This Section also requires DOR to notify a political subdivision that its annual report is past due if the political subdivision does not file the annual report by May 1, or within the extension of time granted by DOR. Under this Section, if the political subdivision does not file the required annual report within 60 days of the date of the notice, DOR must charge the political subdivision a fee of $100 per day for each day that the annual report is past due.
257,13 Section 13. 66.1106 (3) (a) of the statutes is amended to read:
66.1106 (3) (a) Any political subdivision that seeks to use an environmental remediation tax increment under sub. (2) shall convene a standing joint review board to review the proposal. If a political subdivision creates more than one tax incremental district under this section consisting of different overlying taxing jurisdictions, it shall create a separate standing joint review board for each combination of overlying jurisdictions, except that if a political subdivision creates a tax incremental district under this section and s. 66.1105 that share the same overlying taxing jurisdictions, the political subdivision may create one standing joint review board for the districts. The joint review board shall remain in existence for the entire time that any tax incremental district exists in the political subdivision with the same overlying taxing jurisdictions as the overlying taxing jurisdictions represented on the standing joint review board. The board shall consist of one representative chosen by the school district that has power to levy taxes on the property that is remediated, one representative chosen by the technical college district that has power to levy taxes on the property, one representative chosen by the county that has power to levy taxes on the property that is remediated, one representative chosen by the city, village or town that has power to levy taxes on the property that is remediated and one public member. If more than one city, village or town, more than one school district, more than one technical college district or more than one county has the power to levy taxes on the property that is remediated, the unit in which is located property that has the greatest value shall choose that representative to the board. The public member and the board's chairperson shall be selected by a majority of the other board members at the board's first meeting. All board members shall be appointed and the first board meeting held within 14 days after the political subdivision's governing body approves the written proposal under sub. (2). Additional meetings Meetings of the board in addition to the meeting required under this paragraph and par. (e) shall be held upon the call of any member. The political subdivision that seeks to act under sub. (2) shall provide administrative support for the board. By majority vote, the board may disband following approval or rejection of the proposal the termination under sub. (11) of all existing environmental remediation districts in the political subdivision with the same overlying taxing jurisdictions as the overlying taxing jurisdictions represented on the joint review board.
Note: This Section requires a political subdivision to create a standing JRB that must remain in existence for the entire time that any environmental remediation TID exists in the political subdivision with the same overlying taxing jurisdictions as the overlying taxing jurisdictions represented on the JRB. If a political subdivision creates an environmental remediation TID, and a TID under s. 66.1105, Stats., and both TIDs share the same overlying taxing jurisdictions, the political subdivision may use the same standing JRB for both TIDs. Also, a standing JRB may, by majority vote, disband following the termination of all existing environmental remediation TIDs located in the political subdivision with the same overlying district as the overlying taxing jurisdictions represented on the JRB.
257,14 Section 14. 66.1106 (3) (e) of the statutes is created to read:
66.1106 (3) (e) The joint review board shall meet annually on July 1, or when an annual report under sub. (10) (a) becomes available, to review annual reports under sub. (10m) (a) and to review the performance and status of each district governed by the board.
Note: This Section requires a standing JRB to meet annually on July 1, or as soon as the updated annual report describing the status of each existing environmental remediation TID becomes available. The purpose of the annual meeting is to review the performance and status of each existing environmental remediation TID.

66.1106 (10m) Review. (a) 1. The department of revenue shall, by rule, designate a format for annual reports under sub. (10) (a) and shall require these reports to be filed electronically.
2. The department of revenue shall post annual reports on its official Internet site no later than 45 days after the department receives the report from the political subdivision. The department shall also post a list of political subdivisions that have not submitted an annual report to the department.

The department shall post on its official Internet site a list of political subdivisions that have received an extension granted under this subdivision, the period of the extension, and an indication of whether the political subdivision timely filed the report within the extension.

DOR must create this format by rule. DOR must post on its official Internet site the annual reports filed with it no later than 45 days after it receives the annual report. However, DOR may grant a political subdivision an extension of time for filing the annual report if the political subdivision provides DOR with sufficient evidence that the report is in the process of being completed. DOR must post on its official Internet site a list of political subdivisions that received an extension of time for filing the annual report, the time period of the extension, and whether the political subdivision timely filed the annual report within the extension of time.
Also under this Section, DOR must notify a political subdivision that its annual report is past due if the political subdivision does not file the annual report by July 1, or within the extension of time granted by DOR. Under this Section, if the political subdivision does not file the required annual report within 60 days of the notice, DOR must charge the political subdivision a fee of $100 per day for each day that the annual report is past due.
