TITLE OF BILL: An act relating to the Westbury water district in the
county of Nassau


To allow the Westbury Water District, a municipal corporation, to file
retroactively for a tax exemption for property which would have
received such exemption if a timely application had been filed before
the applicable Nassau county taxable status dates.


Section one authorizes the assessor of the County of Nassau to accept
from the Westbury Water District an application for exemption for real
property taxes pursuant to Real Property Tax Law Section 410 for the
2010-2011 assessment roll with respect to the pro-rata share of the
2010-2011 school taxes and the pro-rata share of the 2011 general
taxes; and for the 2011-2012 assessment roll with respect to the
2011-2012 school taxes and the 2012 general taxes, for the parcel
located in the Town of North Hempstead and known as section 10, Block
22, Lots 657, 658, and 659 on the Nassau County Land and Tax Map. If
accepted, the application shall be reviewed as if it had been received
on or before the taxable status date established for such roll, and
any exemptions shall be granted for the period of each respective tax
year commencing on and after July 21, 2011, the date of acquisition of
the property, and continuing to and including the end of each such tax

Section 2 sets an immediate effective date.


Existing law authorizes tax exemptions to be granted after the taxable
status date has passed if a bill chaptered authorizing an assessor to
accept a late application.


This legislation would permit the Westbury Water District to seek
retroactive exempt status for the portions of those tax years for
which assessments already were fixed.


This is a new bill.


None to the state.


This act shall take effect immediately.

AN ACT relating to the Westbury water district in the county of Nassau


  Section 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary,
the assessor of the county of Nassau is hereby authorized to accept from
the  Westbury water district applications for exemptions from real prop-
erty taxes pursuant to section 410 of the real property tax law for  the
2010-2011  and  2011-2012  assessment  rolls with respect to part of the
2010-2011 school tax and part of the 2011 general tax, and with  respect
to  all  of the 2011-2012 school tax and all of the 2012 general tax for
the parcels owned by such water district corporation which  are  located
at  350  Madison  Street,  Westbury,  New  York in the county of Nassau,
otherwise known as Nassau county tax map section  10,  block  220,  lots
657,  658 and 659. If accepted, the applications shall be reviewed as if
they had been received on or before the taxable status date  established
for such rolls.
  If  satisfied  that such water district would otherwise be entitled to
such exemptions if such water district had acquired the subject  proper-
ties by the appropriate taxable status date, the assessor, upon approval
by the Nassau county legislature, may make appropriate correction to the
subject  rolls.  If such exemptions are granted and such water district,
therefore, shall have paid any taxes 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.
