1 Section 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary,
2 the assessor of the town of Islip, county of Suffolk, is hereby author-
3 ized to accept from the Iglesia de Jesucristo Palabra Miel Santiago
4 Atitlan Long Island N.Y. an application for exemption from real property
5 taxes pursuant to section 420-a of the real property tax law, with
6 respect to the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 assessment rolls for the parcel
7 owned by such organization, with such parcel being located at 49 North

9 ty of Suffolk, otherwise known as Suffolk county tax map number
10 0500-118.00-03.00-025.001. If accepted, the application shall be
11 reviewed as if it had been received on or before the taxable status date
12 established for such rolls.

14 such exemption if such organization had filed an application for
15 exemption by the appropriate taxable status date, the assessor, upon
16 approval by the town board of Islip, may make appropriate correction to
17 the subject rolls. If such exemption is granted and such organization,
18 therefore, shall have paid any tax with respect to the subject rolls,
19 the applicable governing body or tax department may, in its sole
20 discretion, provide for the refund of those taxes paid and cancel those
21 taxes, fines, penalties, liens or interest remaining unpaid.
22 § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
