1. The governing body of any county which has been authorized by a majority of the electors of the county to create or to become a part of the metropolitan culture district and to levy and collect a tax for the purpose of contributing to the financial support of the district shall adopt a resolution imposing a countywide sales tax and pledging the revenues received therefrom for such purpose. The rate of such tax shall be fixed at an amount of not more than one-fourth of one percent. Any county levying a sales tax under the authority of this section is hereby prohibited from administering or collecting such tax locally, but shall utilize the services of the state department of revenue to administer, enforce and collect such tax. The sales tax shall be administered, enforced and collected in the same manner and by the same procedure as other countywide sales taxes are levied and collected and shall be in addition to any other sales tax authorized by law. Except as modified in this section, all provisions of sections 32.085 and 32.087 shall apply to the tax imposed pursuant to this section. Upon receipt of a certified copy of a resolution authorizing the levy of a countywide sales tax pursuant to this section, the director of the department of revenue shall cause such tax to be collected at the same time and in the same manner provided for the collection of the state sales tax. All moneys collected by the director of revenue pursuant to the provisions of this section shall be credited to the “Metropolitan Culture District Sales Tax Fund” which is hereby established in the state treasury. Any refund due on any countywide sales tax collected pursuant to this section shall be paid out of the sales tax refund fund and reimbursed by the director of revenue from the sales tax revenue collected pursuant to this section. All countywide sales tax revenue collected within any county pursuant to this section shall be remitted at least quarterly by the director of revenue to the treasurer of such county.
2. All revenue received by any county treasurer from a countywide sales tax imposed pursuant to this section shall be appropriated by the county to the metropolitan culture district commission within sixty days of receipt of the funds by the county for expenditure by the commission pursuant to, and in accordance with, the provisions of the Kansas and Missouri metropolitan culture district compact, enacted in section 70.500. If any such revenue remains upon nullification and voidance of the Kansas and Missouri metropolitan culture district compact, section 70.500, the director of revenue shall authorize the state treasurer to remit the balance in the account to the county and close the account of that county.
3. Notwithstanding the provisions of section 33.080 to the contrary, money in the metropolitan culture district sales tax fund shall not be transferred and placed to the credit of general revenue at the end of the biennium.
