 AN ACT in relation to authorizing the assessor of the town  of  Brookha-
   ven,  county  of Suffolk, to accept an application for a real property
   tax exemption from the International Baptist Church

   Section 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary,
 the  assessor  of  the  town of Brookhaven, county of Suffolk, is hereby
 authorized to accept from the International Baptist Church, an  applica-
 tion  for  exemption from real property taxes pursuant to section 462 of
 the real property tax law with respect to the 2020-2021 assessment roll,
 for the parcel owned by such organization  located  at  5  John  Vincent
 Court,  town  of  Brookhaven,  county  of Suffolk, District 0200 Section
 470.00, Block 01.00, Lot 004.006.   If accepted, the  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
 such  exemption  if  such  organization  had  filed  an  application for
 exemption by the appropriate taxable status  date,  the  assessor,  upon
 approval  by  the  Brookhaven  town  board, may grant exemption from all
 taxation and make appropriate corrections to the subject roll.  If  such
 exemption is granted and such organization therefore shall have paid any
 tax  with  respect to the subject roll, the applicable governing body or
 tax department may, in its sole discretion, provide for  the  refund  of
 the  taxes  paid, along with any fines or penalties paid, and cancel any
 taxes, fines, penalties, 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.
