fully investigate the financial impact of this exemption on other non-exempt property owners or to obtain a true picture of whether a majority of the taxpayers within their district support the exemption and would be willing to foot the tax increase that would likely follow.

The North Syracuse Central School District recently asked us to prepare a presentation for an informational session on the exemption. A copy of the presentation is available at http://www.nscsd.org/files/news/veterans%20exemption%20powerpoint.pdf.  News reports of that presentation can be found on twcnews and 9wsyr.
