AN ACT in relation to authorizing Cong. K'hal  Yereim  of  Woodridge  to
  file an application for a retroactive real property tax exemption


  Section 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary,
the assessor of the town of Ramapo is hereby authorized to  accept  from
Cong.  K'hal  Yereim  of  Woodridge,  a  not-for-profit organization, an
application for exemption from real property taxes pursuant  to  section
420-a  of  the  real  property  tax  law for the 2016-2017 and 2017-2018
assessment rolls, for a parcel owned by such organization located in the
hamlet of Monsey in the town of Ramapo  located  at  100  College  Road,
otherwise  known  as Rockland county tax map section 49.18, block 1, lot
2. If accepted, such application shall be reviewed as  if  it  had  been
received  on  or  before  the  taxable status dates established for such
  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
town board of Ramapo, may grant exemption from  all  taxation  and  make
appropriate  corrections  to  the  subject  rolls.  If such exemption is
granted and such non-profit  therefor  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.
