(1) The city, village, township, school district, and county treasurers shall transmit to the authority tax increment revenues.
(2) The authority shall expend the tax increment revenues received for the development program only in accordance with the tax increment financing plan.

The excess tax increment revenues not so used shall revert proportionately to the respective taxing jurisdictions. These revenues shall not be used to circumvent existing property tax laws or a local charter that provides a maximum authorized rate for the levy of property taxes. The governing body may abolish the tax increment financing plan if it finds that the purposes for which the plan was established are accomplished. However, the tax increment financing plan may not be abolished until the principal of and interest on bonds issued pursuant to section 14 have been paid or funds sufficient to make that payment have been segregated and placed in an irrevocable trust for the benefit of the holders of the bonds.
