 Introduced  by Sen. GAUGHRAN -- read twice and ordered printed, and when
   printed to be committed to the Committee on Rules
 AN ACT authorizing St. Mark Coptic Church Center 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
 St. Mark Coptic Church Center an application  for  exemption  from  real
 property  taxes  pursuant  to section 420-a of the real property tax law
 with respect to the 2019-2020  and  2020-2021  assessment  rolls  for  a
 portion  of  the  2019-2020  school taxes, a portion of the 2019 general
 taxes and all of the 2020 general taxes, for the parcel conveyed to such
 organization, with such parcel having an address of  32  Woodbury  Road,
 hamlet  of  Woodbury,  town  of  Oyster Bay, county of Nassau, otherwise
 known as Nassau County  parcel  ID  Section  14  Block  B  Lot  240.  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  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 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, inter-
 est 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.
