Must a coop board allocate and distribute all proceeds from property tax abatement to unit owners who qualify or can they be allocated to all residents equally. We have a number of residents who don’t qualify and therefore are charged an assessment while qualifying residents receive the credit. Their rationale is that by not distributing the proceeds equally to all, the board is not meeting its fiduciary duty to treat all residents equally and that non-qualifying residents are shouldering the financial burden to pay to qualifying residents. Has anyone seen a different approach to allocation/distribution of the abatement?
