taxation and 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 governing body or tax depart-
ment may, in its sole discretion, provide for the refund of those taxes
paid and cancel any taxes, fines, penalties, interest or tax liens
S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
