AN  ACT  to  authorize Congregation Beth-El Sephardic Center to retroac-
  tively apply for a real property tax exemption for certain property in
  the neighborhood of Fresh Meadows, county of Queens

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary,
the assessor of the county of Queens is hereby authorized to accept from
Congregation Beth-El Sephardic Center, an application for exemption from
real  property  taxes pursuant to section 420-a of the real property tax
law for the 2015 assessment roll, and for the 2014-2015 school taxes for
the parcel owned by such not-for-profit entity which is located at  180-
01  Union  Turnpike,  in  the  neighborhood  of Fresh Meadows, county of
Queens.  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 New York city council, may make appropri-
ate  correction  to  the subject rolls. If such exemption is granted 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.
