(a) Notwithstanding Section 6103, the State Board of Equalization shall establish a schedule of fees for filing and processing the statements and maps or plats that are required to be filed with the board pursuant to Section 54902.
(1) The schedule shall not include any fee that exceeds the reasonably anticipated cost to the board of performing the work to which the fee relates, or an amount equal to 25 percent of the anticipated total tax revenue that will be collected by the city or district during the first full fiscal year, beginning on July 1, that the boundary changes are effective, as determined by the county auditor, whichever amount is less.
(2) For purposes of this subdivision, "anticipated total tax revenue" means the tax revenues that will be allocated to the city or district from all property located within the boundaries of the city or district, including the area affected by the boundary change.
(b) The city, district, or executive officer of a local agency formation commission, forwarding the statement to the tax or assessment levying authority for filing pursuant to Section 54900, shall accompany the statement with the necessary fee for transmittal to the board. However, with respect to a newly created city or district, no fee shall be required until the time that the city or district receives its first revenues.
