"SECTION 56. [EFFECTIVE UPON PASSAGE] (a) This
SECTION applies to a homestead that would have been entitled to
a homestead credit under IC 6-1.1-20.9 for a particular year if an
applicant had filed for the homestead credit within the time
required under IC 6-1.1-20.9-3 for the credit to apply to the year.
(b) The definitions in IC 6-1.1-20.9-1 apply throughout this
(c) Notwithstanding IC 6-1.1-20.9 or any other law specifying
the date by which an application for a homestead credit under
IC 6-1.1-20.9 must be filed to claim a homestead credit for
property taxes imposed for a particular assessment date, an
individual may before June 11, 2009, file with the county assessor
an application for a homestead credit against property taxes
imposed on a homestead for an assessment date after January 15,
2004, and before January 16, 2007.
(d) Notwithstanding any provision of IC 6-1.1-20.9 or any other
law, an application for a homestead credit under subsection (c) is
considered to be timely filed, and the county auditor shall grant a
homestead credit claimed for the assessment date in the application
upon the county auditor's determination that:
(1) the application for a homestead credit satisfies all other
applicable requirements; and
(2) the tangible property that is the subject of the application
was, except for the failure to timely file for a homestead
credit, otherwise eligible for the claimed homestead credit.
A homestead credit granted under this SECTION applies to
subsequent years to the same extent as if it had been filed under
(e) The granting of a homestead credit for a particular year
under this SECTION entitles the homestead to any standard
deduction under IC 6-1.1-12-37 and any credit under IC 6-1.1-20.6
that was available for the year. However, a homestead credit
granted under this SECTION does not entitle the homestead to any
additional homestead credit that would have been available for the
year under IC 6-1.1-20.4 or IC 6-3.5. The property tax replacement
fund board shall settle any underpayment of a distribution under
IC 6-1.1-21 related to the homestead credits granted under this
SECTION in the manner provided in IC 6-1.1-21-9.
(f) If an individual or a trust has previously paid the tax liability
for tangible property for an assessment date and the property is
granted a homestead credit under this SECTION for that
assessment date, the county auditor shall issue a refund of the
property tax paid by the individual or trust. An individual or trust
is not required to apply for any refund due under this SECTION.
The county auditor shall, without an appropriation being required,
issue a warrant to the individual or trust payable from the county
general fund for the amount of the refund, if any, due the entity.
No interest is payable on the refund.
(f) This SECTION expires July 1, 2009.".
Renumber all SECTIONS consecutively.
