BILL NUMBER: S1172

TITLE OF BILL :

An act to authorize Union Graduate College to file an application for
real property tax exemption in the city of Schenectady


PURPOSE :

This bill permits the City of Schenectady to accept a late application
for certain real property tax exemptions for the 2008 assessment roll,
and, if found eligible, to grant the exemption and refund any excess
property taxes paid by the tax-exempt organization.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS :

The bill permits the Schenectady City Assessor to accept and evaluate
an application for tax exemptions for the 2008 assessment roll even
though the deadline for this application has passed, and, if the
Assessor finds that the entity and properties are indeed tax exempt,
permits the City to grant the exemptions and refund any excess
property taxes already paid.

EXISTING LAW :

Under current law, there is no authority for the Assessor to accept
and evaluate late applications. The owner of property which would be
exempt pursuant to section 420-a of the Real Property Tax Law may,
however, seek judicial review pursuant to article seven of the Real
Property Tax law or article 78 of the Civil Practice Law and Rules.

JUSTIFICATION :

In 2008, the Union Graduate College acquired property for construction
of a new classroom/administration building. Regrettably, the College
failed to file the necessary paperwork for their property tax
exemption in time for the 2008 taxable status date. This legislation
will permit the assessor to accept a late application.

EFFECTIVE DATE :
Immediately.
