BILL NUMBER:S7513

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to authorize the assessor of the county of Nassau to accept an
application for exemption from real property taxes from Merkos L'Inyonei
Chinuch, Inc. for a certain parcel of land located in the town of
Hempstead

PURPOSE:
To authorize Merkos L'Inyonei Chinuch to apply for a
retroactive real property tax exemption for a parcel in Nassau County.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
This bill would authorize and direct the
Assessor of the County of Nassau to accept an application for
exemption from real property taxes pursuant to Section 420-a of the
Real Property Tax Law for certain taxes owed by the Merkos L'Inyonei
Chinuch.

JUSTIFICATION:
Merkos L'Inyonie Chinuch, Inc. is a not-for-profit organization, and
the educational arm of the world wide Chabad-Lubavitch organization.
Merkos L'Inyonie Chinuch purchased the property known as 3000 Lawson
Blvd., in Oceanside, NY, on May 15, 2007 for the purpose of moving
its religious book storage, warehousing and shipping operation.

On or before January 2, 2008, Merkos L'Inyonie Chinuch made an
application to the Nassau County Department of Assessment for real
property tax exemption for the premises located at 3000 Lawson Blvd.,
Oceanside, N.Y., but the application was denied. The basis of the
denial by the Nassau County Assessor's Office was technical in
nature. Merkos L'Inyonie Chinuch qualifies for tax purposes for the
tax exempt status necessary to receive the benefits of the real
property tax exemption retroactively as well as moving forward.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
PASSED SENATE - 6/25/10 Referred to the Assembly Real Property
Taxation Committee

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 assessor of the county of Nassau  to  accept  an
  application  for  exemption  from  real  property  taxes  from  Merkos
  L'Inyonei Chinuch, Inc. for a certain parcel of land  located  in  the
  town of 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
Merkos L'Inyonei Chinuch, Inc. an application for  exemption  from  real
property  taxes  pursuant  to section 420-a of the real property tax law
with respect to the pro  rata  share  of  the  2010-2011  and  2011-2012
assessment  rolls,  for the parcel acquired by Merkos L'Inyonei Chinuch,
Inc. on May 15, 2007, located in the town of Hempstead  at  3000  Lawson
Boulevard,  Oceanside, otherwise known as section 43, block 348, lot 157
and 158. 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 beginning with the date of acquisition of the property by  such
organization  and  make  appropriate correction 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 department may, in its sole discretion, provide for  the  refund  of
those  taxes  paid  and  cancel 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.
