20which territory has been annexed, or from which territory has

6of residents stated on the written notice that is to be sent to
7the Department of Revenue is true and accurate. The verified
8statement of the county shall accompany the written notice.

23municipality and to any other municipality or county affected
24by the annexation or disconnection shall be adjusted in

1disconnected. The adjustment shall be made no later than 30
2days after the Department of Revenue's receipt of the written
3notice of annexation or disconnection described in this
