AN ACT to authorize the assessor of the county of Nassau  to  accept  an
  application  for  exemption  from  real  property tax from Divya Jyoti
  Jagritit Sansthan, Inc.  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
Divya Jyoti Jagritit Sansthan, Inc.  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  2012  assessment  and  a
portion  of the 2011 assessment roll, and the school taxes for the 2011-
2012 assessment roll and a portion of the 2010-2011 assessment roll, for
the parcel located in the town of Hempstead at 2026 Grand Avenue,  Bald-
win, otherwise known as section 54, block 24, lot 282.
  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.

                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
