Sec. 1. 30-A MRSA §7502, sub-§1,  as amended by PL 2007, c. 541, Pt. F, §2, is further amended to read:

1. Fund established.   There is established in each county one unorganized territory fund to which must be credited all receipts under Title 12, section 10203 and Title 36, sections 1487, 1505 and , 1606 and 1612 and all other receipts that are allocated for municipal services in the unorganized territory, and from which all disbursements for municipal services in the unorganized territory are made.

Sec. 2. 36 MRSA §1612  is enacted to read:

§ 1612 Payment in lieu of taxes in unorganized territory

1 Payment in lieu of taxes in unorganized territory.   An owner of property that is exempt from taxation under section 652 and is located in an unorganized territory may make a voluntary payment in lieu of taxes to the State Tax Assessor.
2 County unorganized territory fund.   The State Tax Assessor shall deposit a payment in lieu of taxes in subsection 1 into the county unorganized territory fund under Title 30-A, section 7502, subsection 1 of the county in which the property exempt from taxes is located.
