installment tax billing in the current year, be treated in the same manner as
certified assessed valuations. Where estimated assessed valuations are used,

actual certified assessed valuations later received from the other counties,

installment. A county using the estimated billing system shall complete and
mail the adjusted second installment tax billing on or before August 1.
