Determine the total estimated market value of the special assessing unit or portion thereof by summing the estimated market value of each class.#### (3)

Divide the estimated market value for each class by the total estimated market value of the special assessing unit or portion thereof. Such quotient, as expressed as a percentage to at least four places to the right of the decimal point, shall be the current percentage of each class for such special assessing unit or portion thereof.## 3.

Where there was no taxable real property in a class in a portion on the final assessment roll completed and filed in nineteen hundred eighty-nine, the local base proportion, base percentages and current percentages for such portion shall be determined as provided by this subdivision for each tax levy based upon an assessment roll filed subsequent to the assessment roll on which such property first appears.### (a)

The local base proportions shall be the adjusted proportions or adjusted base proportions, whichever are appropriate, determined pursuant to this section for the assessment roll on which such property first appears.### (b)

The base percentage for each class shall be determined as follows:#### (1)

For each class other than the class appearing for the first time, determine the estimated market value by dividing the taxable assessed value of the real property in the class in the portion on the final assessment roll on which the new class first appeared by the class equalization rate determined for such class in such portion on such roll.#### (2)

For the class appearing for the first time, determine the estimated market value of such class by dividing the taxable assessed value of the real property in such class on the final assessment roll on which such class first appeared by the class equalization rate determined for such class in the special assessing unit on such final assessment roll.#### (3)

Determine the total estimated market value of the portion by summing the estimated market value of each class.#### (4)

Divide the estimated market value for each class by the total estimated market value of the portion. Such quotient, as expressed as a percentage to at least four places to the right of the decimal point, shall be the base percentage of each class for such portion.### (c)

Current percentages shall be determined as otherwise provided by this section, except that until the commissioner can determine a class equalization rate for the new class in such portion, the class equalization rate for the class in the special assessing unit shall be used in lieu thereof.## 4.

Where there is a new portion that did not appear on the final assessment roll completed and filed in nineteen hundred eighty-nine, the local base proportion, base percentages and current percentages for each class in such portion shall be determined as provided in subdivision three of this section for a new class in a portion.## 5.

Adjusted base proportions. No later than five days subsequent to the filing of the final assessment roll, the legislative body of each special assessing unit shall adjust such current base proportions to reflect the addition to the assessment roll of new property, additions to or improvements of existing property or formerly exempt property or the full or partial removal from the assessment roll of property by reason of fire, demolition, destruction or new exemption or any change in the class designation of any parcel of real property subsequent to the taxable status date of the latest final assessment roll for which class equalization rates have been finally adopted. The current base proportions so adjusted shall be known as the adjusted base proportions.## 6.

Upon determination of the adjusted base proportions, the legislative body of the special assessing unit shall certify within five days to the commissioner, on forms prescribed by the commissioner, the adjusted base proportions as computed pursuant to subdivision five of this section for each class applicable to the special assessing unit and each portion contained therein; the assessed value of all property in each class for the special assessing unit and each portion contained therein; the net change in assessed value for each class on the assessment roll resulting from the additions to or removals from the assessment roll referred to in subdivision five of this section for the special assessing unit and each portion contained therein; and the net change in assessed value for each class on the assessment roll resulting from changes other than those referred to in subdivision five of this section for the special assessing unit and each portion therein.## 7.

If subsequent to and within sixty days after the certification of the adjusted base proportions as final by the legislative body of the special assessing unit, should said legislative body discover that a mathematical error was made in the determination of the adjusted base proportions, the legislative body of the special assessing unit which has made such error shall redetermine such adjusted base proportions, subject to the procedures set forth in this section for the review and certification of adjusted base proportions, prior to the levy of taxes for that fiscal year. If the redetermination cannot be made prior to the extension of taxes for that fiscal year, the tax levying body shall adjust the tax levy for the ensuing fiscal year to account for the improper apportionment of taxes which resulted from the error in the determination of the adjusted base proportions.## 8.

Notwithstanding any other provision of this article, the calculations required by this section shall not apply to town or county special districts or zones of assessment.
