[Adopted 10-23-1985 by L.L. No. 4-1985]
If the ratio between the exemption for veterans granted under § 458 of the Real Property Tax Law and the total assessed value of the real property for which such exemption has been granted increases or decreases due only to a full value assessment in the Town of Clarence, the amount of the exemption heretofore or hereafter granted shall be increased or decreased in the same proportion as the total assessed value is increased or decreased.
The exemption granted pursuant to this article shall be granted to real property for which an exemption has been granted pursuant to § 458 of the Real Property Tax Law on the assessment roll immediately preceding the change in level of assessment, provided that property is owned by the veteran or by another person eligible to receive such exemption.
Gold Star Parents.
