     (7)  Notwithstanding any other provision of this Charter, if a

the other taxing authority if the city had continued to assess businesses,
calculated in accordance with subsection (3), unless the other taxing
authority and any other municipality that also levies rates on its behalf
agree otherwise.

     (2)  The city shall raise the amount mentioned in subsection (1) by
adjusting the rate levied within the city on behalf of the other taxing
authority pursuant to section 299(b), either at a uniform rate or, by
agreement with the other taxing authority, by means of a uniform rate
multiplied by the applicable mill rate factors set pursuant to section
299.3.

     (3)  The following methods shall be used for calculating amounts that
would have been levied on behalf of other taxing authorities for the
purposes of subsection (1):

               (a)  determine the amount raised by the mill rate set by
the other taxing authority in the current year applied to assessments of
land and improvements used or intended to be used for business purposes
within the city that are within the boundaries of the other taxing
authority, and multiply that amount by 33%;

               (b)  add the amount obtained by the calculation in
clause (a) to the amount raised in the current year by the mill rate set by
the other taxing authority applied to land and improvements assessments
within the city that are within the boundaries of the other taxing
authority; 

               (c)  increase the mill rate to be levied within the city
for the other taxing authority to raise the amount determined in clause
(b).

exempt or partially exempt any farm land or improvements from taxation
pursuant to section 262(3), the city shall raise each year, on behalf of
any other taxing authority on whose behalf it levies taxes, an amount equal

authority and any other municipality that also levies rates on its behalf
agree otherwise.

     (2)  The city shall raise the amount mentioned in subsection (1) by
adjusting the rate levied within the city on behalf of the other taxing

authority had the phasing-in bylaw not been adopted.

     299.2(1)  Where the incidence of taxation in the city changes as a
result of a revaluation pursuant to The Assessment Management Agency Act,

increase or decrease resulting from revaluation to be permitted in each
year of the plan for land, improvements or businesses, or for any class of
land, improvements or businesses, and those limits need not be the same for
tax increases and decreases or for each category or class of category to
which the limits apply;

               (b)  specify the method of funding the difference in
each year of the plan between any limit on tax increase set pursuant to

subsection (1) shall:

               (a)  ensure that the difference between any limit set
pursuant to subsection (2) and the tax increase that would otherwise result
from revaluation in each year of the plan is funded in each current year;

               (b)  exclude from the plan tax increases or decreases
resulting from any change in assessed values that is not the result of
revaluation; and

               (c)  ensure that the full amount of any tax increase or
decrease resulting from revaluation is in effect after completion of the
tax phase-in plan.

          (5)  A tax phase-in plan established pursuant to subsection
(1):

               (a)  shall be implemented by adjusting the levy set
pursuant to section 299; and
