AS 18.55.620. Property Exempt From Taxes and Execution.

(a) All property held by the corporation for a purpose set out in AS 18.55.300 - 18.55.470 and in AS 18.55.480 - 18.55.960 is exempt from levy and sale by virtue of an execution, and an execution or other judicial process may not issue against it nor may judgment against it be a charge or lien upon its property. However, this subsection does not apply to or limit the right of an obligee to foreclose or otherwise enforce any mortgage of the corporation or to pursue remedies for the enforcement of a pledge or lien given by the corporation on its rents, fees, grants, or revenue.

(b) The property held by the corporation for a purpose set out in AS 18.55.300 - 18.55.470 and in AS 18.55.480 - 18.55.960 is declared to be public property used for essential public and governmental purposes and the property is exempt from all taxes of the state or a political subdivision of the state. However, subject to (c) of this section, the corporation shall, from the time it acquires title to property in a redevelopment project until it sells, leases, or otherwise disposes of that property, make payment equal in amount and in lieu of taxes that would be assessed and paid to a political subdivision in which the property is situated if the property had not been acquired by the corporation. From the time the corporation sells, leases, or otherwise transfers the property, the obligation of the corporation to make payment in lieu of taxes shall cease and the property shall thereafter be taxable in the same manner as other property within the political subdivision, unless the property is exempt from taxation by law. The property sold, leased, or otherwise transferred by the corporation may be assessed for taxation on that part of the tax year during which it was not owned by the corporation, unless the property is exempt from taxation by law. Except for the payments required by this subsection, the power vested in the corporation to make payments in lieu of taxes under AS 18.55.250 or other law is not affected by this subsection.

(c) Property for which payments are required under (b) of this section is limited to land and valuable improvements on the land, including buildings located on the property on the assessment date.

(d) Payments for property under (b) of this section may not be required from the corporation unless the payments are eligible project costs under federal policy.
