The rate of tax authorized by and levied under this Charter, except levies for debt service, shall be subject to the same provisions for reduction as if the general law in effect for the real property tax levies of non-charter cities where applicable.  If this section cannot be given effect for the tax year 1976, the tax reduction factor for the tax year 1976 shall apply to the tax year 1977 as well as the tax reduction factor for 1977, if any.
