96.4. Allocations; redevelopment project areas. (a) Notwithstand-ing any other provision of this part or Part 8 (commencing with Section 4651) of Division 1, when all loans, advances, or indebtedness incurred to finance or refinance a redevelopment project subject to a reimbursement agreement validated by Section 33608 of the Health and Safety Code have been paid as provided in subdivision (b) of Section 33670 of the Health and Safety Code, the portion of taxes specified in subdivision (b) of this section that is produced by property within the redevelopment project area and that would otherwise have been allocated and distributed to the city, shall instead be allocated and distributed as follows:

(1) Fifty percent of these tax revenues shall be distributed to the affected school entities specified in Section 95 until the school entities have received the amount, including interest, specified in this subdivision. The amount of taxes allocated under this subdivision shall be equal to the aggregate amount of taxes that would have otherwise been received by the school entities in the years 2006 to 2014, inclusive, but for the reimbursement paid to the city pursuant to the agreement specified in Section 33608 of the Health and Safety Code, plus simple interest on the unpaid balance at an annual rate of 7 percent, accruing from and after January 1, 2006, until payment in full.

(2) The balance of these tax revenues shall be paid to the city, including the remainder of the portion of taxes specified in subdivision (b) available after the distribution made pursuant to paragraph (1).

(b) This section applies to that portion of the property tax revenues from property within the redevelopment project area subject to Section 33608 of the Health and Safety Code that is in excess of the property tax revenues that would be produced by the rate upon which the tax is levied each year by or for the city upon the total sum of the assessed value of the taxable property in the redevelopment project area as shown upon the assessment roll used in connection with the taxation of the property by the city, last equalized prior to the effective date of the ordinance approving the final redevelopment plan for that redevelopment project area.

(c) For purposes of all other allocations of property taxes under this code, the amount allocated to school entities by this section shall be treated as having been allocated to the city.

(d) The county auditor may assess the city for, and the city shall pay to the county auditor, the actual costs of making the reallocation and payment of property taxes required by this section.
