BILL NUMBER:S6919A

TITLE OF BILL: An act authorizing New York 811, Inc. to receive
retroactive real property tax exempt status

PURPOSE: To grant the town assessor for the town of Islip the
authority to exempt New York 811, Inc., from liability for payment of
real property taxes due on the 2011-2012 assessment roll.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section One authorizes and directs the assessor of the town of Islip
to accept an application from New York 811, for exemption from real
property taxes pursuant to Section 420-a of the real property tax law
for the assessment roll as completed in 2011-2012 for their property
located in Bohemia. Upon satisfaction that New York 811, Inc., would
have otherwise been entitled to said exemption, the assessor may grant
this exemption from all taxation beginning with respect to this roll.
If the exemption is granted, New York 811, Inc. may be refunded any
taxes paid and any taxes, fines, penalties, liens or interest unpaid
may be cancelled through the sole discretion of the town board.

Section Two is the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: New York 811 is a nonprofit organization, established
in 1990. New York 811 serves as a communications link between utility
companies and individuals planning digging activity within the five
boroughs of New York City and Nassau and Suffolk Counties. By relaying
these requests, New York 811 protects one of the most vast, congested
and complicated underground infrastructures in the nation. In July
2012, New York 811 purchased real property located at 60 Knickerbocker
Avenue in Bohemia. The Islip Town Assessor has determined that, as a
nonprofit organization, New York 811 is entitled to a property tax
exemption. However, taxes have already been paid for the 2012 tax
year. This bill would allow New York 811, with permission from the
town board, to recover taxes paid from the date of conveyance in 2012,
through the 2012 taxable year.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill.

FISCAL IMPACT: None to the state.

EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately.

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

Bohemia,   otherwise   known   as   Suffolk   County   Tax   Map  Number
0500-215-1-29.024. If accepted, the application shall be reviewed as  if
it  had  been  received on or before the taxable status date established

such  exemption  if  such  organization  had  filed  an  application for
exemption by the appropriate taxable status date, the  assessor  of  the
town  of  Islip,  upon approval by the governing body or the tax depart-
ment, 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 paid by such
organization, and make appropriate correction of the subject roll.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
