BILL NUMBER:S7442A

TITLE OF BILL: An act to authorize the Hebrew Academy of Five Towns and Rockaway to retroactively apply for a real property tax exemption for certain property in the village of Lawrence, county of Nassau

PURPOSE: This bill authorizes the Hebrew Academy of the Five Towns and Rockaway to retroactively apply for a real property tax exemption.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 420-a of the real property tax law for the assessment roll will include the Hebrew Academy of the Five Towns and Rockaway for exemption.

JUSTIFICATION: The Hebrew Academy of the Five Towns and Rockaway is a not-for-profit organization that owns property in Lawrence, NY. This property is located at 371 Central Avenue, Lawrence, NY 11559 for the use as a school.

This legislation would allow Hebrew Academy of the Five Towns and Rockaway an exemption from real property taxes pursuant to 420-a of the Real Property Tax Law for the 2011-2012 tax year. The transfer of the property to the Hebrew Academy of the Five Towns and Rockaway occurred after the filing deadline for exempt status. Had the Hebrew Academy of the Five Towns and Rockaway filed for an application by the appropriate date, then it would have been entitled to such an exemption. In order to continue to provide the educational and religious services to the community, the Hebrew Academy of the Five Towns and Rockaway needs the requested relief from real property taxes.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New legislation.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: The specific pro-rata amount of tax refund will be calculated by the Nassau County Assessor's Office.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.

If accepted, the application shall be reviewed as if it had been received on or before the taxable status date established for such rolls.
