Introduced by Sen. SKELOS -- read twice and ordered printed, and when printed to be committed to the Committee on Local Government AN ACT to authorize Temple Israel to retroactively apply for a real property tax exemption for certain property in the village of Lawrence, county of Nassau THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM- BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS: Section 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary, the assessor of the county of Nassau is hereby authorized to accept from Temple Israel, an application for exemption from real property taxes pursuant to section 420-a of the real property tax law for the 2012 assessment roll, and for the 2011-2012 school taxes for the parcel owned by such not-for-profit entity which is located at 140 Central Avenue, in the village of Lawrence, county of Nassau, otherwise known as Nassau county section 40, block 91, lots 10, 14, 15, 16, 113 and 114. If accepted, the application shall be reviewed as if it had been received on or before the taxable status date established for such rolls. If satisfied that such not-for-profit organization would otherwise be entitled to such exemption if such not-for-profit organization had filed an application for exemption by the appropriate taxable status date, the assessor, upon approval by the Nassau county legislature, may make appropriate correction to the subject rolls. If such exemption is grant- ed and such organization, therefore, shall have paid any tax with respect to the subject rolls, the applicable governing body or tax department may, in its sole discretion, provide for the refund of those taxes paid and cancel those taxes, fines, penalties, liens, or interest remaining unpaid. S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
