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  with
respect  to  a  portion of the 2010-2011 school taxes and portion of the
2011 general taxes and for the 2011-2012 assessment roll,  with  respect
to  the 2011-2012 school taxes and the 2012 general taxes 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.

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