BILL NUMBER:S6162

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to authorize the assessor of the county of Nassau to accept an
application
for exemption from real property tax from the Spiritual Assembly of
the Baha'is of the Town of Hempstead for a
parcel of land located in the town of Hempstead

PURPOSE:
To authorize the assessor of the County of Nassau to accept an
application for exemption from real property tax from Spiritual
Assembly of the Baha'is of the Town of Hempstead.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 420-a of the real property tax law for the assessment roll
will include the Spiritual Assembly of the Baha'is of the Town of
Hempstead for exemption.

JUSTIFICATION:
This legislation would provide the Spiritual Assembly of the Baha'is
of the Town of Hempstead with an exemption from real property taxes
pursuant to 420-a of the Real Property Tax Law with respect to the
general tax for the 2010 assessment roll and the school taxes for
the 2009-2010 school tax roll. In order to preserve the community's
organization for the use by its residents, the Spiritual Assembly of
the Baha'is of the Town of Hempstead needs the requested relief from
real property taxes.

This legislation will undo the imposition of the property taxes
erroneously levied against the Spiritual Assembly of the Baha'is of
the Town of Hempstead for the year 2010, and relieve the financial
burden placed on the organization.

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.

AN ACT to authorize the assessor of the county of Nassau  to  accept  an
  application  for  exemption  from real property tax from the Spiritual
  Assembly of the Baha'is of the Town of Hempstead for a parcel of  land
  located in the town of Hempstead

  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 county of Nassau is hereby authorized to accept from
the Spiritual Assembly of the Baha'is of the Town of Hempstead an appli-
cation for exemption from real property taxes pursuant to section  420-a
of  the  real  property  tax law with respect to the general tax for the
2010 assessment roll and the school taxes for the  2009-2010  assessment
roll, for the parcel located in the town of Hempstead at 11 West Jamaica
Avenue,  Valley  Stream,  otherwise  known as section 37, block 124, lot
134.
  If accepted, the application shall be  reviewed  as  if  it  had  been
received  on  or  before  the  taxable  status date established for such
rolls.
  If satisfied that such organization would  otherwise  be  entitled  to
such  exemption  if  such  organization  had  filed  an  application for
exemption by the appropriate taxable status  date,  the  assessor,  upon
approval  of the Nassau county legislature, may grant exemption from all
taxation beginning with the date of acquisition  of  the  properties  by
such organization and make appropriate corrections to the subject rolls.
If  such exemption is granted and such organization therefore 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,  interest  or  tax
liens remaining unpaid.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
