The net proceeds from the sale or rental of any parcel of forfeited land, or from the sale of products from the forfeited land, must be apportioned by the county auditor to the taxing districts interested in the land, as follows:
(1) the portion required to pay any amounts included in the appraised value under section 282.01, subdivision 3, as representing increased value due to any public improvement made after forfeiture of the parcel to the state, but not exceeding the amount certified by the appropriate governmental authority must be apportioned to the governmental subdivision entitled to it;
(2) the portion required to pay any amount included in the appraised value under section 282.019, subdivision 5, representing increased value due to response actions taken after forfeiture of the parcel to the state, but not exceeding the amount of expenses certified by the Pollution Control Agency or the commissioner of agriculture, must be apportioned to the agency or the commissioner of agriculture and deposited in the fund from which the expenses were paid;
(3) the portion of the remainder required to discharge any special assessment chargeable against the parcel for drainage or other purpose whether due or deferred at the time of forfeiture, must be apportioned to the governmental subdivision entitled to it; and
(4) any balance must be apportioned as follows:
(i)(A) Except as provided in subitem (B), the county board may annually by resolution set aside no more than 30 percent of the receipts remaining to be used for forest development on tax-forfeited land and dedicated memorial forests, to be expended under the supervision of the county board. It must be expended only on projects improving the health and management of the forest resource.
(B) For a county that received an aid payment in calendar year 2009 under section 477A.0124, subdivision 5, paragraph (b), the county board is authorized to use some of the money set aside under subitem (A) to replace all or a portion of the amount of aid or credit reimbursement that the county was to receive under sections 273.1384 and 477A.0124, but did not receive due to aid cuts or unallotment from the state. Within six months of the actual aid or credit reimbursement loss, the county board may adopt a resolution transferring money from this fund to the county's general fund, not to exceed the amount of aid or credit reimbursement loss to the county. This subitem expires December 31, 2010.

(iii) Any balance remaining must be apportioned as follows: county, 40 percent; town or city, 20 percent; and school district, 40 percent, provided, however, that in unorganized territory that portion which would have accrued to the township must be administered by the county board of commissioners.
