Article 4. Maximum Property Tax Rates* †
2266.1. Maximum rate for special districts when roll not based on full cash value. In the event that a special district employs a system of ad valorem property taxation in which the district assessment roll is not based upon the full cash value of the assessed property, the provisions of Section 2266 shall not apply to such district, and this section shall provide an alternate procedure to the other provisions of this article for establishing the maximum property tax rate of such district.
The maximum property tax rate which may be levied by, or on behalf of, a special district subject to the provisions of this section shall be a rate equivalent to the following:
(1) The rate established for such special district pursuant to the provisions of Section 2263, plus
(2) A rate obtained by multiplying the rate determined pursuant to subdivision (1) by the percentage change in the total assessed value of property within the district as shown on the current equalized secured assessment roll of the county, and the total assessed value of property within the district as shown on the equalized secured assessment roll of the county for the 1972–1973 fiscal year.
As used in this section, "total assessed value" shall have the same meaning as in Section 2266.

† Section 60 of Stats. 1979, Ch. 282, in effect July 24, 1979, provided that Article 4 shall not apply to property tax rates for the 1979–80 fiscal year.
