MR. SPEAKER:

    I move that Engrossed Senate Bill 1 be amended to read as follows:

SOURCE: Page 33, line 24; (04)MO000162.33. -->     Page 33, delete lines 24 through 42, begin a new paragraph and insert:
SOURCE: IC 6-1.1-18.5-3; (04)MO000162.21. -->     "SECTION 21. IC 6-1.1-18.5-3, AS AMENDED BY P.L.1-2003, SECTION 25, IS AMENDED TO READ AS FOLLOWS [EFFECTIVE UPON PASSAGE]: Sec. 3. (a) Except as otherwise provided in this chapter and IC 6-3.5-8-12, a civil taxing unit that is treated as not being located in an adopting county under section 4 of this chapter may not impose an ad valorem property tax levy for an ensuing calendar year that exceeds the amount determined in the last STEP of the following STEPS:
        STEP ONE: Add the civil taxing unit's maximum permissible ad valorem property tax levy for the preceding calendar year to the part of the civil taxing unit's certified share, if any, that was used to reduce the civil taxing unit's ad valorem property tax levy under STEP EIGHT of subsection (b) for that preceding calendar year.
        STEP TWO: Multiply Determine the result of:
            (1)
the amount determined in STEP ONE multiplied by the amount determined in the last STEP of section 2(b) of this chapter; plus
            (2) fifty percent (50%) of the difference between:
                (A) the growth in the civil taxing unit's maximum permissible ad valorem property tax levy during the three (3) preceding calendar years; minus
                (B) the growth in the civil taxing unit's actual ad valorem property tax levy during the three (3) preceding calendar years.

        STEP THREE: Determine the lesser of one and fifteen hundredths (1.15) or the quotient (rounded to the nearest ten-thousandth (0.0001)), of the assessed value of all taxable property subject to the civil taxing unit's ad valorem property tax levy for the ensuing calendar year, divided by the assessed value of all taxable property that is subject to the civil taxing unit's ad valorem property tax levy for the ensuing calendar year and that is contained within the geographic area that was subject to the civil taxing unit's ad valorem property tax levy in the preceding calendar year.
        STEP FOUR: Determine the greater of the amount determined in STEP THREE or one (1).
        STEP FIVE: Multiply the amount determined in STEP TWO by the amount determined in STEP FOUR.
        STEP SIX: Add the amount determined under STEP TWO to the amount determined under subsection (c).
        STEP SEVEN: Determine the greater of the amount determined under STEP FIVE or the amount determined under STEP SIX.
    (b) Except as otherwise provided in this chapter and IC 6-3.5-8-12, a civil taxing unit that is treated as being located in an adopting county under section 4 of this chapter may not impose an ad valorem property tax levy for an ensuing calendar year that exceeds the amount determined in the last STEP of the following STEPS:
        STEP ONE: Add the civil taxing unit's maximum permissible ad valorem property tax levy for the preceding calendar year to the part of the civil taxing unit's certified share, if any, used to reduce the civil taxing unit's ad valorem property tax levy under STEP EIGHT of this subsection for that preceding calendar year.
        STEP TWO: Multiply Determine the result of:
            (1)
the amount determined in STEP ONE multiplied by the amount determined in the last STEP of section 2(b) of this chapter; plus
            (2) fifty percent (50%) of the difference between:
                (A) the growth in the civil taxing unit's maximum permissible ad valorem property tax levy during the three (3) preceding calendar years; minus
                (B) the growth in the civil taxing unit's actual ad valorem property tax levy during the three (3) preceding calendar years.

        STEP THREE: Determine the lesser of one and fifteen hundredths (1.15) or the quotient of the assessed value of all taxable property subject to the civil taxing unit's ad valorem property tax levy for the ensuing calendar year divided by the assessed value of all

taxable property that is subject to the civil taxing unit's ad valorem property tax levy for the ensuing calendar year and that is contained within the geographic area that was subject to the civil taxing unit's ad valorem property tax levy in the preceding calendar year.
        STEP FOUR: Determine the greater of the amount determined in STEP THREE or one (1).
        STEP FIVE: Multiply the amount determined in STEP TWO by the amount determined in STEP FOUR.
        STEP SIX: Add the amount determined under STEP TWO to the amount determined under subsection (c).
        STEP SEVEN: Determine the greater of the amount determined under STEP FIVE or the amount determined under STEP SIX.
        STEP EIGHT: Subtract the amount determined under STEP FIVE of subsection (e) from the amount determined under STEP SEVEN of this subsection.
    (c) If a civil taxing unit in the immediately preceding calendar year provided an area outside its boundaries with services on a contractual basis and in the ensuing calendar year that area has been annexed by the civil taxing unit, the amount to be entered under STEP SIX of subsection (a) or STEP SIX of subsection (b), as the case may be, equals the amount paid by the annexed area during the immediately preceding calendar year for services that the civil taxing unit must provide to that area during the ensuing calendar year as a result of the annexation. In all other cases, the amount to be entered under STEP SIX of subsection (a) or STEP SIX of subsection (b), as the case may be, equals zero (0).
    (d) This subsection applies only to civil taxing units located in a county having a county adjusted gross income tax rate for resident county taxpayers (as defined in IC 6-3.5-1.1-1) of one percent (1%) as of January 1 of the ensuing calendar year. For each civil taxing unit, the amount to be added to the amount determined in subsection (e), STEP FOUR, is determined using the following formula:
        STEP ONE: Multiply the civil taxing unit's maximum permissible ad valorem property tax levy for the preceding calendar year by two percent (2%).
        STEP TWO: For the determination year, the amount to be used as the STEP TWO amount is the amount determined in subsection (f) for the civil taxing unit. For each year following the determination year the STEP TWO amount is the lesser of:
            (A) the amount determined in STEP ONE; or
            (B) the amount determined in subsection (f) for the civil taxing unit.
        STEP THREE: Determine the greater of:
            (A) zero (0); or
            (B) the civil taxing unit's certified share for the ensuing

calendar year minus the greater of:
                (i) the civil taxing unit's certified share for the calendar year that immediately precedes the ensuing calendar year; or
                (ii) the civil taxing unit's base year certified share.
        STEP FOUR: Determine the greater of:
            (A) zero (0); or
            (B) the amount determined in STEP TWO minus the amount determined in STEP THREE.
Add the amount determined in STEP FOUR to the amount determined in subsection (e), STEP THREE, as provided in subsection (e), STEP FOUR.
    (e) For each civil taxing unit, the amount to be subtracted under subsection (b), STEP EIGHT, is determined using the following formula:
        STEP ONE: Determine the lesser of the civil taxing unit's base year certified share for the ensuing calendar year, as determined under section 5 of this chapter, or the civil taxing unit's certified share for the ensuing calendar year.
        STEP TWO: Determine the greater of:
            (A) zero (0); or
            (B) the remainder of:
                (i) the amount of federal revenue sharing money that was received by the civil taxing unit in 1985; minus
                (ii) the amount of federal revenue sharing money that will be received by the civil taxing unit in the year preceding the ensuing calendar year.
        STEP THREE: Determine the lesser of:
            (A) the amount determined in STEP TWO; or
            (B) the amount determined in subsection (f) for the civil taxing unit.
        STEP FOUR: Add the amount determined in subsection (d), STEP FOUR, to the amount determined in STEP THREE.
        STEP FIVE: Subtract the amount determined in STEP FOUR from the amount determined in STEP ONE.
    (f) As used in this section, a taxing unit's "determination year" means the latest of:
        (1) calendar year 1987, if the taxing unit is treated as being located in an adopting county for calendar year 1987 under section 4 of this chapter;
        (2) the taxing unit's base year, as defined in section 5 of this chapter, if the taxing unit is treated as not being located in an adopting county for calendar year 1987 under section 4 of this chapter; or
        (3) the ensuing calendar year following the first year that the taxing unit is located in a county that has a county adjusted gross income tax rate of more than one-half percent (0.5%) on July 1 of

that year.
The amount to be used in subsections (d) and (e) for a taxing unit depends upon the taxing unit's certified share for the ensuing calendar year, the taxing unit's determination year, and the county adjusted gross income tax rate for resident county taxpayers (as defined in IC 6-3.5-1.1-1) that is in effect in the taxing unit's county on July 1 of the year preceding the ensuing calendar year. For the determination year and the ensuing calendar years following the taxing unit's determination year, the amount is the taxing unit's certified share for the ensuing calendar year multiplied by the appropriate factor prescribed in the following table:

COUNTIES WITH A TAX RATE OF 1/2%

         Subsection (e)
    Year     Factor
For the determination year and each ensuing
calendar year following the determination year    0
COUNTIES WITH A TAX RATE OF 3/4%

         Subsection (e)

IC 6-1.1-21-4, AS AMENDED BY P.L.245-2003, SECTION 19, AND AS AMENDED BY P.L.264-2003, SECTION 12, IS CORRECTED AND AMENDED TO READ AS FOLLOWS [EFFECTIVE UPON PASSAGE]: Sec. 4. (a) Each year the department shall allocate from the property tax replacement fund an amount equal to the sum of:
        (1) each county's total eligible property tax replacement amount for that year minus the county's total eligible property tax replacement excess; plus

district that meets the requirements of section 5.5 of this chapter. This amount is the sum of the amounts determined under the following STEPS for all taxing districts in the county that contain all or part of an economic development district:
            STEP ONE: Determine that part of the sum of the amounts under section 2(g)(1)(A) and 2(g)(2) of this chapter that is attributable to the taxing district.

    (b) Except as provided in subsection (e), between March 1 and August 31 of each year, the department shall distribute to each county treasurer from the property tax replacement fund one-half (1/2) of the estimated distribution for that year for the county. Between September 1 and December 15 of that year, the department shall distribute to each county treasurer from the property tax replacement fund the remaining one-half (1/2) of each estimated distribution for that year. The amount of the distribution for each of these periods shall be according to a schedule determined by the property tax replacement fund board under section 10 of this chapter. The estimated distribution for each county may be adjusted from time to time by the department to reflect any changes in the total county tax levy upon which the estimated distribution is based.
    (c) On or before December 31 of each year or as soon thereafter as possible, the department shall make a final determination of the amount which should be distributed from the property tax replacement fund to each county for that calendar year. This determination shall be known as the final determination of distribution. The department shall distribute to the county treasurer or receive back from the county treasurer any deficit or excess, as the case may be, between the sum of the distributions made for that calendar year based on the estimated distribution and the final determination of distribution. The final determination of distribution shall be based on:
         (1) the auditor's abstract filed with the auditor of state, adjusted for postabstract adjustments included in the December settlement sheet for the year; and
         (2) such additional information as the department may require.
The final distribution must exclude eligible property tax replacement excess amounts for the county.
    (d) All distributions provided for in this section shall be made on

warrants issued by the auditor of state drawn on the treasurer of state. If the amounts allocated by the department from the property tax replacement fund exceed in the aggregate the balance of money in the fund, then the amount of the deficiency shall be transferred from the state general fund to the property tax replacement fund, and the auditor of state shall issue a warrant to the treasurer of state ordering the payment of that amount. However, any amount transferred under this section from the general fund to the property tax replacement fund shall, as soon as funds are available in the property tax replacement fund, be retransferred from the property tax replacement fund to the state general fund, and the auditor of state shall issue a warrant to the treasurer of state ordering the replacement of that amount.
    (e) Except as provided in subsection (i), the department shall not distribute under subsection (b) and section 10 of this chapter the money attributable to the county's property reassessment fund if:
        (1) by the date the distribution is scheduled to be made, (1) the county auditor has not sent a certified statement required to be sent by that date under IC 6-1.1-17-1 to the department of local government finance; or
        (2) by the deadline under IC 36-2-9-20, the county auditor has not transmitted data as required under that section; or
        (2) (3) the county assessor has not forwarded to the department of local government finance the duplicate copies of all approved exemption applications required to be forwarded by that date under IC 6-1.1-11-8(a).
    (f) Except as provided in subsection (i), if the elected township assessors in the county, the elected township assessors and the county assessor, or the county assessor has not transmitted to the department of local government finance by October 1 of the year in which the distribution is scheduled to be made the data for all townships in the county required to be transmitted under IC 6-1.1-4-25(b), the state board or the department shall not distribute under subsection (b) and section 10 of this chapter a part of the money attributable to the county's property reassessment fund. The portion not distributed is the amount that bears the same proportion to the total potential distribution as the number of townships in the county for which data was not transmitted by August 1 October 1 as described in this section bears to the total number of townships in the county.
    (g) Money not distributed under subsection (e) for the reasons stated in subsection (e)(1) and (e)(2) shall be distributed to the county when:
        (1) the county auditor sends to the department of local government finance the certified statement required to be sent under IC 6-1.1-17-1; and
        (2) the county assessor forwards to the department of local government finance the approved exemption applications required

to be forwarded under IC 6-1.1-11-8(a);
with respect to which the failure to send or forward resulted in the withholding of the distribution under subsection (e).
    (h) Money not distributed under subsection (f) shall be distributed to the county when the elected township assessors in the county, the elected township assessors and the county assessor, or the county assessor transmits to the department of local government finance the data required to be transmitted under IC 6-1.1-4-25(b) with respect to which the failure to transmit resulted in the withholding of the distribution under subsection (f).
    (i) The restrictions on distributions under subsections (e) and (f) do not apply if the department of local government finance determines that:
        (1) the failure of:
            (A) a county auditor to send a certified statement; or
            (B) a county assessor to forward copies of all approved exemption applications;

        as described in subsection (e); or
        (2) the failure of an official to transmit data as described in subsection (f);
is justified by unusual circumstances.".
    Renumber all SECTIONS consecutively.
