ALBANY, NY – Governor Andrew Cuomo has signed a law making it so that veterans who are living in New York State can get tax exemptions from school property taxes.
“Our veterans answered the call and risked their own personal safety and their lives in order to defend the ideals and principles that this nation and this state were founded upon,” Governor Cuomo said. “This measure allows local school districts to extend the same property tax breaks as local governments do, allowing them to honor the service of these incredibly courageous New Yorkers.”
Senator Tom O’Mara and Senator Cathy Young, and Assembly members Palmesano, Errigo and Giglio, were yes votes, on this legislation.
