74-8925. Same; taxing subdivision and real property taxes defined; assessment and distribution of taxes; pledge of tax increment portion of taxes. (a) For the purposes of this act, the term "taxing subdivision" shall include the county, the city, the unified school district and any other taxing subdivision levying real property taxes, the territory or jurisdiction of which includes any currently existing or subsequently created redevelopment district. The term "real property taxes" includes all taxes levied on an ad valorem basis upon land and improvements thereon, other than the property tax levied pursuant to the provisions of K.S.A. 2015 Supp. 72-6470, and amendments thereto, or any other property tax levied by or on behalf of a school district.
(b) All tangible taxable property located within a redevelopment district shall be assessed and taxed for ad valorem tax purposes pursuant to law in the same manner that such property would be assessed and taxed if located outside such district, and all ad valorem taxes levied on such property shall be paid to and collected by the county treasurer in the same manner as other taxes are paid and collected. Except as otherwise provided in this section, the county treasurer shall distribute such taxes as may be collected in the same manner as if such property were located outside a redevelopment district. Each redevelopment district established under the provisions of this act shall constitute a separate taxing unit for the purpose of the computation and levy of taxes.
(c) Beginning with the first payment of taxes which are levied following the date of approval of any redevelopment district established pursuant to K.S.A. 74-8921, and amendments thereto, real property taxes received by the county treasurer resulting from taxes which are levied subject to the provisions of this act by and for the benefit of a taxing subdivision, as herein defined, on property located within such redevelopment district constituting a separate taxing unit under the provisions of this section, shall be divided as follows:
(1) From the taxes levied each year subject to the provisions of this act by or for each of the taxing subdivisions upon property located within a redevelopment district constituting a separate taxing unit under the provisions of this act, the county treasurer first shall allocate and pay to each such taxing subdivision all of the real property taxes collected which are produced from that portion of the current assessed valuation of such real property located within such separate taxing unit which is equal to the total assessed value of such real property on the date of the establishment of the redevelopment district.
(2) Any real property taxes produced from that portion of the current assessed valuation of real property within the redevelopment district constituting a separate taxing unit under the provisions of this section in excess of an amount equal to the total assessed value of such real property on the effective date of the establishment of the district shall be allocated and paid by the county treasurer according to specified percentages of the tax increment expressly agreed upon and consented to by the governing bodies of the county and school district in which the redevelopment district is located. The amount of the real property taxes allocated and payable to the authority under the agreement shall be paid by the county treasurer to the treasurer of the state. The remaining amount of the real property taxes not payable to the authority shall be allocated and paid in the same manner as other ad valorem taxes. Any real property taxes paid to the state treasurer under this section shall be deposited in the redevelopment bond finance fund of the authority which is created pursuant to K.S.A. 74-8927, and amendments thereto, to pay the costs of any approved redevelopment project, including the payment of principal of and interest on any bonds issued by the authority to finance, in whole or in part, such project. When such bonds and interest thereon have been paid, all moneys thereafter received from real property taxes within such redevelopment district shall be allocated and paid to the respective taxing subdivisions in the same manner as are other ad valorem taxes. If such bonds and interest thereon have been paid before the completion of a project, the authority may continue to use such moneys for any purpose authorized by the redevelopment agreement until such time as the project costs are paid or reimbursed, but for a period not to exceed the final scheduled maturity of the bonds.
(d) In any redevelopment plan or in the proceedings for the issuing of any bonds by the authority to finance a project, the property tax increment portion of taxes provided for in subsection (c)(2) may be irrevocably pledged for the payment of the principal of and interest on such bonds. The authority may adopt a redevelopment plan in which only a specified percentage of the tax increment realized from taxpayers in the redevelopment district is pledged to the payment of costs.
