BILL NUMBER:S6301

TITLE OF BILL:
An act to authorize the Beth El Synagogue of New Rochelle to apply for a
real property tax exemption for certain property in the city of New
Rochelle, county of Westchester

PURPOSE:
To authorize the Beth El Synagogue of New Rochelle to file an applica-
tion for a real property tax exemption.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1 authorizes the City of New Rochelle, County of Westchester, to
accept from the Beth El Synagogue of New Rochelle an application for
exemption from real property taxes.

Section 2 provides for an immediate effective date.

The Beth El Synagogue of New Rochelle is a not-for-profit organization
that purchased a house to be used by a member of its clergy after the
deadline for the application for a religious exemption from property

such an exemption if the organization had owned the property and filed
an application for the exemption by the appropriate taxable status date.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

AN ACT to authorize the Beth El Synagogue of New Rochelle to apply for a
  real property tax exemption for certain property in the  city  of  New
  Rochelle, county of Westchester

  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 New  Rochelle,  county  of  Westchester,  is
hereby  authorized  to accept from the Beth El Synagogue of New Rochelle
an application for  exemption  from  real  property  taxes  pursuant  to
section  420-a of the real property tax law for the 2011-2012 assessment
roll, for the parcel owned by such  not-for-profit  synagogue  which  is
located  at  68  Old Orchard Road, city of New Rochelle, county of West-
chester, otherwise known as New Rochelle tax map block  and  lot  number
1814-0026.  If  accepted, the application shall be reviewed as if it had
been received on or before the taxable status date established for  such
roll.
  If  satisfied  that  Beth  El Synagogue would otherwise be entitled to
such exemption if such  not-for-profit  organization  had  acquired  the
subject property and filed an application for exemption by the appropri-
ate taxable status date, the assessor, upon approval by the New Rochelle
City  Council,  may  make appropriate correction to the subject roll. If
such exemption is granted and such organization, therefore,  shall  have
paid  any tax with respect to the subject roll, the applicable governing
body or tax department may, in its  sole  discretion,  provide  for  the
refund  of  those  taxes  paid and cancel those taxes, fines, penalties,
liens or interest 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.
