AN ACT to authorize the county of Albany  to  file  an  application  for
  exemption  from  real  property  taxes  for  a  certain parcel of land
  located in the city of Albany, county of Albany

  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 city of Albany, is hereby authorized to accept from
the county of Albany, an application for exemption  from  real  property
taxes  pursuant to section 406 of the real property tax law for the 2012
assessment roll, for the parcel owned by such county, which  is  located
in  the city of Albany at 30 Clinton Avenue, otherwise known as: section
76.26, block 1, lot 22. If accepted, such application shall be  reviewed
as  if  it  had  been  received on or before the applicable deadline for
filing such applications established for such roll.
  If satisfied that such county: (i) acquired title to the property  for
which  it  seeks  exemption and (ii) would otherwise be entitled to such
exemption if such county had filed an application for exemption  by  the
applicable  deadline  for  filing  such applications, the assessor, upon
approval by the city of Albany common council, may grant exemption  from
all  taxation  beginning with the date of acquisition of the property by
such county and make appropriate correction  to  the  subject  roll.  If
exemption  is  granted  and such county shall have paid any taxes on the
property with respect to the subject roll, such county shall be entitled
to a refund of such taxes and may obtain such refund by way  of  set-off
against  any monies due from such county to the municipal corporation to
which such taxes were paid.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
