CHAPTER 6.7. Assessment of Filter Strips
6-1.1-6.7-18. Payment upon withdrawal of land; lien
Sec. 18. (a) For purposes of this section, "initial classification assessment" means the assessment required under section 5 of this chapter, and "withdrawal assessment" means the assessment required under section 14 or 15 of this chapter.
(b) If land that is classified as a filter strip is withdrawn from the classification, the owner shall pay an amount equal to the lesser of:
(1) the sum of:
(A) the total property taxes that, if it were not for the classification, would have been assessed on the land during the lesser of the period of classification or the ten (10) year period immediately preceding the date on which the land is withdrawn from the classification; plus
(B) interest on the property taxes at the rate of ten percent (10%) per year; or
(2) the remainder of:
(A) the withdrawal assessment of the land; minus
(B) the sum of the initial classification assessment of the land and any increase in the initial classification of the land resulting from the subsequent construction of a ditch or levee.
(c) The liability imposed by this section is a lien upon the land withdrawn from the classification. When the amount is collected, the amount shall be paid into the county general fund. If the amount is not paid, the lien shall be treated in the same manner that delinquent taxes on real property are treated.
