(a) Upon request of the district, the Controller shall use in computing the "40-cent, 30-cent, and 10-cent tax amounts" under Section 15732 the difference between the total assessed valuation of property in a district as shown on the equalized assessment roll for the current fiscal year and the assessed valuation of property as shown on the equalized assessment roll for the current fiscal year, in excess of 2 percent of the total assessed valuation, with respect to which revenues of the district taxes levied in the 1954-1955 fiscal year, or thereafter, have been impounded by the county auditor pursuant to Section 14240. Beginning with the 1981-82 fiscal year, the amount in excess of 0.5 percent of the total assessed valuation shall be used in the computation. If the request is received prior to August 1, 1955, with respect to the impounding of revenues of taxes levied during the 1954-1955 fiscal year, the Controller shall recompute the annual repayment of the district due during the 1955-1956 fiscal year on the basis of the reduced assessed valuation, and, on or before September 1, 1955, notify the officers and board referred to in Section 15741 of the recomputed annual repayment for the 1955-1956 fiscal year, and of the recomputed amount to be deducted from the State School Fund apportionment to the district during the 1955-1956 fiscal year.
(b) Whenever, after July 1, 1955, the county auditor notifies the Superintendent of Public Instruction and the Controller of the release of impounded tax revenues to the school district, the Controller shall add to the annual repayment of the district, for the first fiscal year or second fiscal year next succeeding that in which the notification of release was made, that amount by which the annual repayment of the district for a previous fiscal year was reduced by reason of the exclusion of assessed valuation with respect to tax revenues impounded and thereafter released.
(c) The amount of annual repayment and deduction, increased or reduced as required by this section, shall be the amount deducted by the Controller for the purposes of Sections 15735, 15741, and 15742 for the fiscal year in which the increase or reduction occurs.
(d) If a request is received from a school district and an annual repayment reduced pursuant to subdivision (a), Section 15736 shall not apply with respect to any tax revenues to which subdivision (a) applies.
