AN ACT to authorize the Pilgrim Wesleyan Church to  retroactively  apply
  for  a real property tax exemption for certain property 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,  county of Rockland, is hereby
authorized to accept from the Pilgrim Wesleyan Church an application  or
renewal  application  for exemption from real property taxes pursuant to
section 420-a of the real property tax law for the 2008-2009  assessment
rolls,  for  the  parcel  owned  by  such not-for-profit church which is
located at 57-59 Main Street, village of Spring Valley in  the  town  of
Ramapo,  county of Rockland, otherwise known as Rockland county tax map,
section 57.39, block 1, lot 4.  If accepted, the application or  renewal
application  shall  be  reviewed as if it had been received on or before
the taxable status date established for such rolls.
  If satisfied that such not-for-profit organization would otherwise  be
entitled to such exemption if such not-for-profit organization had filed
an  application  or renewal application for exemption by the appropriate
taxable status date, the assessor, upon  approval  by  the  Ramapo  town
board,  may  make  appropriate  correction to the subject rolls. If such
exemption is granted and such organization, therefore, shall  have  paid
any tax with respect to the subject rolls, the applicable governing body
or tax department may, in its sole discretion, provide for the refund of
those  taxes  paid  and  cancel those taxes, fines, penalties, liens, 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.
