Proposition 19

The current law allows for a personal residence to be distributed to a child without a reassessment regardless of the value of the residence. In addition, other real property in the aggregate of one million dollars can avoid reassessment.

Proposition 19 passed on November 3, 2020 significantly limits the ability of parents to leave real estate to their children without a reassessment of property taxes.

On December 11, 2020 the California Board of Equalization (BOE) issued guidance to the County Assessors. The BOE states Proposition 19 adds new provisions for a base year transfer of a primary residence.
