BILL NUMBER: S1284

TITLE OF BILL :
An act to authorize Iglesia de Dios Pentecostal to file an application
for a real property tax exemption


PURPOSE :
To authorize the town of Islip to grant a real property tax exemption
to Iglesia de Dios Pentecostal for payment of real property taxes in
connection with the 2001-2002 assessment roll.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS :
This bill would authorize the assessor of the town of Islip to accept
an application for exemption from real property taxes pursuant to
Section 420-a of the Real Property Tax Law for the 2001-2002
assessment roll. If satisfied that Iglesia de Dios Pentecostal would
otherwise have been entitled to said exemption, the assessor, upon
approval of the town board, is authorized to grant the exemption and
cancel all remaining unpaid taxes, interest, related fines and
penalties.

JUSTIFICATION :
Iglesia de Dios Pentecostal Church did not apply for a real property
tax exemption pursuant to section 420-a of the Real Property Tax Law
for the 2001-2002 assessment roll in connection with the pastoral
parsonage it owns in the Town of Islip. Due to this failure, taxes and
penalties of $15,978.35 are now due from the Church and the parcel is
threatened by tax lien foreclosure. This bill would allow the town of
Islip to accept a retroactive application from Iglesia de Dios
Pentecostal and waive the aforementioned taxes and penalties now due.
Iglesia de Dios Pentecostal membership is made up of a small group of
individuals and families. It would be a severe hardship for these
members to raise the money needed to pay the back taxes for the
property.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY :
New legislation.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS :
None to the state. The town would waive $15,978.35 in taxes and
penalty upon approval by the town board.

EFFECTIVE DATE :
This act shall take effect immediately.
