  2.  No maintenance tax shall be levied or assessed against any lands or other property which is not protected from overflow by the levees and other improvements of the district.  No such tax heretofore levied or assessed against any such lands or other property shall be collected by or for the district, and the board of supervisors of the district is hereby authorized and empowered to strike from the levee tax books of the district any unpaid maintenance tax which has been levied or assessed against any such lands or other property.
