Notes of Decisions

As to rounding up so as not to lose any part of levy in arriving at statutorily required “even amount of dollars and cents,” tax rate is only way of expressing levy and calculating rate is part of levy process thus requiring that assessors provide procedure to ensure that excess is not assessed. Dennehy v. Dept. of Revenue, 305 Or 595, 756 P2d 13 (1988)
