(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

component as calculated under clauses (b) and (c), and
