79-4231. Oil and gas valuation depletion trust fund; distribution of moneys to counties. (a) There is hereby created in the state treasury the oil and gas valuation depletion trust fund. The director of taxation shall administer the oil and gas valuation depletion trust fund. All amounts credited to the oil and gas valuation depletion trust fund pursuant to the provisions of K.S.A. 79-4227, and amendments thereto, less the administration fee imposed under subsection (c), shall be credited to a separate trust account which shall be established within such fund for each county which in any fiscal year had $100,000 or more in receipts of the excise tax upon the severance and production of oil and gas. Each county's trust account shall be credited in the proportion that the amount of oil and gas valuation depletion trust fund receipts collected from that county bears to the total amount of moneys credited to the oil and gas valuation depletion trust fund pursuant to K.S.A. 79-4227, and amendments thereto. Commencing July 1, 2012, and thereafter on an annual basis, the director of taxation shall certify to the director of accounts and reports the amount due the county from the county's oil and gas depletion trust account on October 1 based on all amounts credited thereto, and the director of accounts and reports shall draw a warrant upon the state treasurer in favor of each such county for the amount credited to such county's trust account. Upon receipt of such warrant, the treasurer of the county shall credit the same to the oil and gas valuation depletion trust fund of the county established in K.S.A. 2012 Supp. 19-271, and amendments thereto. Except that the director of taxation shall transfer all of the moneys credited to the Wilson county trust account to the Wilson county capital improvement fund in any such tax year until the payment of all costs of financing projects authorized pursuant to K.S.A. 2012 Supp. 74-8961, and amendments thereto, has been completed, and at that time the provisions of this subsection related to distributions to the Wilson county treasurer shall be applicable as provided in this subsection.

(b) For any tax year that the oil and gas leasehold ad valorem valuation of any county, which has a trust account established and maintained in a county oil and gas valuation depletion trust fund as provided by K.S.A. 2012 Supp. 19-271, and amendments thereto, is less than 50% of the oil and gas leasehold ad valorem valuation of such county for the second succeeding tax year which commences January 1 following the end of the fiscal year in which the county had $100,000 or more in receipts of the excise tax upon the production of oil and gas, as certified by the property valuation division, on or before January 15 of the year following such tax year, the director of taxation shall certify the oil and gas leasehold ad valorem valuation amounts for each county and shall authorize the county treasurer to release 20% of the moneys credited to such county's oil and gas valuation depletion trust fund to the county general fund of such county. In any year in which a county's oil and gas leasehold valuation is 50% or more of the oil and gas leasehold valuation of such county for tax year as described in this subsection, such county shall not receive an authorization for distribution of trust fund moneys pursuant to this section for such tax year.

(c) The director of taxation shall impose and collect an administration fee for the administration of the oil and gas valuation depletion trust fund, this section and the provisions of K.S.A. 2012 Supp. 79-4227, and amendments thereto, equal to 2% of the amount credited to the oil and gas valuation depletion trust fund. The administration fee shall be imposed and collected prior to crediting any amount to any trust account established and maintained for a county in the oil and gas valuation depletion trust fund. All amounts collected for the administration fee shall be transferred from the oil and gas valuation depletion trust fund to the state general fund.

(d) All moneys credited to the oil and gas valuation depletion trust fund upon the effective date of this act shall be distributed to each county not later than 30 days following the effective date of this act for deposit in the county's oil and gas valuation depletion trust fund established pursuant to the provisions of K.S.A. 2012 Supp. 9-271, and amendments thereto.
