Office of the Revisor of Statutes

When preparing tax lists pursuant to section 275.28 for each levy year for which credits
will be payable under section 273.42, the county auditor shall deduct from the net tax capacity
of the property within the county an amount equal to ten percent of the net tax capacity of
transmission lines with respect to which a credit is to be paid and which are valued pursuant to
section 273.36. The local tax rate necessary to be applied to this reduced total net tax capacity
in order to raise the required amount of tax revenue for the local taxing authorities shall be
applied to the net tax capacity of all taxable property in the county, including the entire net tax
capacity of those transmission lines. The proceeds of the tax levied against the excluded ten
percent of the net tax capacity of those transmission lines shall be available for purposes of
funding of the credit provided in section 273.42. If the amount of that portion of the levy exceeds
the amount necessary to fund the credits, the excess shall be distributed to the taxing districts
within which the affected property is located in proportion to their respective local tax rates, to
be used for general levy purposes.
