Not later than December twenty-sixth of each year, each county auditor shall submit a statement of the amount of taxes that would have been assessed against pipeline facilities property exempted under this section to the state treasurer for payment. The state treasurer shall make the required payment to each county not later than March first of the following year, and the county auditor shall distribute the payments to the political subdivisions in which the exempt pipeline facilities property is located.
