The conservancy is authorized to lease interest in real property acquired in accordance with this chapter. When the leases are made to private individuals or groups, the conservancy shall annually, upon appropriation of the amounts by the Legislature, transfer 24 percent of the gross income of the leases to the county where the interests in real property are situated.
The county shall distribute any payment received by it pursuant to this section to itself, to each revenue district for which the county assesses and collects real property taxes or assessments, and to every other taxing agency within the county where the property is situated. The amount distributable to the county and each revenue district or other taxing agency shall be proportionate to the ratio that the amount of the taxes and assessments of each on similar real property similarly situated within that part of the county embracing the smallest in area of the revenue districts or other taxing agencies other than the county, levied for the fiscal year next preceding, bears to the combined amount of the taxes and assessments of all those districts and agencies, including the county, on the property levied for that year. The county auditor shall determine and certify the amounts distributable to the board of supervisors, that shall thereupon order the making of the distribution.
Any money distributed pursuant to this section to any county, revenue district, or other taxing agency shall be deposited to the credit of the same fund as any taxes or assessments on any taxable similar real property similarly situated.
Where a county receives a payment pursuant to this section in an amount of twenty-five dollars ($25) or less in respect to any parcel of leased property, all of that payment shall be distributed to the county for deposit in the county general fund.
