BILL NUMBER:S6812

TITLE OF BILL: An act to authorize Hands Across Long Island, Inc. to
retroactively apply for a real property tax exemption for certain
property in the village of Lynbrook, town of Hempstead, county of
Nassau

PURPOSE: To authorize Hands Across Long Island, Inc. to apply for a
retroactive real property tax exemption for a certain parcel in the
village of Lynbrook, in Nassau County.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1. The assessor of Nassau County is
authorized to accept an application for real property tax exemption
from Hands Across Long Island, Inc. pursuant to section 420-a of the
real property tax law. If accepted, the application shall be reviewed
as if it had been received on or before the taxable status date
established.

Section 2 is the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: Hands Across Long Island is a multi-service
organization managed and operated by, and for, psychiatric survivors.
According to their website, Hands Across Long Island is the largest
and most successful peer-run, multi-service mental health organization
in New York State, helping over 3,500 consumers each year. This
legislation would alleviate the financial strain on Hands Across Long
Island by allowing the not-for-profit to apply for a real property tax
exemption and thus allocate those monies toward better serving the
community.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New legislation.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: To be determined.

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
  village of Lynbrook, town of Hempstead, county of Nassau

  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
Hands  Across  Long Island, 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  2013 assessment roll, and for a portion of the
2013-2014 school taxes for the parcel owned by such not-for-profit enti-
ty which is located at 30-34 Park Place, in  the  village  of  Lynbrook,
town  of  Hempstead,  county of Nassau, otherwise known by Nassau county
tax identification number: 11-3088310.   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  Nassau  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.
