Section 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary,

Victims Information Bureau of Suffolk, Inc. an application for exemption
from real property taxes pursuant to section 420-a of the real property
tax law for the 2009-2010 and 2010-2011 assessment rolls, for the parcel
conveyed to such organization, with such parcel being located in the
town of Islip at 185 Oval Drive, Islandia 11749, otherwise known as:
district 504, section 11, block 1, lot 20. If accepted, the application
shall be reviewed as if it had been received on or before the taxable
status date established for such roll.

exemption by the appropriate taxable status date, the assessor of the
town of Islip, upon approval by the town board of such town, may grant
exemption from all taxation beginning on the date of the conveyance of
such parcel to such organization on the effective date of this act and
cancel taxes, fines, penalties and interest remaining unpaid, and repay
any taxes, fines, penalties and interest paid by such organization, and
make appropriate correction of the subject roll.
