Annual Service Charge = Base Annual Service Charge plus Additional Annual Service Charge
Base Annual Service Charge – Represents the amount to be collected at least equal to the otherwise applicable tax in the last full tax year prior to the Financial Agreement execution.
Additional Annual Service Charge – Represents the service charge to be collected if amounts from the base annual service charge are not sufficient to pay debt service, interest, and administrative expenses on the bonds pursuant to a formula in the Financial Agreement.
Service charges are calculated for each calendar year effective January 1, divided into quarterly payments due and payable.
Trustee makes debt service payments with PILOT revenues received and distributes County Share (equal to 5% of Annual Service Charge) quarterly.
