Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary, the assessor of the city of Albany, county of Albany, is hereby author- ized to accept from Holding Our Own, Inc. an application for exemption from real property taxes pursuant to section 420-a of the real property tax law for the 2009 and 2010 assessment rolls for the parcels owned by such not-for-profit organization which is located in the city of Albany, county of Albany, otherwise known as 373 Central Avenue, tax map parcel number 06504600010410000000; 356 Sherman Street, tax map parcel number 06504600010380000000, and 358 Sherman Street, tax map parcel number 06504600010370000000. If accepted, such application shall be reviewed as if it had been received on or before the taxable status date or dates established for such rolls.

If such exemption is grant- ed and if such not-for-profit organization shall have paid any tax with respect to the subject rolls, the governing body or tax department may, in its sole discretion, provide for the refund of those taxes paid and cancel taxes, fines, penalties or interest remaining unpaid. S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
