AS 44.88.140. Exemption From Taxation.
- (a) Except as provided in AS 29.45.030
(a)(1), the real and personal property of the authority and its assets, income, and receipts are declared to be the
property of a political subdivision of the state and, together with any project or development project financed under
AS 44.88.155 - 44.88.159 or 44.88.172 - 44.88.177, and a leasehold interest created in a project
or development project financed under AS 44.88.155 -
44.88.159 or 44.88.172 - 44.88.177, devoted to an essential public and
governmental function and purpose, and the property, assets, income, receipts, project, development project, and
leasehold interests shall be exempt from all taxes and special assessments of the state or a political subdivision of
the state, including, without limitation, all boroughs, cities, municipalities, school districts, public utility
districts, and other taxing units. All bonds of the authority are declared to be issued by a political subdivision of
the state and for an essential public and governmental purpose and to be a public instrumentality, and the bonds, and
the interest on them, the income from them and the transfer of the bonds, and all assets, income, and receipts pledged
to pay or secure the payments of the bonds, or interest on them, shall at all times be exempt from taxation by or under
the authority of the state, except for inheritance and estate taxes and taxes on transfers by or in contemplation of
death. Nothing in this section affects or limits an exemption from license fees, property taxes, or excise, income, or
any other taxes, provided under any other law, nor does it create a tax exemption with respect to the interest of any
business enterprise or other person, other than the authority, in any property, assets, income, receipts, project,
development project, or lease whether or not financed under this chapter. By January 10 of each year, the authority
shall submit to the governor a report describing the nature and extent of the tax exemption of the property, assets,
income, receipts, project, development project, and leasehold interests of the authority under this section. The
authority shall notify the legislature that the report is available.
- (b) An applicant or proposed applicant under this chapter and the local political subdivision may enter into agreements
providing for payments in lieu of taxes, computed on a formula basis or otherwise. The agreement may provide that the
payments be made to the local political subdivision or to any other taxing unit of the state including, without
limitation, a borough, city, municipality, school district or public utility district, the area of which is coterminous
in whole or in part with that of the local political subdivision.
- (c) [Repealed, Sec. 126 ch 6 SLA 1984].
- (d) In this section, "local political subdivision" means the political subdivision of the state in which a project or
development project financed under AS 44.88.155
- 44.88.159 or 44.88.172 - 44.88.177 is or is to be located.
