of assessment or reassessment pursuant to any taxing statute,

fact or a finding by such taxing authority that the fair market value

with the provisions of this Agreement; or
(b) such taxing authority notifies either the Purchaser or the Vendor that it
intends to issue such notice of assessment or reassessment;
then, subject to the rights, if any, of the Purchaser and the Vendor to object or appeal

the foregoing, the Parties agree that the Purchase Price in the amount determined as
aforesaid and paid by the execution by the Purchaser of a demand promissory note
substantially in the form attached hereto as Schedule “A” shall be amended so that the
