This was what was removed: "Class A multiple dwellings which are converted from non-residential use and which are located in designated areas of lower Manhattan, are certified by the New York City Department of Housing and Preservation Development, and meet the minimum spatial requirements for conversion are partially exempt from taxation, but liable for special assessments. Such eligible projects also receive tax abatement benefits on the tax lots containing the eligible multiple dwelling (equal to a percentage of the tax that would have been due in the first year of the benefit period except for the abatement). Owners of multiple dwellings whose conversions meet reduced minimum spatial requirements for conversion may apply for partial exemption and abatement benefits. Extended exemption and abatement benefits are available for those buildings which were designated as historical landmarks before issuance of a permanent or temporary certificate of occupancy for the portion of the building converted to an eligible multiple dwelling." 2) Also removed what was in eligibility criteria as this was only a portion of one of the incentives. This is what was deleted: "The aggregate floor area (the sum of the gross areas of the floors of the building) of commercial, community facility, and accessory use space within the multiple dwelling does not exceed 25% of the total aggregate floor area of the multiple dwelling. The non-residential building, or portion of, which is being converted to a multiple dwelling must have a certificate of occupancy for commercial, manufacturing or other non-residential use for not less than 90% of the aggregate floor area of such building, or the portion of, which is being converted to a multiple dwelling." 3) Added as well as non-residential properties to eligible property types box.

This was removed as it only described one exemption: "If allowed by local option, real property owned by such a company that is used for low-income housing is wholly or partially exempt from taxation, but is liable for special assessments". 2) Also removed eligibility criteria since it only captured part of the extensive details of the program and put in more general statement. This is what was removed: "if the property is owned by a housing development fund company organized under PHFL Article 11 and the Bsns Corp L, the housing project must be operated entirely on a co-op basis. If the property is owned by a limited-profit housing company organized on a co-op basis, at least 80% of the housing project must be used for co-op housing." 3) Removed what was in eligible property types: "Housing development fund company or limited-profit housing company" since these are only two of the housing companies that are eligible. 4) Added statute N.Y.
