Whenever, by eminent domain proceedings, the State of Oregon or any political subdivision thereof acquires title to any real property upon which property taxes have been levied for the fiscal year in which such property is acquired, the state or the political subdivision thereof shall pay such proportion of said taxes as the period from the date of acquisition until the end of the fiscal year bears to the entire fiscal year.
