TITLE OF BILL: An act to authorize the assessor of the county of Nassau to accept applications for exemption from real property tax from Madraigos, Inc. for certain parcels of land located in the town of Hempstead

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: This bill would authorize and direct the Assessor of the County of Nassau to accept an application for exemption from real property taxes pursuant to Section 420-a of the Real Property Tax Law for certain taxes owed by Madraigos, Inc.

JUSTIFICATION: Madraigos, Inc. is a not-for-profit entity that owns properties in Woodmere, NY. These properties are used as a referral agency, a youth recreation center, and provides case management and support for at-risk teens within the Jewish Orthodox community in an educational and religious setting, as recognized by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). These properties are located at 936 Broadway, Woodmere, NY 11598.

This legislation would provide Madraigos, Inc. with an exemption from real property taxes pursuant to Section 420-a of the Real Property Tax Law with respect to the general tax for the 2011 assessment roll and the school taxes for the 2010-2011 school tax roll. In addition, it would eliminate part of the 2009-2010 school tax roll, and part of the general tax for the 2010 assessment roll. Unfortunately, the organization could not file timely as it had acquired the property after the filing date for the 2010 tax year. As a result, Madraigos, Inc. has been liable for over a year's worth of property taxes despite its not-for-profit status. The organization has filed the application for exemption from real property in a timely manner, and been approved for exemption on the 2011-2012 tax rolls. The association does not have available funds to pay the assessment of real property taxes for the year in question. In order to preserve the community's organization for the use by its residents, Madraigos, Inc. needs the requested relief from real property taxes.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New legislation.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: The specific pro-rata amount of tax refund will be calculated by the Nassau County Assessor's Office.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.

Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary, the assessor of the county of Nassau is hereby authorized to accept from Madraigos, Inc. applications for exemption from real property taxes pursuant to section 420-a of the real property tax law for the 2009-2010 assessment roll with regard to a portion of the 2009-2010 school taxes and a portion of the 2010 general taxes, and the 2010-2011 assessment roll with regard to the 2010-2011 school taxes and the 2011 general taxes, and the 2011-2012 assessment roll with regard to the 2011-2012 school taxes and the 2012 general taxes, for the parcels owned by Madraigos, Inc. located in the town of Hempstead at section 39, block 221, and section 39, block 221, lot 238. If accepted, the applications shall be reviewed as if they had been received on or before the taxable status date established for such roll. If satisfied that such organization would otherwise be entitled to such exemption if such organization had filed applications for exemption by the appropriate taxable status date, the assessor, upon approval of the Nassau county legislature, may grant exemptions from all taxation beginning with the date of acquisition of the properties by such organ-
ization and make appropriate corrections to the subject roll. If such exemptions are granted and such organization therefore shall have paid any tax with respect to the subject roll, the governing body or tax department may, in its sole discretion, provide for the refund of those taxes paid and cancel taxes, fines, penalties, interest or tax liens remaining unpaid. S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
