of its exempt status, it shall be listed for taxation by the transferee as of the
date of acquisition and shall be appraised in accordance with its true value as of
January 1 preceding the date of acquisition; and the property shall be taxed for
the fiscal year of the taxing unit beginning on July 1 of the year in which it is

the listing, appraisal, and assessment of the property in the same manner as that
provided for listings made as of January 1.
In the event real property exempt as of January 1 is, prior to July 1, acquired from
a governmental unit that by contract is making payments in lieu of taxes to the taxing
unit for the fiscal period beginning July 1 of the year in which the property is acquired,
the tax on such property for the fiscal period beginning on July 1 immediately following
acquisition shall be one half of the amount of the tax that would have been imposed
if the property had been listed for taxation as of January 1.
