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.



 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
