A certified copy of any resolution or ordinance adopted or passed imposing, reimposing or eliminating a tax pursuant to this section shall be submitted to the county clerk of the county or counties in which the taxing subdivision is located. On or before July 15, 1983, and July 15 of each year thereafter, the clerk of each county shall transmit to the director of taxation of the state department of revenue a list showing the tax rate, if any, imposed on money, notes and other evidence of debt for the following year by the county and every city or township situated within such county.

Any such election shall be noticed, called and conducted in the manner prescribed in the general bond law. Any election which was otherwise conducted in accordance with the provisions of this subsection but which was held on April 5, 1983, on any proposition which is submitted to the electors of a township by the governing body of such township pursuant to a petition submitted under this subsection is hereby declared valid. If a majority of the electors voting thereon at such election shall vote in favor of such proposition, the board of county commissioners or the township board shall provide by resolution or the governing body of any city shall provide by ordinance that no tax shall be levied upon gross earnings derived from money, notes and other evidence of debt as follows: When such election is held prior to August in any year, the resolution or ordinance shall provide that no such tax shall be levied thereon in the calendar year following the year of such election and in each year thereafter, and when such election is held in August or thereafter of any year, the resolution or ordinance shall provide that no such tax shall be levied thereon in the second calendar year following the year of such election or in any year thereafter. The governing body of the taxing subdivision shall thereupon be authorized to offset the loss in revenue from the elimination of such tax by the imposition and levying of any other taxes as may be authorized by law or by increasing its ad valorem tax levy for the general fund or, in the case of townships, for the general fund or any other fund for any year in which revenue is not received from the tax on gross earnings derived from money, notes and other evidence of debt in an amount not to exceed the amount of such tax received in the year prior to elimination of such tax. With respect to townships, the increase in the amount of such ad valorem tax authorized herein shall be in addition to any aggregate levy amount which may be fixed by any existing state law or any law which may hereafter be enacted. With respect to cities and counties, any such levy shall be exempt from the limitation imposed under the provisions of K.S.A. 79-5001 to 79-5016, inclusive. Notwithstanding the provisions of this subsection to the contrary, the governing body of a county, city or township may either reimpose or submit to the electors of such subdivision a proposition to reimpose a tax on gross earnings derived from money, notes and other evidence of debt in the manner and at the rate prescribed by this section.

(f) On or after January 1, 1983, upon submission of a petition which is in conformance with the provisions of article 36 of chapter 25 of the Kansas Statutes Annotated, and amendments thereto, and is signed by not less than 5% of the qualified electors of a county, city or township not levying a tax under the provisions of this act requesting the same, the governing body of such taxing subdivision shall be required to submit to the electors of such taxing subdivision at the next state general election or general election held for the election of officers of such taxing subdivision a proposition to impose a tax pursuant to this act in an amount not exceeding the limitations prescribed in this section. Such proposition shall be in substantially the following form: "Shall_______________(county) (city) (township) impose a tax on gross earnings derived from money, notes and other evidence of debt at a rate of _______ pursuant to K.S.A. 12-1,101, et seq. to reduce property taxes?" Any such election shall be noticed, called and conducted in the manner prescribed by the general bond law. Any election which was otherwise conducted in accordance with the provisions of this subsection but which was held on April 5, 1983, on any proposition which is submitted to the electors of a township by the governing body of such township pursuant to a petition submitted under this subsection is hereby declared valid. If a majority of the electors voting thereon at such election vote in favor of the proposition the board of county commissioners or the township board shall provide by resolution or the governing body of any city shall provide by ordinance for the imposition of such taxes in the manner prescribed by this act. Such taxes shall be effective for all taxable years commencing after December 31 of the year in which such proposition is approved by the electors of the taxing subdivision.
