AN ACT to authorize Konbit Neg Lakay to file an application for
exemption from real property taxes
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 town of Ramapo, county of Rockland, is hereby
authorized to accept from Konbit Neg Lakay an application for exemption
from real property taxes pursuant to section 420-a of the real property
tax law for the 2010 assessment roll, for the parcel owned by such
organization located at 16 E Church Street, in the village of Spring
Valley, within the town of Ramapo, county of Rockland, otherwise known
as Rockland county tax map, section 57.39, block 2, lot 32. 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 such organization would otherwise be entitled to
such exemption if such organization had filed an application by the
appropriate taxable status date, the assessor, upon approval by the town
board, may make appropriate corrections 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
