  real property tax exemption

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary,
the assessor of the city of Albany, county of Albany, is hereby  author-
ized  to accept from Holding Our Own, Inc.  an application for exemption
from real property taxes pursuant to section 420-a of the real  property
tax  law for the 2009 and 2010 assessment rolls for the parcels owned by
such not-for-profit organization which is located in the city of Albany,
county of Albany, otherwise known as 373 Central Avenue, tax map  parcel
number  06504600010410000000;  356 Sherman Street, tax map parcel number
06504600010380000000, and 358 Sherman  Street,  tax  map  parcel  number
06504600010370000000.    If accepted, such application shall be reviewed
as if it had been received on or before the taxable status date or dates
established for such rolls.
  If satisfied that Holding Our Own, Inc. would otherwise be entitled to
such exemption if it had filed  an  application  for  exemption  by  the
appropriate  taxable status date, the assessor of the city of Albany may
upon approval by the common council of such city, grant  exemption  from
taxation  based  on the 2009 and 2010 assessment rolls and owing by such
not-for-profit organization on the effective date of this act, and  make
appropriate correction of the subject rolls. If such exemption is grant-
ed  and if such not-for-profit organization shall have paid any tax with
respect to the subject rolls, the governing body or tax department  may,
in  its  sole discretion, provide for the refund of those taxes paid and
cancel taxes, fines, penalties or interest remaining unpaid.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.

                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
