        AN ACT authorizing New York Kali Mandir, Inc.   to  receive  retroactive
          real property tax exempt status
          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  New York Kali Mandir, Inc. an application for exemption from real  prop-
     4  erty  taxes pursuant to section 420-a of the real property tax law for a
     5  portion of the 2017 general tax year and  a  portion  of  the  2016-2017
     6  school  tax  year,  and for all the 2018 general tax year and all of the
     7  2017-2018 school tax year assessment rolls, for the parcel  conveyed  to
     8  such  organization, with such parcel being located at 614 Seaman Avenue,
     9  in the hamlet of Baldwin, town of Hempstead, county of Nassau, otherwise
    10  known as Nassau county parcel ID section  54  block  018  lot  0061.  If
    11  accepted,  the  application shall be reviewed as if it had been received
    12  on or before the taxable status date established for such roll.
    13    If satisfied that such organization would  otherwise  be  entitled  to
    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  Nassau  county  legislature,  may  make  appropriate
    17  correction to the subject rolls. If such exemption is granted  and  such
    18  organization,  therefore,  shall  have  paid any tax with respect to the
    19  subject rolls, the applicable governing body or tax department  may,  in
    20  its  sole  discretion,  provide  for  the refund of those taxes paid and
    21  cancel those  taxes,  fines,  penalties,  liens  or  interest  remaining
    22  unpaid.
    23    § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
