Association for Neighborhood Rehabilitation v. Board of Assessors of the City of Ogdensburg
New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division
81 A.D.3d 1214 (2011)
The Association for Neighborhood Rehabilitation (the association) (plaintiff) was a not-for-profit corporation located in New York. The association’s mission was to provide housing for individuals and families who were homeless or at high risk of becoming homeless. The association owned several properties, including Gaslight Village (Gaslight), which it had established to provide housing for families at risk for homelessness. Gaslight differed from many of the association’s other properties in that it catered to families rather than individuals, consisted of families who were not as impoverished as many of the individuals at the other properties, and had optional rather than mandatory programs addressing the underlying causes of homelessness. The association applied to the Board of Assessors of the City of Ogdensburg for a tax exemption for several of its properties, including Gaslight. The board denied the application. The association appealed to the New York Supreme Court, which was the trial-level court. The trial court found that Gaslight qualified for a tax exemption. The matter was appealed.
