BILL NUMBER:S6914B

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 Nassau Land
Trust, Inc. for a certain parcel of land located in the town of North
Hempstead

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
To authorize the Nassau Land Trust, Inc. to submit an application for
real property tax exemption to the Nassau County assessor.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1 allows the Nassau Land Trust, Inc. to file an application for
a real property tax exemption for the 2009-2010, 2010-2011, and
2011-2012 assessment rolls for the part of the property lots located at
226 and 227 Hoffstofs Lane, Sands Point.

Section 2 provides the act take effect immediately.

JUSTIFICATION:
The Nassau Land Trust, Inc., a not-for-profit corporation established to
preserve open space in Nassau County, was donated property located on
Hoffstofs Lane, Sands Point in 2003. The Nassau Land Trust, Inc. had
intended to use the land for educational purposes, however, they were
unable to obtain access to the property. Since the property was not
being used for the intended educational purposes, the Nassau Land Trust
was unable to receive an exemption for this property. Due to the usable
nature of the property, the mission of the Nassau Land Trust, and the
cost associated with the donated property, this bill would allow the
Nassau County Assessor to consider a retroactive exemption for this
property going back to 2009-2010.

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 Nassau Land
  Trust, Inc.  for a certain parcel of land located in the town of North
  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  Nassau  Land  Trust,  Inc.   an application for exemption from real
property taxes pursuant to section 420-a of the real  property  tax  law
for  the  2009-2010  assessment roll, the 2010-2011 assessment roll, and
the 2011-2012 assessment roll for the parcel  located  in  the  town  of
North  Hempstead  at  Hoffstofs  Lane,  Sands Point, otherwise known as:
section 4, block B, lots 226, 227.
  If accepted, the application shall be  reviewed  as  if  it  had  been
received  on  or  before  the  taxable  status date established for such
rolls.
  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 rolls. If  such
exemption is granted and such organization therefore shall have paid any
tax with respect to the subject rolls, 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.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
