Introduced  by Sen. PHILLIPS -- read twice and ordered printed, and when
  printed to be committed to the Committee on Rules

AN ACT to authorize the assessor of the county of Nassau  to  accept  an
  application  for  exemption  from  real  property  taxes from Spectrum
  Designs Foundation Ltd. for a certain parcel in  the  hamlet  of  Port
  Washington in the town of North Hempstead


  Section 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary,
the assessor of the county of Nassau is hereby authorized to accept from
Spectrum Designs Foundation Ltd. an application for exemption from  real
property  taxes  pursuant  to section 420-a of the real property tax law
for a portion of the 2016-2017 school and 2017 general tax roll and  all
of  the  2017-2018  school  and  2018  general  tax  roll for the parcel
conveyed to such organization located at 366 Main Street, hamlet of Port
Washington, town of North Hempstead, county of Nassau,  otherwise  known
as Nassau county parcel ID section 5 block 51 lot 117.
  If  accepted,  such  application  shall  be reviewed as if it had been
received on or before the taxable  status  dates  established  for  such
rolls.  If satisfied that such non-profit would otherwise be entitled to
such exemption if such non-profit had filed an application for exemption
by the appropriate taxable status dates, the assessor, upon approval  of
the Nassau county legislature, may grant exemption from all taxation and
make  appropriate corrections to the subject rolls. If such exemption is
granted and such non-profit therefore  shall  have  paid  any  tax  with
respect  to the subject rolls, the governing body or tax department may,
in its sole discretion, provide for the refund of those taxes  paid  and
cancel  any  taxes,  fines,  penalties,  interest or tax liens remaining
  § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.

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