AN  ACT  to  authorize the Legal Aid Society of Northeastern New York to
  retroactively apply for a real  property  tax  exemption  for  certain
  properties in the city of Saratoga Springs

  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 Saratoga is hereby  authorized  to  accept
from  the  Legal Aid Society of Northeastern New York an application for
exemption from real property taxes pursuant to section 420-a of the real
property tax law for the  2014-2015  assessment  roll  with  respect  to
school  taxes  and  the 2015 assessment roll with respect to the general
taxes, for the parcel owned by such not-for-profit association which  is
located  at  40  New  Street, in the city of Saratoga Springs, county of
Saratoga.  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
applications or renewal applications for exemptions by  the  appropriate
taxable  status date, the assessor, upon approval by the Saratoga county
legislature, may make appropriate correction to the  subject  rolls.  If
such  exemption  is granted and such organization, therefore, shall have
paid any taxes with respect to the subject rolls, the applicable govern-
ing 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.
