        AN  ACT in relation to permitting Iglesia La Luz Del Mundo, Inc, to file
          an application for certain real property tax exemptions

          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
     3  from the Iglesia La Luz Del Mundo, Inc,  an  application  for  exemption
     4  from the real property taxes pursuant to section 420-a of the real prop-
     5  erty  tax  law  with  respect to the 2017-2018 school taxes and the 2018
     6  general tax roll for the parcels conveyed to such not-for-profit  organ-
     7  ization located in the town of Hempstead at 890 Front Street, Uniondale,
     8  otherwise  known  as  PARCEL  ID:    section 34, block 489, lot 416.  If
     9  accepted, the application shall be reviewed as if it had  been  received
    10  on  or  before  the  taxable  status  date established for such roll. If
    11  satisfied that such not-for-profit organization would otherwise be enti-
    12  tled to such exemption if such not-for-profit organization had filed  an
    13  application  for  exemption  by the appropriate taxable status date, the
    14  assessor, upon approval by the Nassau county legislature may make appro-
    15  priate correction to the subject roll. If such exemption is granted  and
    16  such  not-for-profit  organization, therefore, shall have paid any taxes
    17  with respect to the subject roll, the applicable governing body  or  tax
    18  department  may, in its sole discretion, provide for the refund of those
    19  taxes paid and cancel those taxes, fines, penalties, liens, or  interest
    20  remaining unpaid.
    21    § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
