BILL NUMBER:S6913

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to authorize the assessor of the county of Nassau to accept an
application for exemption from real property tax from the
Epilepsy Foundation of Long Island, Inc.
for a certain parcel of land located in the town of
Hempstead

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
To authorize the Epilepsy Foundation of Long Island Inc. to submit an
application for real property tax exemption to the Nassau County
assessor.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1 allows the Epilepsy Foundation of Long Island, Inc. to file
an application for a real property tax exemption for a portion of the
2011-2012 assessment roll for the part of the property located at 1500
Hempstead Turnpike, East Meadow that was not leased to another party
during such period.

Section 2 provides the act take effect immediately.

JUSTIFICATION:
The Epilepsy Foundation of Long Island, Inc., a New York
not-for-profit corporation, purchased property located at 1500
Hempstead Turnpike, East Meadow, on November 2, 2011. Due to the
timing of the closing and the approval of its tax exempt status, the
Foundation was unable to file an application for a tax exemption for
the entire 2011-2012 assessment roll. The Foundation was renting a
portion of the property during this time. Accordingly, this bill
allows the Foundation to retroactively submit an application for a
partial exemption for the 2011-2012 assessment roll, only with regard
to the property that was not leased to another party.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.

AN ACT to authorize the assessor of the county of Nassau  to  accept  an
  application  for  exemption  from  real property tax from the Epilepsy
  Foundation of Long Island, Inc.  for a certain 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
the Epilepsy Foundation  of  Long  Island,  Inc.    an  application  for
exemption from real property taxes pursuant to section 420-a of the real
property tax law for a portion of the 2011-2012 assessment roll for that
portion of the parcel located in the town of Hempstead at 1500 Hempstead
Turnpike,  East  Meadow,  otherwise known as: section 50, block 340, lot
452, which is not leased to another party.
  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  for
exemption  by  the  appropriate  taxable status date, the assessor, upon
approval of the Nassau county legislature, may grant exemption from  all
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
remaining unpaid.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
