BILL NUMBER:S6605A

TITLE OF BILL: An act to authorize the START Children's Center, Inc.
to retroactively apply for a real property tax exemption for certain
property in the city of Troy, county of Rensselaer

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: Retroactive application of real
property tax exemption for the START Children's Center, Inc.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section 1. Notwithstanding any other
provision of any law to the contrary, the assessor of the city of Troy
is hereby authorized to accept from START Children's Center, Inc. for
the period of time from May 1, 2012 through June 30, 2012, an
application for exemption from real property taxes pursuant to section
420-a of the real property tax law for a portion of the 2012
assessment roll for the parcel owned by such not-for-profit entity
which is located at 131 Sixth Avenue, Troy, New York, 12180, also
known as Lot 90.39 of Block 5 of Section 19.

JUSTIFICATION: In May 2012 START Children's Center, Inc. purchased the
parcel located at 131 Sixth Avenue, Troy, New York, 12180, also known
as Lot 90.39 of Block 5 of Section 19 from ARC. Both organizations are
tax exempt, 501c(3) organizations. When ARC moved out of the premises,
the City of Troy placed the property back on the tax roll, pursuant to
New York State law. START Children's Center, Inc. filed a tax
exemption form with the City of Troy on November 8, 2012. If not
allowed this real property tax exemption, START Children's Center,
Inc. would be severely impacted fiscally and critical services
provided to children in Rensselaer County would be endangered.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New Bill

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None to the state.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.

AN ACT to authorize the START Children's Center, Inc.  to  retroactively
  apply  for  a  real property tax exemption for certain property in the
  city of Troy, county of Rensselaer

  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 Troy is hereby authorized to accept from
START Children's Center, Inc., an application for  exemption  from  real
property  taxes  pursuant  to section 420-a of the real property tax law
for a portion of the 2012 assessment roll for the parcel owned  by  such
not-for-profit  entity which is located at 131 sixth avenue, in the city
of Troy, county of Rensselaer, otherwise known as lot 90.39 of  block  5
of  section 19.  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 Rensselaer county legislature,  may  make
appropriate correction to the subject rolls. If such exemption is grant-
ed  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.


 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
