   Section 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary,
 the assessor of the town of Riverhead is  hereby  authorized  to  accept
 from  Long  Island Science Center an application for exemption from real
 property taxes pursuant to section 420-a of the real  property  tax  law
 for  the  2019-2020  assessment  roll,  for the parcels conveyed to such
 organization, with such parcels being located in the town  of  Riverhead

 application  shall  be  reviewed as if it had been received on or before
 the taxable status date established for such roll.
   If satisfied that such organization would  otherwise  be  entitled  to

 exemption by the appropriate taxable status date, the  assessor  of  the
 town  of  Riverhead,  upon  approval by the town board of such town, may
 grant exemption from all taxation beginning on the date of  the  convey-
 ance  of  such parcel to such organization on the effective date of this
 act and cancel taxes, fines, penalties and  interest  remaining  unpaid,
 and  repay  any taxes, fines, penalties and interest paid by such organ-
 ization, and make appropriate correction of the subject roll.
   § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
