Notwithstanding any other provision of any law to the contrary, the assessor of the county of Nassau is hereby authorized to accept from the Incorporated Village of Roslyn an application for an exemption from real property taxes pursuant to section 406 of the real property tax law for the [2012-2013] 2011-2012 assessment rolls from the pro-rata portion of the [2012-2013] 2011-2012 school taxes and a pro- rata share of the [2013] 2012 general taxes, AND FOR THE ENTIRE 2012-2013 ASSESSMENT ROLLS for the parcels located at [lots 1199-] LOT 1200 of block 106 of section 7 on the Nassau County Land and Tax Map.
