BILL NUMBER:S6185

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 Holy Ghost
Headquarters Prayer Band Mission for a parcel of land located in the
town of Hempstead

PURPOSE:
To authorize the assessor of the County of Nassau to accept an applica-
tion for exemption from real property tax from the Holy Ghost Headquar-
ters Prayer Band Mission.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 420-a of the real property tax law for the assessment roll will
include the Holy Ghost Headquarters Prayer Band Mission for exemption.

Holy Ghost Headquarters Prayer Band Mission is a not-for-profit entity
that owns property in Valley Stream, NY. This property is used for
worship and religious observance. This property is located at 26-30
Jamaica Avenue, Valley Stream, NY 11580.

This legislation would provide the Holy Ghost Headquarters Prayer Band
Mission with an exemption from real property taxes pursuant to section

the second half of the 2011 assessment roll and as a portion of the 2010

AN ACT to authorize the assessor of the county of Nassau  to  accept  an
  application  for  exemption from real property tax from the Holy Ghost
  Headquarters Prayer Band Mission 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 Holy Ghost Headquarters  Prayer  Band  Mission  an  application  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 second half of
the 2011 assessment roll and a portion of the 2010 assessment roll,  and
the school taxes for a portion of the 2010-2011 assessment roll, for the
parcel  located in the town of Hempstead at 26-30 Jamaica Avenue, Valley
Stream, otherwise known as section 37, block 123, lot 25.
  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.
