BILL NUMBER: S1171

TITLE OF BILL :

An act to authorize Schenectady Day Nursery, Inc. to file an
application for real property tax exemption in the city of Schenectady


PURPOSE :

This bill permits the City of Schenectady to accept late applications
for certain real property tax exemptions for the 2007 assessment roll,
and, if found eligible, to grant the exemptions and refund any excess
property taxes paid by the tax-exempt organization.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS :

The bill permits the Schenectady City Assessor to accept and evaluate
applications for tax exemptions for the 2007 assessment roll even
though the deadline for these applications has passed, and, if the
Assessor finds that the entities and properties are indeed tax exempt,
permits the City to grant the exemptions and refund any excess
property taxes already paid.

EXISTING LAW :

Under current law, there is no authority for the Assessor to accept
and evaluate late applications. The owner of property which would be
exempt pursuant to section 420-a of the Real Property Tax Law may,
however, seek judicial review pursuant to article seven of the Real
Property Tax law or article 78 of the Civil Practice Law and Rules.

JUSTIFICATION :

This legislation was introduced following discussions between
officials of the City of Schenectady and representatives of several
tax-exempt organizations which own property in the City. In the year
2007, an unusual number of tax exempt organizations failed, for one
reason or another, to tile timely applications for continuation of
their real property tax exemptions.

EFFECTIVE DATE :
Immediately.

make appropriate correction of the subject roll. If  such  exemption  is
granted  and if such not-for-profit organization shall have paid any tax
