AN ACT to authorize the Rock Apostolic 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 Rock Apostolic 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 and 2009 assess-
ment  rolls, for the parcel owned by such not-for-profit church which is
located at 33 Church 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 52.  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.
