Such local law may also provide for the abatement of any or all of the property taxes which are payable to such city, town or village from such project, for such duration as is provided in such local law, if any property taxes remain to be paid after the exemption or abatement provided in this section is determined.

Provided that the tax exemption or abatement authorized by this section shall be in addition to any other tax exemption or abatement authorized by law, and provided further, however, that in the event a project ceases to be subject to one or more provisions of this article any tax exemption or abatement authorized pursuant to this section with respect to the eligible property of such project shall terminate.
