Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary, the assessor of the town of Babylon in the county of Suffolk is hereby authorized to accept from Long Island Teen Challenge, an application for exemption from real property taxes pursuant to section 420-a of the real property tax law for the assessment roll for 2009 for the parcel located at 157 Jefferson Avenue, North Amityville, section 164, block 5, lot 91. 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 satisfied that Long Island Teen Challenge, (i) acquired title to the property for which it seeks exemption subsequent to the taxable status dates established for such roll and prior to the taxable status dates for the next ensuing assessment roll and (ii) would otherwise be entitled to such exemption if it had filed an application for exemption by the appropriate taxable status date, the assessor, upon approval by the town board of Babylon, may grant exemption from taxation beginning with the date of acquisition of the property by Long Island Teen Chal- lenge, and make appropriate correction of the subject roll. If such exemption is granted and if Long Island Teen Challenge, therefore, shall have paid any tax with respect to such subject roll, the applicable governing body or tax department, upon approval by the town board of the town of Babylon, in its sole discretion, shall provide for the refund of any taxes, fines, and penalties paid and cancel any taxes, fines and penalties remaining unpaid.
