TITLE OF BILL: An act to authorize Temple Israel to retroactively apply for a real property tax exemption for certain property in the village of Lawrence, county of Nassau
To authorize Temple Israel in the village of Lawrence, in the county of Nassau, to apply for a retroactive real property tax exemption
SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 420-a of the real property tax law for the assessment roll will include Temple Israel for exemption.
Temple Israel is a not-for-profit tax exempt organization that owns property located in the Village of Lawrence, NY. This property is used as a place of worship as well as other religious observances. The property is located 140 Central Ave., Lawrence, NY 11559. This legislation would provide the Temple Israel with an exemption from real property taxes pursuant to 420-a of the Real Property Tax Law for the 2013 assessment roll and for the 2012-2013 school taxes. Temple Israel has filed a timely application for tax exemption, and it has been approved, by the Nassau County Assessor. In order to preserve the community's organization for the use by its residents, Temple Israel needs the requested relief from real property taxes.
The specific pro-rata amount of tax refund will be calculated by the Nassau County Assessor's Office.
This act shall take effect immediately.

Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary, the assessor of the county of Nassau is hereby authorized to accept from Temple Israel, an application for exemption from real property taxes pursuant to section 420-a of the real property tax law for the 2013 assessment roll, and for the 2012-2013 school taxes for the parcel owned by such not-for-profit entity which is located at 140 Central Avenue, in the village of Lawrence, county of Nassau, otherwise known as Nassau county section 40, block 91, lot 9. If accepted, the application shall be reviewed as if it had been received on or before the taxable status date established for such rolls.
