Moneys may be budgeted and transferred to such fund from any source which may be lawfully utilized for such purposes. Any municipality may expend money from the general fund of such municipality to accomplish the purposes of this act.

(b) Moneys credited to such fund from annually budgeted transfers shall not be subject to the provisions of K.S.A. 79-2925 through 79-2937, and amendments thereto. In making the budget of the municipality, the amounts credited to, and the amount on hand in, such neighborhood revitalization fund and the amount expended therefrom shall be shown thereon for the information of taxpayers. Moneys in such fund may be invested in accordance with K.S.A. 10-131, and amendments thereto with the interest credited to the fund.

(c) If the governing body determines that money which has been credited to such fund or any part thereof is not needed for the purposes for which so budgeted or transferred, the governing body may transfer such amount not needed to the fund from which it came and such retransfer and expenditure shall be subject to the provisions of K.S.A. 79-2925 through 79-2937, and amendments thereto.

(d) Any increment in ad valorem property taxes levied by the municipality resulting from improvements by a taxpayer to property in a neighborhood revitalization area or to a dilapidated structure may be credited to the fund for the purpose of returning all or a part of the property increment to the taxpayer in the form of a rebate. Applications for rebates shall be submitted in the manner and subject to the conditions provided by the revitalization plan adopted under K.S.A. 12-17,117 and amendments thereto. Upon approval of an application received hereunder the municipality shall rebate all or a part of incremental increases in ad valorem property tax resulting from the improvements.

(e) No later than November 1 of each year the county clerk of each county shall certify to the state commissioner of education the assessed valuation amount of any school district therein for which tax increment rebates have been made by the school district during the previous year in accordance with an interlocal agreement approved by the board of education of such district under the provisions of K.S.A. 12-17,119 and amendments thereto. The amount of the assessed valuation shall be determined by dividing the total amount of tax increment rebates paid by the district during the preceding 12 months by the total of the ad valorem tax levy rates levied by or on behalf of the district in the previous year. The commissioner of education shall annually deduct the certified amounts of assessed valuation for such rebates from the total assessed valuation of the district in determining the total and per pupil assessed valuations used in the allocation of state aid payments to school districts.
