The proceeds of the sale of tax-defaulted property deposited in the delinquent tax sale trust fund shall be distributed as provided in Chapter 1.3 (commencing with Section 4671). However, the taxes and assessments which constitute the amounts required to redeem the tax-defaulted property shall, for the purposes of this chapter, be distributed as follows:
(a) The amount available for distribution shall be prorated on the basis of those taxes and assessments between apportioned levies and unapportioned levies.
(b) The pro rata share for unapportioned levies shall be prorated between the amount of tax levies and the amount of assessment levies. The pro rata share for unapportioned tax levies shall be distributed to funds on the basis prescribed in Chapter 1.3 (commencing with Section 4671). The pro rata share for unapportioned assessment levies shall be distributed to the assessment funds on the basis prescribed in subdivision (a) of Section 4710.
(c) The pro rata share for apportioned levies shall be distributed to the tax losses reserve fund.
The amount cancelled by the sale shall be entered on the secured taxes receivable accounts. Any cancelled amounts which were apportioned at the time of levy in the manner authorized by this chapter shall be entered on the apportioned tax resources accounts, and this cancellation shall be borne by the tax losses reserve fund.
