Section 25B.7, subsection 2, paragraph c, Code 1 2 2005, is amended to read as follows: 1 3 c. Military service property tax credit and exemption 1 4 pursuant to chapter 426A, to the extent of six dollars and 1 5 ninety=two cents per thousand dollars of assessed value of the 1 6 exempt property. 1 7 Sec. 2. Section 426A.2, Code 2005, is amended to read as 1 8 follows: 1 9 426A.2 MILITARY SERVICE TAX CREDIT. 1 10 The moneys shall be apportioned each year so as to replace 1 11 all or a portion of the tax which would be due on property 1 12 eligible for military service tax exemption in the state, if 1 13 the property were subject to taxation, the amount of the 1 14 credit to be not more than six dollars and ninety=two cents 1 15 per thousand dollars of assessed value of property which would 1 16 be subject to the tax, except for the military service tax 1 17 exemption. 1 18 Sec. 3. Section 426A.5, Code 2005, is amended to read as 1 19 follows: 1 20 426A.5 PROPORTIONATE SHARES TO DISTRICTS. 1 21 The amount of credits received under this chapter shall 1 22 then be apportioned by each county treasurer to the several 1 23 taxing districts in the same manner as though the amount of 1 24 the credit had been paid by the owner of the property 1 25 receiving the credit. Each taxing district shall receive its 1 26 proportionate share of the military service tax credit allowed 1 27 on each and every tax exemption allowed in such the taxing 1 28 district, in the proportion that the levy made by such taxing 1 29 district upon general property bears to the total levy upon 1 30 all property subject to general property taxation by all 1 31 taxing districts imposing a general property tax in such 1 32 taxing district based upon the amount of property taxes which 1 33 would be due on the property receiving the credit, if the 1 34 property were subject to taxation. 1 35 Sec. 4. EFFECTIVE AND APPLICABILITY DATE. This Act, being 2 1 deemed of immediate importance, takes effect upon enactment 2 2 and applies to the military service property tax exemption 2 3 allowed for property taxes due and payable during fiscal years 2 4 beginning on or after July 1, 2006. 2 5 EXPLANATION 2 6 Under present law, the state will reimburse local 2 7 governments for the lost tax revenue resulting from the 2 8 military service tax exemption. However, the amount of 2 9 reimbursement is limited to $6.92 per $1,000 of the assessed 2 10 value of the exemption. Since the consolidated levies 2 11 throughout the state exceed $6.92 per $1,000 of the assessed 2 12 value, the local governments are not reimbursed for all the 2 13 lost property tax revenue. This bill increases the amount of 2 14 the reimbursement to equal the full amount of the property 2 15 taxes lost by local governments as a result of the military 2 16 service tax exemption. 2 17 The bill takes effect upon enactment and applies to taxes 2 18 due and payable during fiscal years beginning on or after July 2 19 1, 2006. 2 20 LSB 5991XS 81 2 21 mg:rj/je/5
