Application of regulation
3(1)  This Regulation applies only in respect of the taxation years 1999 to

respect of a taxation year only where

acceptable to and contain the information prescribed by the municipality.


Calculation of allocation of assessment
5(1)  If the conditions in section 3(2) are met with respect to a regional

method that was used by the municipality in the year preceding the first
year in which an assessment using the income approach to value is prepared;

     (b)  prepare an allocation to each component of the total value of
all components determined under clause (a) by

               (i)  dividing the value for each component determined
under clause (a) by the total value of all components so determined to
determine the percentage that the value of each component is of the total
value, and

               (ii) multiplying the percentage determined under
subclause (i) for each component by the total assessment prepared using the
income approach to value;

     (c)  annually prepare an allocation of the total assessment to each
component by using the same income approach to value that was used in
preparing the assessment;

     (d)  prepare an annual allocation of assessment for each component
by

               (i)  determining the difference in valuation for the
component as calculated under clauses (b) and (c), and

               (ii) increasing or decreasing the allocation of value
for the component calculated under clause (b) for each taxation year set
out in the Table at the end of this section by a yearly increment equal to
the corresponding percentage of the difference or valuation that is
specified for that year in column 2 of that Table.

(2)  Where the assessed person first makes application under section
3(2)(c) in respect of a year after 1999, the percentage increments for the
purposes of subsection (1)(d)(ii) are set out in Column 3 of the Table at
the end of this section.
