AN ACT to authorize Jain Samaj of Long  Island,  Inc.  to  retroactively
  apply  for  a  real property tax exemption for certain property in the
  hamlet of Hicksville, 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
Jain  Samaj  of Long Island, Inc. an application for exemption from real
property taxes pursuant to section 420-a of the real  property  tax  law
for  part  of  the 2014 assessment roll and for the 2015 assessment roll
for the parcel owned by such not-for-profit entity which is  located  at
158  Plainview  Road,  in  the hamlet of Hicksville, town of Oyster Bay,
county of Nassau, otherwise known as Nassau county tax map  section  12,
block 242, lot 190. 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.

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