BILL NUMBER:S7442A

TITLE OF BILL:
An act to authorize the Hebrew Academy of Five Towns and Rockaway to
retroactively apply for a real property tax exemption for certain prop-
erty in the village of Lawrence, county of Nassau

PURPOSE:
This bill authorizes the Hebrew Academy of the Five Towns and Rockaway
to retroactively apply for a real property tax exemption.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 420-a of the real property tax law for the assessment roll will
include the Hebrew Academy of the Five Towns and Rockaway for exemption.

JUSTIFICATION:
The Hebrew Academy of the Five Towns and Rockaway is a not-for-profit
organization that owns property in Lawrence, NY. This property is
located at 371 Central Avenue, Lawrence, NY 11559 for the use as a
school.

This legislation would allow Hebrew Academy of the Five Towns and Rocka-
way an exemption from real property taxes pursuant to 420-a of the Real
Property Tax Law for the 2011-2012 tax year. The transfer of the proper-
ty to the Hebrew Academy of the Five Towns and Rockaway occurred after
the filing deadline for exempt status. Had the Hebrew Academy of the
Five Towns and Rockaway filed for an application by the appropriate
date, then it would have been entitled to such an exemption. In order to
continue to provide the educational and religious services to the commu-
nity, the Hebrew Academy of the Five Towns and Rockaway needs the
requested relief from real property taxes.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New legislation.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
The specific pro-rata amount of tax refund will be calculated by the
Nassau County Assessor's Office.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.

AN ACT to authorize the Hebrew Academy of Five  Towns  and  Rockaway  to
  retroactively  apply  for  a  real  property tax exemption for certain
  property in the village of Lawrence, 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
the  Hebrew  Academy  of  Five  Towns  and  Rockaway, an application for
exemption from real property taxes pursuant to section 420-a of the real
property tax law for the pro rata  share  of  the  2011-2012  assessment
roll,  for  the  parcel  owned  by  such  not-for-profit entity which is
located at 371 Central Avenue, in the village  of  Lawrence,  county  of
Nassau,  otherwise known as Nassau county section 41, block 48, lot 535.
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 not-for-profit organization would otherwise  be
entitled to such exemption if such not-for-profit organization had filed
an application for exemption by the appropriate taxable status date, the
assessor,  upon  approval  by  the  Nassau  county legislature, may make
appropriate correction to the  subject  rolls.  If  such  exemptions  is
granted  and  such organization, therefore, shall have paid any tax with
respect to the subject rolls,  the  applicable  governing  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.
