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 Congregation Beth Mikroh, Inc. an application for exemption from real property taxes pursuant to section 420-a of the real property tax law for the 2010 assessment roll, for the parcel owned by such not-for-profit which is located at 208 West Maple Avenue, Monsey, county of Rockland, otherwise known as Rockland county tax map, section 49.11, block 1, lot 1. If accepted, the application shall be reviewed as if it had been received on or before the taxable status date established for such roll.

If such exemption is granted and such congregation, therefore, shall have paid any tax with respect to the subject roll, 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.
