AN ACT in relation to permitting the  Northeastern  Association  of  the
  Blind  at  Albany, Inc. to file an application for a real property tax
  exemption

  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 City of Albany is hereby authorized to accept from
the Northeastern Association of the Blind at Albany, Inc. an application
for exemption from real property taxes pursuant to section 420-a of  the
real  property  tax  law  for  the  2018 assessment roll, for the parcel
located in the City of Albany at 301 Washington Avenue, otherwise  known
as  Albany  county  tax map section 65.71, block 3, lot 41. If accepted,
the application shall be reviewed as if  it  had  been  received  on  or
before  the taxable status dates established for such roll. If satisfied
that such organization would otherwise be entitled to such exemption  if
such  organization had acquired the subject property and filed an appli-
cation for exemption by the appropriate taxable status date, the  asses-
sor,  upon  approval  by  the  City  of Albany Common Council, may grant
exemption from all taxation and  make  appropriate  corrections  to  the
subject  roll. If such exemption is granted and such organization there-
fore shall have paid any tax with  respect  to  the  subject  roll,  the
governing  body  or  tax department may, in its sole discretion, provide
for the refund of those taxes paid and cancel any taxes,  fines,  penal-
ties, interest or tax liens remaining unpaid.
  § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.


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