AN ACT to authorize the assessor of the town of Hempstead, county of
Nassau, to accept from Mercy Medical Center an application for
exemption from real property taxes
The People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and Assem-bly, do enact as follows:
1 Section 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary,
2 the assessor of the town of Hempstead, county of Nassau, is hereby
3 authorized to accept from Mercy Medical Center an application for
4 exemption from real property taxes pursuant to section 420-a of the real
5 property tax law for the 2018-2019 school and the 2018 and 2019 general
6 assessment rolls, for the parcel owned by such organization and located
7 at 30 East Sunrise Highway, in the village of Valley Stream, otherwise
8 known as Nassau county tax map section 39, block 001, lot 0007. If
9 accepted, the application shall be reviewed as if it had been received
10 on or before the taxable status dates established for such rolls. If
11 satisfied that such organization would otherwise be entitled to such
12 exemption if such organization had acquired the subject property and
13 filed an application for exemption by the appropriate taxable status
14 date, the assessor, upon approval by the town board, may grant exemption
15 from all taxation and make appropriate corrections to the subject rolls.
16 If such exemption is granted and such organization therefore shall have
17 paid any tax with respect to the subject roll, the governing body or tax
18 department may, in its sole discretion, provide for the refund of those
19 taxes paid and cancel any taxes, fines, penalties, interest or tax liens
20 remaining unpaid.
21 § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
