If the director of revenue and finance determines that a claim for military service tax exemption has been allowed by a board of supervisors which is not justifiable under the law and not substantiated by proper facts, the director may, at any time within thirty-six months from July 1 of the year in which the claim is allowed, set aside the allowance. Notice of the disallowance shall be given to the county auditor of the county in which the claim has been improperly granted and a written notice of the disallowance shall also be addressed to the claimant at the claimant's last known address. The claimant or the board of supervisors may seek judicial review of the action of the director of revenue and finance in accordance with chapter 17A. If a claim is disallowed by the director of revenue and finance and a petition for judicial review is not filed with respect to the disallowance, the credits allowed and paid from the general fund of the state become a lien upon the property on which the credit was originally granted, if still in the hands of the claimant and not in the hands of a bona fide purchaser, the amount so erroneously paid shall be collected by the county treasurer in the same manner as other taxes, and the collections shall be returned to the department of revenue and finance and credited to the general fund of the state. The director of revenue and finance may institute legal proceedings against a military service tax exemption claimant for the collection of payments made on disallowed exemptions.
