AN ACT to authorize Temple Israel to  retroactively  apply  for  a  real
  property  tax  exemption  for  certain  property  in  the  village  of
  Lawrence, 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
Temple  Israel,  an  application  for exemption from real property taxes
pursuant to section 420-a of the real property  tax  law  for  the  2013
assessment roll, and for the 2012-2013 school taxes for the parcel owned
by such not-for-profit entity which is located at 140 Central Avenue, in
the  village  of  Lawrence,  county of Nassau, otherwise known as Nassau
county section 40, block 91, lot 9.  If accepted, the application  shall
be  reviewed  as if it had been received on or before the taxable status
date established for such rolls.
  If satisfied that such not-for-profit organization would otherwise  be
entitled to such exemption if such not-for-profit organization had filed
an application for exemption 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 exemption is grant-
ed and such organization,  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.
