Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary, the assessor of the city of Troy is hereby authorized to accept from START Children's Center, Inc., an application for exemption from real property taxes pursuant to section 420-a of the real property tax law for a portion of the 2012 assessment roll for the parcel owned by such not-for-profit entity which is located at 131 sixth avenue, in the city of Troy, county of Rensselaer, otherwise known as lot 90.39 of block 5 of section 19. If accepted, the application shall be reviewed as if it had been received on or before the taxable status date established for such rolls.
