Distribution of funds to local governments

(1) For each tax year in which a taxpayer is allowed a credit under ORS 317.124 (Long term enterprise zone facilities), the Department of Revenue shall distribute to the local taxing districts in which the facility that is the basis of the credit is located an amount of tax payments that corresponds to the amount of payments deposited under ORS 317.129 (Tax payments of long term enterprise zone facilities credit claimants).

(b) If the facility is located in more than one code area, amounts to be distributed under subsection (1) of this section shall be allocated to each code area in which the facility is located, based on the ratio of the real market value of the facility in each code area to the total real market value of the facility.

(c) The amount distributed to each district under subsection (1) of this section shall be the amount that bears the same proportion to the total amount to be distributed under this section as the proportion of the operating tax billing rate of the district receiving distribution bears to the total operating tax billing rate of all of the local taxing districts described in paragraph (a) of this subsection.

(d) Notwithstanding paragraph (b) of this subsection, the amount distributed to a local taxing district under subsection (1) of this section for a fiscal year may not exceed the amount of property taxes forgone by that district as a result of the exemption from property tax under ORS 285C.409 (Property tax exemption) in that year.

(3) If any moneys described in subsection (1) of this section remain following computation of the distributions to local taxing districts under subsection (2) of this section, the moneys shall be distributed to the zone sponsor.
