 AN ACT in relation to extending the time to file an application for  the
   STAR exemption until September first, two thousand twenty-one
   Section 1. Notwithstanding any provision of law to the  contrary,  the
 filing deadline for filing an initial application for the STAR exemption
 authorized by section 425 of the real property tax law for 2021 tax roll
 is  hereby  extended until September 1, 2021.  Each application received
 by a local assessor on or before such date shall be reviewed  as  if  it
 had  been  received on or before the applicable deadline for filing such
 applications established for such roll, and if satisfied  the  applicant
 would otherwise be entitled to such an exemption had the application for
 exemption  been  filed  by  the applicable deadline, the assessor, shall
 grant the exemption from applicable taxation by making  any  appropriate
 corrections  to  the  subject  roll. However, if an exemption is granted
 subsequent to the payment of any subject tax, the local  governing  body
 or tax department may, in its sole discretion, provide for the refund of
 those  taxes paid and cancel taxes, fines, penalties or interest remain-
 ing unpaid.
   § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
