AN ACT to authorize the town  of  Ramapo  to  file  an  application  for
  exemption  from  real  property  taxes  for  a  certain parcel of land
  located in the town of Ramapo, county of Rockland


  Section 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary,
the  assessor of the town of Ramapo, is hereby authorized to accept from
the town of Ramapo, an application  for  exemption  from  real  property
taxes  pursuant to section 406 of the real property tax law for the 2006
assessment roll, for the parcel owned by such town, which is located  in
the town of Ramapo at Route 17, otherwise known as: section 39.17, block
1,  lot  5. If accepted, such application shall be reviewed as if it had
been received on or before  the  applicable  deadline  for  filing  such
applications established for such roll.
  If satisfied that such corporation: (i) acquired title to the property
for  which  it  seeks  exemption and (ii) would otherwise be entitled to
such exemption if such town had filed an application  for  exemption  by
the applicable deadline for filing such applications, the assessor, upon
approval  by  the town board of town of Ramapo, may grant exemption from
all taxation beginning with the date of acquisition of the  property  by
such  town  and  make  appropriate  correction  to  the subject roll. If
exemption is granted and such town therefore 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.
