AN ACT in relation to authorizing the Sikh Association  of  the  Capital
  District,  Inc.  to  file  an  application  for  a  real  property tax


  Section 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary,
the  assessor  of  the  town of East Greenbush, county of Rensselaer, is
hereby authorized to accept from the Sikh  Association  of  the  Capital
District,  Inc.  an  application  for exemption from real property taxes
pursuant to section 420-a of the real property tax law for the 2017  and
2018  assessment  rolls,  for  the  parcels  located in the town of East
Greenbush at 8 Michigan Avenue, tax map ID 166.10-9-8 and at 11 Michigan
Avenue, tax map ID 166.10-8-1. 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 not-for-profit organization would otherwise  be
entitled  to  such  exemption  if  such  not-for-profit organization has
acquired the subject property and filed an application for exemption  by
the  appropriate taxable status date, the assessor, upon approval by the
town board of East Greenbush, may grant exemption from all taxation  and
make  appropriate  corrections to the subject roll. If such exemption is
granted and such not-for-profit organization therefore shall  have  paid
any tax with respect to the subject roll, the governing body may, at its
sole  discretion,  provide for the refund of those taxes paid and cancel
any taxes, fines, penalties, 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.
