BILL NUMBER: S716

TITLE OF BILL :
An act to authorize Vaishnav Temple of New York to file an application
for exemption from real property taxes for a certain parcel of land
located in the village of New Hyde Park, county of Nassau


PURPOSE :
To allow Vaishnav Temple of New York the opportunity to apply for
retroactive tax exemption.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS :
Section one authorizes the Assessors of the Village of New Hyde Park
and the County of Nassau to accept from Vaishnav Temple of New York, a
not-for-profit organization, an application for exemption from real
property taxes for the parcel owned by such entity at 100 Lakeville
Road in New Hyde Park. If accepted, the application shall be reviewed
as if it had been received on or before the taxable status date
established for such roll. The Village of New Hyde Park Board of
Trustees and the Nassau County Legislature have the sale discretion to
provide for the refund of those taxes paid by the Vaishnav Temple and
cancel taxes, fines, penalties, liens or interest remaining unpaid.

Section two is the effective date.

EXISTING LAW :
Existing law authorizes tax exemptions to be granted after the taxable
status date has passed if a bill chaptered authorizing an assessor to
accept a late application.

JUSTIFICATION :
The Vaishnav Temple would have been entitled to the property tax
exemption if it had filed the application for the exemption by the
appropriate status date. Since the Vaishnav Temple had purchased the
property from a religious nonprofit organization, the taxable status
of the property did not change.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY :
2007: Referred to Rules 2008: Referred to Local Government

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS :
None to the State.

EFFECTIVE DATE :
This act shall take effect immediately.
