        (1) is a recipient of Medicaid or the federal Supplemental Security Income program;
        (2) is incapable of residing in the individual's own home because of dementia, mental illness, or a physical disability;
        (3) requires a degree of care less than that provided by a health care facility licensed under IC 16-28;
        (4) can be adequately cared for in a residential care setting; and
        (5) has not made any asset transfer prohibited under the state plan or in 42 U.S.C. 1396p(c) in order to be eligible for Medicaid.
    (b) Individuals with mental retardation may not be admitted to a home or facility that provides residential care under this section.
    (c) A service coordinator employed by the division may:
        (1) evaluate a person seeking admission to a home or facility under subsection (a); or
        (2) evaluate a person who has been admitted to a home or facility under subsection (a), including a review of the existing evaluations in the person's record at the home or facility.
If the service coordinator determines the person evaluated under this subsection has mental retardation, the service coordinator may recommend an alternative placement for the person.
    (d) Except as provided in section 5 of this chapter, residential care consists of only room, board, and laundry, along with minimal administrative direction. State financial assistance may be provided for such care in a boarding or residential home of the applicant's choosing that is licensed under IC 16-28 or a Christian Science facility listed and certified by the Commission for Accreditation of Christian Science Nursing Organizations/Facilities, Inc., that meets certain life safety standards considered necessary by the state fire marshal. Payment for such care shall be made to the provider of the care according to division directives and supervision. The amount of nonmedical assistance to be paid on behalf of a recipient living in a boarding home, residential home, or Christian Science facility shall be based on the daily rate established by the division. The rate for facilities that are referred to in this section and licensed under IC 16-28 may not exceed an upper rate limit established by a rule adopted by the division. The recipient may retain from the recipient's income a monthly personal allowance of fifty-two dollars ($52). This amount is exempt from income eligibility consideration by the division and may be exclusively used by the recipient for the recipient's personal needs. However, if the recipient's income is less than the amount of the personal allowance, the division shall pay to the recipient the difference between the amount of the personal allowance and the recipient's income. A reserve or an accumulated balance from such a source, together with other sources, may not be allowed to exceed the state's resource allowance allowed for adults eligible for state supplemental assistance or Medicaid as established by the rules of the office of Medicaid policy and planning.
    (e) In addition to the amount that may be retained as a personal allowance under this section, an individual shall be allowed to retain

an amount equal to the individual's state and local income tax liability. The amount that may be retained during a month may not exceed one-third (1/3) of the individual's state and local income tax liability for the calendar quarter in which that month occurs. This amount is exempt from income eligibility consideration by the division. The amount retained shall be used by the individual to pay any state or local income taxes owed.
    (f) In addition to the amounts that may be retained under subsections (d) and (e), an eligible individual may retain a Holocaust victim's settlement payment. The payment is exempt from income eligibility consideration by the division.
    (g) The rate of payment to the provider shall be determined in accordance with a prospective prenegotiated payment rate predicated on a reasonable cost related basis, with a growth of profit factor, as determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and methods, and written standards and criteria, as established by the division. The division shall establish an administrative appeal procedure to be followed if rate disagreement occurs if the provider can demonstrate to the division the necessity of costs in excess of the allowed or authorized fee for the specific boarding or residential home. The amount may not exceed the maximum established under subsection (d).
    (h) (g) The personal allowance for one (1) month for an individual described in subsection (a) is the amount that an individual would be entitled to retain under subsection (d) plus an amount equal to one-half (1/2) of the remainder of:
        (1) gross earned income for that month; minus
        (2) the sum of:
            (A) sixteen dollars ($16); plus
            (B) the amount withheld from the person's paycheck for that month for payment of state income tax, federal income tax, and the tax prescribed by the federal Insurance Contribution Act (26 U.S.C. 3101 et seq.); plus
            (C) transportation expenses for that month; plus
            (D) any mandatory expenses required by the employer as a condition of employment.
    (i) (h) An individual who, before September 1, 1983, has been admitted to a home or facility that provides residential care under this section is eligible for residential care in the home or facility.
    (j) (i) The director of the division may contract with the division of mental health and addiction or the division of disability and rehabilitative services to purchase services for individuals with a

mental illness or a developmental disability by providing money to supplement the appropriation for community based residential care programs established under IC 12-22-2 or community based residential programs established under IC 12-11-1.1-1.

A parent corporation and its subsidiaries shall each be considered joint employers of the corporation's, the parent's, or the subsidiaries' employees for purposes of sections 6 and 33 of this chapter. Both a lessor and a lessee of employees shall each be considered joint employers of the employees provided by the lessor to the lessee for purposes of sections 6 and 33 of this chapter. The term also includes an employer that provides on-the-job training under the federal School to Work Opportunities Act (20 U.S.C. 6101 et seq.) to the extent set forth under section 2.5 of this chapter. If the employer is insured, the term includes the employer's insurer so far as applicable. However, the inclusion of an employer's insurer within this definition does not allow an employer's insurer to avoid payment for services

rendered to an employee with the approval of the employer. The term does not include a nonprofit corporation that is recognized as tax exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code (as defined in IC 6-3-1-11(a)) to the extent the corporation enters into an independent contractor agreement with a person for the performance of youth coaching services on a part-time basis.
    (b) As used in this chapter, "employee" means every person, including a minor, in the service of another, under any contract of hire or apprenticeship written or implied, except one whose employment is both casual and not in the usual course of the trade, business, occupation, or profession of the employer.

The owner-operator may elect to be covered and have the owner-operator's drivers covered under a worker's compensation insurance policy or authorized self-insurance that insures the motor carrier if the owner-operator pays the premiums as requested by the motor carrier. An election by an owner-operator under this subdivision does not terminate the independent contractor status of the owner-operator for any purpose other than the purpose of this subdivision.
        (7) An unpaid participant under the federal School to Work Opportunities Act (20 U.S.C. 6101 et seq.) is an employee to the extent set forth under section 2.5 of this chapter.

If the employee is a minor who is not less than sixteen (16) years of age and who has not reached seventeen (17) years of age, and who at the time of the last exposure is employed, suffered, or permitted to work at any occupation which is not prohibited by law, the provisions of this subsection prescribing double the amount otherwise recoverable do not apply.

IC 36-7-14-39.3, AS AMENDED BY P.L.172-2011, SECTION 149, AND AS AMENDED BY P.L.220-2011, SECTION 664, IS CORRECTED AND AMENDED TO READ AS FOLLOWS [EFFECTIVE UPON PASSAGE]: Sec. 39.3. (a) As used in this section, "depreciable personal property" refers to:
        (1) all of the designated taxpayer's depreciable personal property that is located in the allocation area; and
        (2) all other depreciable property located and taxable on the designated taxpayer's site of operations within the allocation area.
    (b) As used in this section, "designated taxpayer" means any taxpayer designated by the commission in a declaratory resolution adopted or amended under section 15 or 17.5 of this chapter, and with respect to which the commission finds that taxes to be derived from the depreciable personal property in the allocation area, in excess of the taxes attributable to the base assessed value of that personal property, are needed to pay debt service or to provide security for bonds issued under section 25.1 of this chapter or to make payments or to provide security on leases payable under section 25.2 of this chapter in order to provide local public improvements for a particular allocation area. However, a commission may not designate a taxpayer after June 30, 1992, unless the commission also finds that:
        (1) the taxpayer's property in the allocation area will consist primarily of industrial, manufacturing, warehousing, research and development, processing, distribution, or transportation related projects or regulated amusement devices (as defined in IC 22-12-1-19.1) and related improvements; and
        (2) the taxpayer's property in the allocation area will not consist primarily of retail, commercial, or residential projects, other than an amusement park or tourism industry project.
    (c) The allocation provision of a declaratory resolution may modify the definition of "property taxes" under section 39(a) of this chapter to include taxes imposed under IC 6-1.1 on the depreciable personal property located and taxable on the site of operations of the designated taxpayers in accordance with the procedures and limitations set forth in this section and section 39 of this chapter. If such a modification is included in the resolution, for purposes of section 39 of this chapter the term "base assessed value" with respect to the depreciable personal property means the net assessed value of all the depreciable personal property as finally determined for the assessment date immediately preceding:
        (1) the effective date of the modification, for modifications adopted before July 1, 1995; and
        (2) the adoption date of the modification for modifications adopted after June 30, 1995;
as adjusted under section 39(h) of this chapter.
    (d) A declaratory resolution of a city redevelopment commission that is adopted before March 20, 1990, is legalized and validated as if it had been adopted under this section.
    (e) An action taken by a redevelopment commission before February 24, 1992, to designate a taxpayer, modify the definition of property taxes, or establish a base assessed value as described in this section, as in effect on February 24, 1992, is legalized and validated as if this section, as in effect on February 24, 1992, had been in effect on the date of the action.
    (f) The amendment made to this section by P.L.41-1992, does not affect actions taken pursuant to P.L.35-1990.

(a) Notwithstanding section 26(a) of this chapter, with respect to the allocation and distribution of property taxes for the accomplishment of a program adopted under section 32 of this chapter, "base assessed value" means the net assessed value of all of the land as finally determined for the assessment date immediately preceding the effective date of the allocation provision, as adjusted under section 26(g) 26(h) of this chapter. However, "base assessed value" does not include the value of real property improvements to the land.
    (b) The special fund established under section 26(b) of this chapter for the allocation area for a program adopted under section 32 of this chapter may be used only for purposes related to the accomplishment of the program, including the following:
        (1) The construction, rehabilitation, or repair of residential units within the allocation area.

        (6) To provide financial assistance to neighborhood development corporations to permit them to provide financial assistance for the purposes described in subdivision (5).
        (7) For property taxes first due and payable before 2009, to provide each taxpayer in the allocation area a credit for property tax replacement as determined under subsections (c) and (d). However, this credit may be provided by the commission only if the city-county legislative body establishes the credit by ordinance adopted in the year before the year in which the credit is provided.
    (c) The maximum credit that may be provided under subsection (b)(7) to a taxpayer in a taxing district that contains all or part of an allocation area established for a program adopted under section 32 of

this chapter shall be determined as follows:
        STEP ONE: Determine that part of the sum of the amounts described in IC 6-1.1-21-2(g)(1)(A) (repealed) and IC 6-1.1-21-2(g)(2) through IC 6-1.1-21-2(g)(5) (repealed) (before their repeal) that is attributable to the taxing district.
        STEP TWO: Divide:
            (A) that part of each county's eligible property tax replacement amount (as defined in IC 6-1.1-21-2 (repealed) (before its repeal)) for that year as determined under IC 6-1.1-21-4(a)(1) (repealed) (before its repeal) that is attributable to the taxing district; by
            (B) the amount determined under STEP ONE.
        STEP THREE: Multiply:
            (A) the STEP TWO quotient; by
            (B) the taxpayer's taxes (as defined in IC 6-1.1-21-2 (before its repeal)) (repealed) levied in the taxing district allocated to the allocation fund, including the amount that would have been allocated but for the credit.
    (d) Except as provided in subsection (g), the commission may determine to grant to taxpayers in an allocation area from its allocation fund a credit under this section, as calculated under subsection (c), by applying one-half (1/2) of the credit to each installment of taxes (as defined in IC 6-1.1-21-2 (before its repeal)) (repealed) that under IC 6-1.1-22-9 are due and payable in a year. Except as provided in subsection (g), one-half (1/2) of the credit shall be applied to each installment of taxes (as defined in IC 6-1.1-21-2 (before its repeal)). (repealed). The commission must provide for the credit annually by a resolution and must find in the resolution the following:
        (1) That the money to be collected and deposited in the allocation fund, based upon historical collection rates, after granting the credit will equal the amounts payable for contractual obligations from the fund, plus ten percent (10%) of those amounts.
        (2) If bonds payable from the fund are outstanding, that there is a debt service reserve for the bonds that at least equals the amount of the credit to be granted.
        (3) If bonds of a lessor under section 17.1 of this chapter or under IC 36-1-10 are outstanding and if lease rentals are payable from the fund, that there is a debt service reserve for those bonds that at least equals the amount of the credit to be granted.
If the tax increment is insufficient to grant the credit in full, the commission may grant the credit in part, prorated among all taxpayers.
    (e) Notwithstanding section 26(b) of this chapter, the special fund

established under section 26(b) of this chapter for the allocation area for a program adopted under section 32 of this chapter may only be used to do one (1) or more of the following:
        (1) Accomplish one (1) or more of the actions set forth in section 26(b)(2)(A) 26(b)(3)(A) through 26(b)(2)(H) 26(b)(3)(H) of this chapter.
        (2) Reimburse the consolidated city for expenditures made by the city in order to accomplish the housing program in that allocation area.
The special fund may not be used for operating expenses of the commission.
    (f) Notwithstanding section 26(b) of this chapter, the commission shall, relative to the special fund established under section 26(b) of this chapter for an allocation area for a program adopted under section 32 of this chapter, do the following before July 15 of each year:
        (1) Determine the amount, if any, by which the assessed value of the taxable property in the allocation area, when multiplied by the estimated tax rate of the allocation area, will exceed the amount of assessed value needed to produce the property taxes necessary to:
            (A) make the distribution required under section 26(b)(2) of this chapter;

            (A) to (B) make, when due, principal and interest payments on bonds described in section 26(b)(2) 26(b)(3) of this chapter;
            (B) to (C) pay the amount necessary for other purposes described in section 26(b)(2) 26(b)(3) of this chapter; and
            (C) to (D) reimburse the consolidated city for anticipated expenditures described in subsection (e)(2).
        (2) Provide a written notice to the county auditor, the legislative body of the consolidated city, and the officers who are authorized to fix budgets, tax rates, and tax levies under IC 6-1.1-17-5 for each of the other taxing units that is wholly or partly located within the allocation area. The notice must:
            (A) state the amount, if any, of excess assessed value that the commission has determined may be allocated to the respective taxing units in the manner prescribed in section 26(b)(1) of this chapter; or
            (B) state that the commission has determined that there is no excess assessed value that may be allocated to the respective taxing units in the manner prescribed in section 26(b)(1) of this chapter.
        The county auditor shall allocate to the respective taxing units the

amount, if any, of excess assessed value determined by the commission.
    (g) This subsection applies to an allocation area only to the extent that the net assessed value of property that is assessed as residential property under the rules of the department of local government finance is not included in the base assessed value. If property tax installments with respect to a homestead (as defined in IC 6-1.1-20.9-1 (before its repeal)) (repealed) are due in installments established by the department of local government finance under IC 6-1.1-22-9.5, each taxpayer subject to those installments in an allocation area is entitled to an additional credit under subsection (d) for the taxes (as defined in IC 6-1.1-21-2 (before its repeal)) (repealed) due in installments. The credit shall be applied in the same proportion to each installment of taxes (as defined in IC 6-1.1-21-2 (before its repeal)). (repealed).

    (b) A declaratory resolution adopted under section 16 of this chapter before the date set forth in IC 36-7-14-39(b) pertaining to declaratory

resolutions adopted under IC 36-7-14-15 may include a provision with respect to the allocation and distribution of property taxes for the purposes and in the manner provided in this section. A declaratory resolution previously adopted may include an allocation provision by the amendment of that declaratory resolution in accordance with the procedures set forth in section 18 of this chapter. The allocation provision may apply to all or part of the military base development area. The allocation provision must require that any property taxes subsequently levied by or for the benefit of any public body entitled to a distribution of property taxes on taxable property in the allocation area be allocated and distributed as follows:
        (1) Except as otherwise provided in this section, the proceeds of the taxes attributable to the lesser of:
            (A) the assessed value of the property for the assessment date with respect to which the allocation and distribution is made; or
            (B) the base assessed value;
        shall be allocated to and, when collected, paid into the funds of the respective taxing units.

        (2) (3) Except as otherwise provided in this section, property tax proceeds in excess of those described in subdivision subdivisions (1) and (2) shall be allocated to the development authority and, when collected, paid into an allocation fund for that allocation area that may be used by the development authority and only to do one (1) or more of the following:
            (A) Pay the principal of and interest and redemption premium on any obligations incurred by the development authority or any other entity for the purpose of financing or refinancing military base development or reuse activities in or directly serving or benefitting benefiting that allocation area.

            STEP TWO: Divide:
                (i) that part of each county's eligible property tax replacement amount (as defined in IC 6-1.1-21-2 (repealed)) (before its repeal)) for that year as determined under IC 6-1.1-21-4 (repealed) (before its repeal) that is attributable to the taxing district; by
                (ii) the STEP ONE sum.
            STEP THREE: Multiply:
                (i) the STEP TWO quotient; by
                (ii) the total amount of the taxpayer's taxes (as defined in IC 6-1.1-21-2 (repealed)) (before its repeal)) levied in the taxing district that have been allocated during that year to an allocation fund under this section.
            If not all the taxpayers in an allocation area receive the credit in full, each taxpayer in the allocation area is entitled to receive the same proportion of the credit. A taxpayer may not receive a credit under this section and a credit under section 32 of this chapter (before its repeal) in the same year.
            (F) Pay expenses incurred by the development authority for local public improvements or structures that were in the allocation area or directly serving or benefitting benefiting the allocation area.

                (ii) on a parcel of real property that has been classified as industrial property under the rules of the department of local government finance.
            However, the total amount of money spent for this purpose in any year may not exceed the total amount of money in the allocation fund that is attributable to property taxes paid by the industrial facilities described in this clause. The reimbursements under this clause must be made not more than three (3) years after the date on which the investments that are the basis for the increment financing are made.
        The allocation fund may not be used for operating expenses of the development authority.

            (A) Determine the amount, if any, by which property taxes payable to the allocation fund in the following year will exceed the amount of property taxes necessary to make, when due, principal and interest payments on bonds described in subdivision (2) (3) plus the amount necessary for other purposes described in subdivision subdivisions (2) and (3).
            (B) Provide a written notice to the appropriate county auditors and the fiscal bodies and other officers who are authorized to fix budgets, tax rates, and tax levies under IC 6-1.1-17-5 for each of the other taxing units that is wholly or partly located within the allocation area. The notice must:
                (i) state the amount, if any, of the excess property taxes that the development authority has determined may be paid to the respective taxing units in the manner prescribed in subdivision (1); or
                (ii) state that the development authority has determined that there is no excess assessed value that may be allocated to the respective taxing units in the manner prescribed in subdivision (1).
            The county auditors shall allocate to the respective taxing units the amount, if any, of excess assessed value determined by the development authority. The development authority may not authorize a payment to the respective taxing units under this subdivision if to do so would endanger the interest of the holders of bonds described in subdivision (2) (3) or lessors under section 24 of this chapter. Property taxes received by a

taxing unit under this subdivision before 2009 are eligible for the property tax replacement credit provided under IC 6-1.1-21 (repealed). (before its repeal).

        (2) the base assessed value.

    (f) Notwithstanding any other law, the assessed value of all taxable property in the allocation area, for purposes of tax limitation, property tax replacement, and the making of the budget, tax rate, and tax levy for each political subdivision in which the property is located is the lesser of:
        (1) the assessed value of the property as valued without regard to this section; or
        (2) the base assessed value.
    (g) If any part of the allocation area is located in an enterprise zone created under IC 5-28-15, the development authority shall create funds as specified in this subsection. A development authority that has obligations, bonds, or leases payable from allocated tax proceeds under subsection (b)(2) (b)(3) shall establish an allocation fund for the purposes specified in subsection (b)(2) (b)(3) and a special zone fund. The development authority shall, until the end of the enterprise zone phase out period, deposit each year in the special zone fund any amount in the allocation fund derived from property tax proceeds in excess of those described in subsection (b)(1) and (b)(2) from property located in the enterprise zone that exceeds the amount sufficient for the purposes specified in subsection (b)(2) (b)(3) for the year. The amount sufficient for purposes specified in subsection (b)(2) (b)(3) for the year shall be determined based on the pro rata part of such current property tax proceeds from the part of the enterprise zone that is within the allocation area as compared to all such current property tax proceeds

derived from the allocation area. A development authority that does not have obligations, bonds, or leases payable from allocated tax proceeds under subsection (b)(2) (b)(3) shall establish a special zone fund and deposit all the property tax proceeds in excess of those described in subsection (b)(1) and (b)(2) that are derived from property in the enterprise zone in the fund. The development authority that creates the special zone fund shall use the fund (based on the recommendations of the urban enterprise association) for programs in job training, job enrichment, and basic skill development that are designed to benefit residents and employers in the enterprise zone or for other purposes specified in subsection (b)(2), (b)(3), except that where reference is made in subsection (b)(2) (b)(3) to an allocation area it shall refer for purposes of payments from the special zone fund only to that part of the allocation area that is also located in the enterprise zone. The programs shall reserve at least one-half (1/2) of their enrollment in any session for residents of the enterprise zone.
    (h) After each general reassessment under IC 6-1.1-4, the department of local government finance shall adjust the base assessed value one (1) time to neutralize any effect of the general reassessment on the property tax proceeds allocated to the military base development district under this section. After each annual adjustment under IC 6-1.1-4-4.5, the department of local government finance shall adjust the base assessed value to neutralize any effect of the annual adjustment on the property tax proceeds allocated to the military base development district under this section. However, the adjustments under this subsection may not include the effect of property tax abatements under IC 6-1.1-12.1, and these adjustments may not produce less property tax proceeds allocable to the military base development district under subsection (b)(2) (b)(3) than would otherwise have been received if the general reassessment or annual adjustment had not occurred. The department of local government finance may prescribe procedures for county and township officials to follow to assist the department in making the adjustments.
