Commercial / Industrial Backfill Budget Tool

Senate File 619, a bill passed during the 2021 Legislative Session,  restructured how mental health service through the State would be funded.  As part of this change in mental health funding, the commercial and industrial rollback replacement payment, commonly known as the backfill, was altered.  The backfill was given a new payment structure based on the amount of payment a city was to receive during fiscal year 2021-2022, with a reduction occurring each year until final payments were made.  The final payment date varies based on the growth in taxable value of the local government from FY 2013-2014 through FY 2020-2021.  If a city's taxable value without gas and electric grew more than 31.24% over this time period, the city would receive the amount of the FY 2021-2022 payment with a further 20% reduction each year from FY 2023 through FY 2026.  If a city's growth was lower than 31.24%, the city would receive backfill payments reduced by 12.5% each year through FY 2029.  Though the payments are calculated differently, payments received must still be allocated amongst city funds by the amount of property tax levy budgeted. This tool was created to help with budgeting these payments across the various city funds.
