Solar, Wind & Biomass Energy Systems Exemption
Section 487 of the New York State Real Property Tax Law provides a 15-year real property tax exemption for solar and wind energy systems constructed in New York State. As currently effective, the law is a local option exemption, meaning that local governments are permitted decide whether or not to allow it. The exemption is valid unless a government opts out of the exemption, as opposed to the more common practice of requiring governments to opt-in in order to offer an exemption. The law intends to encourage the installation of solar, wind and farm-waste energy equipment systems and to ensure property owners that their real property taxes will not increase as a result of the installation of these systems. The amount of the exemption is equal to the increase in assessed value attributable to the solar, wind or farm-waste energy system. The exemption applies only to general municipal and school district taxes; it cannot be applied to special assessments or special ad valorem levies. For a list of local bodies that have opted not to offer the exemption, see: http://www.orps.state.ny.us/legal/localop/487opt.htm.
