          application  for  exemption from real property taxes from Iglesia Long

          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  Iglesia  Long  Island Para Cristo Inc. an application for exemption from
     4  real property taxes pursuant to section 420-a of the real  property  tax
     5  law  for a portion of the 2016-2017 school and the 2017 general tax roll
     6  for the parcel located in the town of Hempstead at 24 James  LL  Burrell
     7  Ave.,  Hempstead, otherwise known as: section 34, block 248, lot 109 and
     8  110.  If accepted, such application shall be reviewed as if it had  been
     9  received  on  or  before  the  taxable status dates established for such
    10  rolls. If satisfied that such non-profit would otherwise be entitled  to
    11  such exemption if such non-profit had filed an application for exemption
    12  by  the appropriate taxable status dates, the assessor, upon approval of
    13  the Nassau county legislature, may grant exemption from all taxation and
    14  make appropriate corrections to the subject rolls. If such exemption  is
    15  granted  and  such  non-profit  therefore  shall  have paid any tax with
    16  respect to the subject rolls, the governing body or tax department  may,
    17  in  its  sole discretion, provide for the refund of those taxes paid and
    18  cancel any taxes, fines, penalties,  interest  or  tax  liens  remaining
    19  unpaid.
    20    § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
