TITLE OF BILL: An act authorizing New York 811, Inc. to receive retro-
active real property tax exempt status


To grant the town assessor for the town of Islip the authority to exempt
New York 811, Inc., from liability for payment of real property taxes
due on the 2012-2013 assessment roll


Section One authorizes and directs the assessor of the town of Islip to
accept an application from New York 811, for exemption from real proper-
ty taxes pursuant to Section 420-a of the real property tax law for the
assessment roll as completed in 2012-2013 for their property located in
Bohemia. Upon satisfaction that New York 811, Inc., would have otherwise
been entitled to said exemption, the assessor may grant this exemption
from all taxation beginning with respect to this roll. If the exemption
is granted, New York 811, Inc. may be refunded any taxes paid and any
taxes, fines, penalties, liens or interest unpaid may be cancelled
through the sole discretion of the town board.

Section Two is the effective date.


New York 811 is a nonprofit organization, established in 1990. New York
811 serves as a communications link between utility companies and indi-
viduals planning digging activity within the five boroughs of New York
City and Nassau and Suffolk Counties. By relaying these requests, New
York 811 protects one of the most vast, congested and complicated under-
ground infrastructures in the nation.

In 2012, New York 811 purchased reel property located at 60 Knickerbock-
er Avenue in Bohemia, The Islip Town Assessor has determined that, as a
nonprofit organization, New York 811 is entitled to a property tax
exemption. However, taxes have already been paid for the 2012-2013 tax
year. This bill would allow New York 811, with permission from the town
board, to recover taxes paid from the date of conveyance in 2012,
through the 2013 taxable year.


New bill.


None to the state.
