AN ACT to authorize Bethel A.M.E. Church to file an application for real
  property tax exemption

  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 Schenectady is hereby authorized to accept
from Bethel A.M.E. Church an application for exemption from real proper-
ty taxes pursuant to section 420-a of the real property tax law for  the
2007  assessment roll for the parcel owned by such not-for-profit organ-
ization which is located in the city of Schenectady, county of  Schenec-
tady  at  540 Mumford Street, otherwise known as section 49.31, block 3,
lot 23.1. If accepted, such application shall be reviewed as if  it  had
been  received on or before the taxable status date established for such
roll.
  If satisfied that Bethel A.M.E. Church would otherwise be entitled  to
such  exemption  if  it  had  filed  an application for exemption by the
appropriate taxable status date, the assessor of the city of Schenectady
may upon approval by the city council of such city, grant exemption from
taxation based on the 2007 assessment roll and owing  by  such  not-for-
profit  organization  on the effective date of this act, and make appro-
priate correction of the subject roll. If such exemption is granted  and
if such not-for-profit organization shall have paid any tax with respect
to  the  subject  roll, the governing body or tax department may, in its
sole discretion, provide for the refund of those taxes paid  and  cancel
taxes, fines, penalties 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.
                                                           LBD05098-02-9
