AN ACT to authorize the assessor of the town of Ramapo, in the county of
  Rockland, to accept a retroactive application for a real property  tax
  exemption for a parcel owned by the Upper Room House of Worship

  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, in the county of Rockland, is hereby
authorized to accept from Upper Room House of Worship an application for
exemption from real property taxes pursuant to section 420-a of the real
property tax law for the 2009 assessment roll, for the parcel  owned  by
such  organization located at 118 Bethune Boulevard in the town of Rama-
po, otherwise known as Rockland county tax map, section 57.24, block  1,
lot 38. 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 not-for-profit organization would otherwise be
entitled to such  exemption  if  such  not-for-profit  organization  had
acquired  the property and filed an applicant by the appropriate taxable
status date, such assessor, upon approval by the town board of the  Town
of Ramapo, 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.
