BILL NUMBER:S6162A

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
2009-2010  assessment  roll,  with respect to the 2009-2010 school taxes
and the general taxes, 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.
