AN ACT to authorize Muslims on Long Island, Inc. to retroactively  apply
  for  real  property tax exemptions for certain properties in Bethpage,
  town of Oyster Bay, county of Nassau

  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
Muslims  on  Long  Island, Inc. applications or renewal applications for
exemptions from real property taxes pursuant to  section  420-a  of  the
real property tax law for part of the 2010-2011 assessment roll, and the
2011-2012  assessment  roll, for the parcel owned by such not-for-profit
corporation which is located at 300 Central  Avenue,  Bethpage,  in  the
town  of  Oyster Bay, county of Nassau, otherwise known as Nassau county
section 46, block 112, lot 9. If accepted, the applications  or  renewal
applications shall be reviewed as if they 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 exemptions  if  such  not-for-profit  organization  had
filed  applications or renewal applications for exemptions by the appro-
priate taxable status date, the assessor, upon approval  by  the  Oyster
Bay  town board, may make appropriate correction to the subject roll. If
such exemptions are granted and such organization, therefore, shall have
paid any taxes with respect to the subject roll, the applicable  govern-
ing  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.
