Article 2. Basic Revenue Allocations

Section 96

96. 1979–80 fiscal year allocation. For the 1979–80 fiscal year only, property tax revenues shall be apportioned to each jurisdiction pursuant to this section and Section 96.2 or their predecessors by the county auditor, subject to the allocation and payment of funds as provided for in subdivision (b) of Section 33670 of the Health and Safety Code, as follows:

(a) For each tax rate area, each local agency shall be allocated an amount of property tax revenue equal to the sum of the amount of property tax revenue allocated pursuant to Section 26912 of the Government Code to each local agency for the 1978–79 fiscal year, as allocated to that tax rate area pursuant to paragraph (1) of subdivision (f) of former Section 98, modified by any adjustments required by Section 99, and the amount of state assistance payments allocated to that tax rate area pursuant to paragraph (2) of subdivision (f) of Section 96.5.

(b) The auditor shall determine the school entities' share of the 1979–80 property tax revenue by subtracting the state assistance payments allocated to local agencies within the county for the 1978–79 fiscal year from the aggregate amount of property tax revenue allocated pursuant to Section 26912 of the Government Code to all school entities within the county for the 1978–79 fiscal year. The amount of the difference shall be the school entities' share of property taxes for fiscal year 1979–80, and shall be allocated to the school entities in the same proportion as the allocation made to those entities for the 1978–79 fiscal year. The amount for each school entity shall be allocated among its tax rate areas pursuant to paragraph (3) of subdivision (f) of Section 96.5.

(c) The difference between the total amount of property tax revenue and the amounts allocated pursuant to subdivisions (a) and (b) shall be allocated pursuant to Section 96.5.

(d) For the purposes of computing property tax allocations for the 1978–79 fiscal year and each year thereafter, the county auditor shall recompute the 1978–79 property tax allocation for any city that levied a utility users' tax prior to 1978 but repealed that tax prior to December 31, 1977. For these cities, the term "property tax revenues for the 1975–76, 1976–77, and 1977–78 fiscal years" shall be deemed to include the aggregate of property tax and utility users' tax for those respective years.
