CARLUCCI -- read twice and ordered printed, and when printed to be committed to the Committee on Local Government AN ACT to authorize the St. James Mar Thoma Church to retroactively apply for a real property tax exemption for certain property in the town of Ramapo, county of Rockland 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 town of Ramapo, county of Rockland, is hereby authorized to accept from the St. James Mar Thoma Church an application or renewal application for exemption from real property taxes pursuant to section 420-a of the real property tax law for the 2009 assessment rolls, for the parcel owned by such not-for-profit church which is located at 526 Route 306, village of Suffern in the town of Ramapo, county of Rockland, otherwise known as Rockland county tax map, section 47.18, block 3, lot 1. If accepted, the application or renewal applica- tion shall be reviewed as if it had been received on or before the taxa- ble status date established for such rolls.

If such exemption is granted 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.
