ARTICLE 8. Reapportionment of Assessments [46325 - 46331]
  ( Article 8 added by Stats. 1951, Ch. 391. )


When any tract of land upon which any assessment provided for by this division has been levied is subdivided into smaller parcels the board shall, upon its own motion or upon written application therefor signed by all of the landowners of record within the subdivided tract, reapportion the assessment upon such tract in such manner as will, in the judgment of the board, charge each of the smaller parcels with a just portion of the assessment. Such reapportionment shall be entered in the minutes of the board and, upon such entry, shall then become final. If an application for reapportionment is signed by less than all of the landowners within the subdivided tract, or if reapportionment is upon motion of the board, the board may make such reapportionment only after a hearing for which notice to all persons interested shall have been given in the manner prescribed by the board.

(Amended by Stats. 1969, Ch. 1086.)


Supplementary assessment rolls showing the reapportionments shall be made separately for land lying within different counties.

(Added by Stats. 1951, Ch. 391.)


The board shall file with the treasurer of each county in which any portion of the tract so subdivided is situated, the supplementary assessment roll relating to the land in that county.

(Amended by Stats. 1992, Ch. 1020, Sec. 123.5. Effective January 1, 1993.)


After the supplementary assessment rolls have been filed the assessment is an assessment upon each of the smaller parcels in accordance with the reapportionment and not an assessment upon the tract as a whole.

(Added by Stats. 1951, Ch. 391.)


The supplementary assessment rolls are a part of and amendatory of the assessment rolls theretofore filed for all purposes.

(Added by Stats. 1951, Ch. 391.)


The reapportionment shall in nowise affect the assessment except as to the land included in the supplementary assessment rolls.
