BILL NUMBER:S4092

TITLE OF BILL: An act to authorize Hands Across Long Island, Inc. to
retroactively apply for a real property tax exemption for certain prop-
erty in the census-designated place of Ronkonkoma, town of Brookhaven,
county of Suffolk

PURPOSE: To authorize Hands Across Long Island, Inc. to file for a
property tax exemption for property owned within the Town of Brookhaven.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: This bill would authorize the assessor of the
Town of Brookhaven to accept from Hands Across Long Island an applica-
tion or renewal application for exemption from real property taxes as if
made pursuant to 420-a of the Real Property Tax Law. If satisfied that
Hands Across Long Island, Inc. would otherwise have been entitled to
such exemption, the assessor is authorized to grant the same, and cancel
all remaining unpaid taxes, interest, related fines and penalties.

JUSTIFICATION: Hands Across Long Island, Inc. has purchased a piece of
real property located in the Town of Brookhaven for the purpose of
providing mental health services to the community. It is intended by
this bill to undo the hardships that will be suffered if the organiza-
tion is required to pay property taxes that would otherwise not be due,
if the organization had submitted their application for exemption in a
timely manner.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None to the State.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.

AN ACT to authorize Hands Across  Long  Island,  Inc.  to  retroactively
  apply  for  a  real property tax exemption for certain property in the
  census-designated place of Ronkonkoma, town of Brookhaven,  county  of
  Suffolk

  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 town of Brookhaven is hereby  authorized  to  accept
from  Hands Across Long Island, Inc., an application or renewal applica-
tion for exemption from real property taxes pursuant to section 420-a of
the real property tax law for the 2010-2011 assessment  rolls,  for  the
parcel  owned  by  such  non-profit organization which is located at 756
Hawkins Avenue, in the census-designated place of Ronkonkoma in the town
of Brookhaven, county of Suffolk, otherwise known as Suffolk county  tax
map  #0200.62000.0300.028000.  If  accepted,  the application or renewal
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 have otherwise been entitled
to such exemption if such organization had filed an application for such
exemption  by  the  appropriate taxable status date, the assessor of the
town of Brookhaven, upon approval by the  town  board  of  the  town  of
Brookhaven,  may  grant  exemption from all taxation with respect to the
subject rolls and make appropriate corrections to the subject  roll.  If
the  exemption  is granted and such organization shall have paid any tax
with regard to the subject rolls,  the  town  board  may,  in  its  sole
discretion, provide for the refund of those taxes paid and cancel 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.
