170.0007 Application of Inflation Factor. The requirement in Revenue and Taxation Code section 51(a)(1)(B) to round the annual inflation factor to the nearest one-thousandth of one percent is applicable as of the effective date of the legislation, January 1, 1997; it should not be applied retroactively. Thus, that inflation factor should be applied to timely assessments and escape assessments for the 1997-98 assessment year.
For the 1995-96 and 1996-97 assessment years, when the inflation factor was less than two percent, the Board advised assessors that the inflation factor should be rounded to the nearest one hundredth of one percent. Accordingly, the Board's policy of rounding the inflation factor to the nearest one hundredth of one percent would apply for both timely assessments and escape assessments for the 1995-96 and/or 1996-97 assessment years. C 3/18/1999.
