(2) For state fiscal years before the 1998-1999 state fiscal year, the department of treasury shall pay to each county each year, following the year the amount was calculated, an amount equal to the product of the state equalized value of inventory as certified by the department of treasury under former section 132 of the single business tax act, 1975 PA 228, times the county property tax rate for the county as reported each year to the department of treasury.
(3) For state fiscal years after the 1995-1996 state fiscal year in which payment is made under this section, the payment under this section shall be from the collections, exclusive of the amount designated for assistance to townships, cities, and villages under section 10 of article IX of the state constitution of 1963, of the sales tax levied at a rate of 4%.
(4) Payments made under this section, and the allocation and appropriation of amounts necessary to make the payments under this section, shall include interest which shall accrue on the unpaid balance. Interest shall accrue at the rate determined under section 13b.
(5) A payment required to be made under this section shall not be delayed so as to cause interest to accrue pursuant to subsection (4) unless the delay in any payment is authorized by a written directive issued and signed by the governor that conforms to and is subject to section 13b(2) and (3).
(6) Amounts required to be paid pursuant to this section that are subject to an unavoidable delay of a de minimis period or that are withheld or set off pursuant to law in the settlement or adjustment of an obligation or debt due to this state are not subject to subsections (4) and (5).

For an authority to be eligible for compensation under this section, that authority shall have an authorization to have taxes levied for its use as provided by law. School districts, intermediate school districts, community college districts, vocational education districts, and special education districts are not included under this section.
