(A) On the first day of each month in the case of cities, towns, irrigation districts, drainage districts, county libraries and the state and statewide levies. One-half percent (.5%) shall be deducted from payments to cities and towns and credited to the county treasury as reimbursement for county expenses in collecting taxes for the city or town;
(B) On November 25, May 25 and when the board of county commissioners requires, settle county accounts with the board of county commissioners;
(C) To school districts as provided by W.S. 21-13-207;

(ii) Upon sale of property for the nonpayment of taxes, the proceeds thereof shall be distributed as follows:
(A) The portion attributable to school district levies is payable to the proper school district;
(B) The portion attributable to a levy by a city or town is payable to the proper city or town;
(C) The balance is payable to the county general fund.
(iii) The county treasurer shall credit all taxes collected from rail car companies to a separate account and after the regular state, county and school district levies are made, distribute them in the same manner property taxes are distributed. To determine the entitlement to the state, county and school districts the county treasurer shall apportion the taxes to the various school districts through which the rail cars may have operated on the ratio that main track mileage in each school district bears to the total main track mileage within the county.
(b) If taxes are paid under protest to the extent of and due to an appeal pending before the board or any court of competent jurisdiction, the county treasurer shall deposit that protested amount under appeal in an interest bearing escrow account and withhold distribution until a final decision on the appeal has been rendered. To the extent the taxpayer prevails in the appeal, the county treasurer shall refund that amount under appeal, plus interest earned thereon, to the taxpayer within thirty (30) days from the day the final decision is rendered. If the taxpayer pays to the county an amount in excess of the protested amount under appeal, the excess shall be distributed as provided by law.
