                STATE OF NEW YORK
                    IN SENATE
                                     April 18, 2018
        Introduced  by  Sen.  HANNON -- read twice and ordered printed, and when
          printed to be committed to the Committee on Local Government
        AN ACT to authorize Maranatha Grace Church to file an application,  with
          the county of Nassau, for a retroactive real property tax exemption
          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 county of Nassau is hereby authorized to accept from
     3  Maranatha Grace Church an application for exemption from  real  property
     4  taxes  pursuant  to  section  420-a  of  the real property tax law for a
     5  portion of the 2016-17 school and the 2017 general tax roll and  all  of
     6  the  2017-18 school and the 2018 general tax roll for the parcel located
     7  in the town of Hempstead at 982 Front Street, Uniondale, otherwise known
     8  as: section 34, block 502, lot 693 and 694. If accepted,  such  applica-
     9  tion shall be reviewed as if it had been received on or before the taxa-
    10  ble  status  dates  established  for  such rolls. If satisfied that such
    11  church would otherwise be entitled to such exemption if such church  had
    12  filed  an  application  for  exemption by the appropriate taxable status
    13  dates, the assessor, upon approval of the Nassau county legislature, may
    14  grant exemption from all taxation and make  appropriate  corrections  to
    15  the  subject  rolls. If such exemption is granted and such church there-
    16  fore shall have paid any tax with respect  to  the  subject  rolls,  the
    17  governing  body  or  tax department may, in its sole discretion, provide
    18  for the refund of those taxes paid and cancel any taxes,  fines,  penal-
    19  ties, interest or tax liens remaining unpaid.
    20    § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
         EXPLANATION--Matter in italics (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                              [ ] is old law to be omitted.
