Sec. 18. (a) This section applies to a deduction provided under section 4.5 of this chapter for new personal property with respect to a statement of benefits approved after June 30, 2015.
(b) As used in this section, "business personal property" means personal property that:
(1) is otherwise subject to assessment and taxation under this article; and
(2) is used in a trade or business or otherwise held, used, or consumed in connection with the production of income.
The term does not include mobile homes assessed under IC 6-1.1-7, personal property held as an investment, or personal property that is assessed under IC 6-1.1-8 and is owned by a public utility subject to regulation by the Indiana utility regulatory commission. However, the term does include the personal property of a telephone company or a communications service provider if that personal property meets the requirements of subdivisions (1) through (2), regardless of whether that personal property is assessed under IC 6-1.1-8 and regardless of whether the telephone company or communications service provider is subject to regulation by the Indiana utility regulatory commission.
(c) As used in this section, "new personal property" means business personal property that:
(1) a taxpayer places in service after the date the taxpayer's statement of benefits is approved by the designating body; and
(2) has not previously been used in Indiana before the taxpayer acquires the business personal property.
(d) A designating body may establish an enhanced abatement schedule for a deduction described in subsection (a). An enhanced abatement schedule established under this subsection:
(1) must specify the percentage amount of the deduction for each year of the deduction; and
(2) may not exceed twenty (20) years.
(e) If a taxpayer is granted a deduction under section 4.5 of this chapter on an abatement schedule that exceeds ten (10) years through an enhanced abatement schedule established under subsection (d), the designating body shall conduct a public hearing to review the taxpayer's compliance with the statement of benefits provided to the designating body under this chapter after the tenth year of the abatement.
