This bill would revise the definition of "active service in time of war" in N.J.S.A.54:4-8.10 to include service during the period of rescue and recovery of the victims of the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center in New York, New York, on September 11, 2001. This revision of the definition of "active service in time of war" would make an honorably discharged veteran of the United States Armed Forces eligible for the $250 veterans' property tax deduction. Specifically, the bill would require that a member of the United States Armed Forces must have served on the pile of rubble that resulted from the attacks on the World Trade Center in direct support of that rescue and recovery effort for a period, continuously or in the aggregate, of at least 14 days in such active service commencing on September 11, 2001 and ending on May 30, 2002. It would also require that any person receiving an actual service-incurred injury or disability while engaged in such service shall be classed as a veteran whether or not that person completed the required 14 days' service. This revision of the definition would also make an honorably discharged veteran of the United States Armed Forces eligible for a 100% property tax exemption under N.J.S.A.54:4-3.30 et seq. if the veteran sustained a service-connected 100 percent disability while serving at the World Trade Center site. While the State reimburses municipalities, at a rate of 102 percent ($255) for each property tax deduction provided to eligible veterans, the State does not reimburse municipalities for foregone property tax revenue resulting from the disabled veterans' 100 percent property tax exemption.
