Introduced  by  Sen.  KAPLAN -- read twice and ordered printed, and when
  printed to be committed to the Committee on Local Government

AN ACT to authorize the assessor of the county of Nassau  to  accept  an
  application  for  exemption from real property taxes from Lubavitch of
  Roslyn for a certain parcel in the hamlet of  Roslyn  Heights  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
Lubavitch of Roslyn 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 general taxes and for a  portion  of  the  2016-2017
school  tax  roll  and  2017 general tax roll for the parcel conveyed to
such organization located  at  77  Powerhouse  Road,  hamlet  of  Roslyn
Heights,  town  of North Hempstead, county of Nassau, otherwise known as
Nassau county parcel ID section 7 block 47 lot 207.
  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.
