123.1356a Municipality that is tax increment finance authority; calculation of municipality's tax increment small taxpayer loss; duties of municipality; report.Sec. 16a.

(1) Not later than June 15, 2014 and June 15, 2015, each municipality that is a tax increment finance authority shall calculate and report to the department the municipality's tax increment small taxpayer loss for the current calendar year.

(2) Not later than June 15, 2016, and each June 15 thereafter, each municipality that is a tax increment finance authority shall do all of the following for each of its tax increment financing plans:

(a) Calculate the total captured value of all industrial personal property and commercial personal property in the municipality that is a tax increment finance authority in 2013 and add any increased captured value for the current year.

(b) From the amount calculated in subdivision (a), subtract the total captured value of all industrial personal property and commercial personal property in the municipality that is a tax increment finance authority in the current year. If the resulting amount, when added to the taxable value of all property within the tax increment finance authority in the current year, would result in a captured value for all property within the tax increment finance authority that is less than the resulting amount, then this captured value shall be used instead of the resulting amount.

(c) Multiply the result of the calculation in subdivision (b) by the sum of the lowest rate of each individual millage levied in the period between 2012 and the year immediately preceding the current year, to the extent the millage is subject to capture by that tax increment finance authority. For an individual millage rate not levied in 1 of the years, the lowest millage rate is zero. A millage used to make the calculation under this subdivision must be eligible to be levied against both real property and personal property.

(d) Adjust the amount calculated under subdivision (c) by the amount required to reflect the final order of a court or body of competent jurisdiction related to any prior year calculation under this section.

(e) For an obligation refinanced after 2012, estimate for the term of the obligation:

(i) The cumulative school district operating tax and state education tax that would have been captured to repay the obligation had the obligation not been refinanced.

(ii) The cumulative amount calculated under subdivision (c), as adjusted by subdivision (d), for school district operating tax and state education tax for the obligation had it not been refinanced.

(f) Once the amount included in subdivision (c), as adjusted by subdivision (d), for the current and prior years for school operating tax and state education tax for the refinanced obligation equals the amount estimated in subdivision (e)(ii), subtract from the amount calculated under subdivision (c), as adjusted by subdivision (d), the amount calculated under subdivision (c), as adjusted by subdivision (d), for school district operating tax and state education tax for the refinanced obligation.

(g) Once the amount of school district operating tax and state education tax captured for the current and prior years to pay the refinanced obligation equals the amount estimated under subdivision (e)(i), subtract from the amount calculated in subdivision (c), as adjusted by subdivision (d), the amount of school operating tax and state education tax captured to repay the refinanced obligation.

(3) Not later than June 15, 2016, and each June 15 thereafter, each municipality that is a tax increment finance authority shall report to the department the results of the calculations under subsection (2) for each tax increment financing plan.
