TITLE 6. Taxation
ARTICLE 1.1. PROPERTY TAXES
CHAPTER 12.1. Deduction for Rehabilitation or Redevelopment of Real Property in Economic Revitalization Areas
6-1.1-12.1-9.5. Waiver of noncompliance
Sec. 9.5. (a) As used in this section, "clerical error" includes mathematical errors and omitted signatures.
(b) Except as provided in section 9 of this chapter, the designating body may by resolution waive noncompliance with the following requirements in this chapter with respect to a particular deduction under this chapter:
(1) a filing deadline applicable to an application, a statement of benefits, or another document that is required to be filed under this chapter; or
(2) a clerical error in an application, a statement of benefits, or another document that is required to be filed under this chapter;
if the taxpayer otherwise qualifies for the deduction and the document is filed or the clerical error is corrected before the resolution is adopted. The resolution must specifically identify the property, deductions, and taxpayer that are effected by the resolution, specifically identify the noncompliance that is the subject of the resolution, and include a finding that the noncompliance has been corrected before the adoption of the resolution.
(c) The designating body shall certify a copy of a resolution adopted under this section to the taxpayer and the department of local government finance.
(d) If a noncompliance with this chapter has been corrected and a resolution is adopted under this section, the taxpayer shall be treated as if the taxpayer had complied with the procedural requirements of this chapter. However, if the designating body determines that granting the relief permitted by this section would result in a delay in the issuance of tax bills, require the recalculation of tax rates or tax levies for a particular year, or otherwise cause an undue burden on a taxing unit, the designating body may require that the deduction that the taxpayer would be entitled to receive for a particular year be applied to a subsequent year in the manner prescribed by the department of local government finance.
