advanced tax draw
|advanced tax draw||
IC 5-13-6-3 allows counties to advance taxes to taxing units amounting to 95% of the amount such unit would get in a distribution of the taxes collected for the unit at the time of advancement. The term "taxes collected" includes property tax and license excise tax. The request for an advance tax draw must be filed at least thirty (30) days before the treasurer is required to make the advance. The Treasurer provides collection information to the Auditor and the following procedures should be followed:
1. The collections for each taxing district within the municipal corporation, as shown by the records of the county treasurer, should be multiplied by 95%.
2. Divide the answer under (1) by the total tax rate for the taxing district to obtain the factor to be used in apportioning the tax.
3. Multiply the factor by the tax rate for the fund for which the advance draw is requested, to arrive at the maximum amount which can be advanced.
4. Issue an application to pay and quietus in favor of the county treasurer for the amount to be advanced to the credit of the fund for which advanced and issue a warrant therefore in favor of the proper officer of the municipal corporation. The treasurer shall enter the advance on line 42 on the left side of the Daily Balance of Cash and Depositories and such amounts are deducted from the amount of total taxes collected shown on line 41. This will leave the total amount of taxes to be settled on line 43. It is imperative that advances be recorded by the treasurer to insure the proper amounts are distributed at Settlement.
