 AN ACT in relation to authorizing the assessor of the town of Smithtown,
   county of Suffolk, to accept from the New Horizons Counseling  Center,
   Inc., an application for exemption from real property taxes

   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 town of Smithtown,  county  of  Suffolk,  is  hereby
 authorized  to  accept from the New Horizons Counseling Center, Inc., an
 application for exemption from real property taxes pursuant  to  section
 420-a  of  the  real property tax law, with respect to the 2019 and 2020
 assessment rolls, for the parcel owned by such organization,  with  such
 parcel  being located at 1056 W. Jericho Turnpike, in the town of Smith-
 town, county of Suffolk, otherwise  known  as  Suffolk  county  tax  map
 section  094.00  block  03.00  lot 002.003. If accepted, the application
 shall be reviewed as if it had been received on or  before  the  taxable
 status date established for such rolls.
   If  satisfied  that  such  organization would otherwise be entitled to
 such exemption  if  such  organization  had  filed  an  application  for
 exemption  by  the  appropriate  taxable status date, the assessor, upon
 approval by the Smithtown town board, may make appropriate correction to
 the subject rolls. If such exemption is granted and  such  organization,
 therefore,  shall  have  paid any tax with respect to the subject rolls,
 the applicable governing  body  or  tax  department  may,  in  its  sole
 discretion,  provide for the refund of those taxes paid and cancel those
 taxes, fines, penalties, liens or interest remaining unpaid.
   ยง 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
