 Introduced  by Sen. GAUGHRAN -- read twice and ordered printed, and when
   printed to be committed to the Committee on Local Government
 AN ACT authorizing the village  of  Upper  Brookville  to  retroactively
   apply for a real property tax exemption for certain property
   Section 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary,
 the assessor of the county of Nassau is hereby authorized to accept from
 the  Incorporated  Village  of  Upper  Brookville  an  application   for
 exemption  from  real property taxes pursuant to section 406 of the real
 property tax law with respect to the 2020-2021  assessment  roll  for  a
 portion  of  the 2020-2021 school and all of the 2021 general taxes, for
 the parcel conveyed to such  municipal  corporation,  with  such  parcel
 having an address of 24 Wolver Hollow Road, hamlet of Glen Head, town of
 Oyster  Bay,  county of Nassau, otherwise known as Nassau County Section
 24 Block C Lot 01440. 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 municipal corporation would otherwise be enti-
 tled to such exemption if such municipal corporation had filed an appli-
 cation for exemption by the appropriate taxable status date, the  asses-
 sor, 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 municipal corporation, therefore,
 shall have paid any tax with respect to the subject rolls, the  applica-
 ble  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, 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.
