That information shall also show any property tax rate authorized or levied pursuant to the provisions of Article 6 (commencing with Section 2285), Article 7 (commencing with Section 2295), and Article 8 (commencing with Section 2305). Information with respect to any rate levied pursuant to Section 2270 shall also indicate the rate levied to pay interest and redemption charges on bonded indebtedness, the rate levied to pay the cost of retirement and pension benefits and the rate levied to make payments to special funds as required by charter. The Controller shall, by regulation, require any tax rate exempt from rate limitations imposed by this chapter to be reported in the manner specified by this section.

In the event that the Controller determines that an error has occurred in establishing a property tax rate levied pursuant to any provision of this chapter, he shall immediately notify the local agency of such error and the local agency shall reduce its property tax rate by an appropriate amount for the next succeeding fiscal year. In the event that a local agency fails to make such a reduction in its property tax rate, the Controller shall request the Attorney General to bring an action under Chapter 2 (commencing with Section 1084) of Title 1 of Part 3 of the Code of Civil Procedure to force a reduction in the rate.

(Amended by Stats. 1977, Ch. 309.)


If a local agency fails to file the report required by Section 2325 by October 15, the Controller, in the succeeding fiscal year, shall reduce by 10 percent or five thousand dollars ($5,000), whichever is less, the payment he is required to make to such agency based on claims filed pursuant to Section 16113 of the Government Code.
