Last equalized assessment roll.—The proper base roll to be used when dividing property tax revenues between taxing agencies and a redevelopment agency is the assessment roll prepared annually and which becomes the last equalized roll on August 20, not the adjusted assessment roll made later in the tax year as the result of assessment appeals board decisions and after a redevelopment plan ordinance had been adopted.
