AN ACT to authorize Schenectady Hindu Temple and Community  Services  to
  file applications for real property tax exemptions


  Section 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary,
the assessor of the city of Schenectady is hereby authorized  to  accept
from  Schenectady  Hindu Temple and Community Services, applications for
exemptions from real property taxes pursuant to  section  420-a  of  the
real  property  tax  law  for the 2006 and 2007 assessment rolls for the
parcels owned by Schenectady Hindu Temple and Community Services located
in the city of Schenectady at 1052 Pleasant Street, Schenectady,  other-
wise known as section 49.55, block 2, lot 1.11.  If accepted, the appli-
cations  shall be reviewed as if they had been received on or before the
taxable status date established for such rolls. If satisfied that  Sche-
nectady  Hindu Temple and Community Services would otherwise be entitled
to such exemptions if it had filed the applications for  the  exemptions
by  the  appropriate  taxable  status dates, the assessor of the city of
Schenectady may upon approval by the city council of  such  city,  grant
exemptions from taxation based on the 2006 and 2007 assessment rolls and
owing  by such not-for-profit organization on the effective date of this
act, and make appropriate correction of the  subject  rolls.    If  such
exemptions  are  granted  and  if such not-for-profit organization shall
have paid any tax with respect to the subject rolls, 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 remain-
ing 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.
