BILL NUMBER:S4766 TITLE OF BILL: An act to authorize Bethel A.M.E.

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.

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.
