Sec. 12.5. Except as provided in section 12(f) of this chapter, if a county or municipality receives a reimbursement, repayment,
or penalty from a taxpayer on account of the taxpayer's failure to comply with the
statement of benefits provided by the taxpayer or on account of the taxpayer's failure
to comply with any other requirement to receive a deduction under this chapter, the
county or municipal fiscal officer shall distribute the amount of the reimbursement,
repayment, or penalty on a pro rata basis to each taxing unit that contains the property
that was subject to the deduction. The amount to be distributed to each taxing unit that contains the property that
was subject to the deduction shall be determined according to the following formula:
STEP ONE: Determine the total aggregate property tax rate imposed in the preceding
year by the taxing unit.
STEP TWO: Determine the sum of the STEP ONE amounts for all taxing units that contain
the property that was subject to the deduction.
STEP THREE: Divide the STEP ONE amount by the sum determined under STEP TWO.
STEP FOUR: Multiply the amount of the reimbursement, repayment, or penalty by the
STEP THREE quotient.
