AN ACT to authorize the assessor of the city of Schenectady to accept an
  application for a real property tax exemption for certain property  in
  the city of Schenectady, county of Schenectady


  Section 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary,
the assessor of the city of Schenectady is hereby authorized  to  accept
from the Excelsior Development Partners LLC an application for exemption
from  real property taxes pursuant to section 444-a of the real property
tax law, for the parcel known as the former Woodlawn School  located  at
103  Kings  Road,  city of Schenectady, county of Schenectady, otherwise
known as Schenectady county tax map section 60.38, block 2, lot 1.21. If
accepted, the application shall be reviewed as if it had  been  received
on  or before the taxable status date established for such rolls and the
alterations or rehabilitation of such property had been completed subse-
quent to the effective date of any local law or  resolution  authorizing
such exemption.
  If  satisfied  that  such  entity  would otherwise be entitled to such
exemption if such entity had filed an application for exemption  by  the
appropriate taxable status date, the assessor, upon approval by the city
of Schenectady, may make appropriate correction to the applicable rolls.
If such exemption is granted and such entity, 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.
