The Importance Of Working With A Residential Property Tax Specialist
Working with the right business professionals can make all the difference. When it comes time to secure a Proposition 58 Exclusion From Property Tax Reassessment, through Prop 58, that could not be more true. The process of obtaining your exclusion from property tax reassessment can be littered with pitfalls. Even just one small mistake can be the difference between obtaining an exclusion or not. Retaining a Parent’s or Grandparent’s low Proposition 13 property tax rate can save you potentially thousands of dollars each year. That is why it is important to have a good Private Money Lender, Attorney and or California Property Tax Specialist on your side to help guide you.
When providing clients with a third party loan to a trust, we always recommend that they work with either a Trust & Estate Attorney, Qualified Trust Administrator and or a Property Tax Specialist. Attorneys and Residential Property Tax Specialists provide different services. Some California Residential Property Tax Consultants specialize in assisting clients in obtaining a Proposition 58 exclusion from property tax reassessment. Their expertise in these matters can be invaluable. The best of them even have experience working for the County as a Property Tax Assessor. This gives them a great deal of insight into what the assessors office will need in order to grant your exclusion. It can be especially helpful in complex situations where time is of the essence. In California, you only have three years to file for the exclusion from property tax reassessment. A long process can also delay the distribution of a trust in some cases.
The complexities of obtaining an exclusion from property tax reassessment should not be understated. Unless you deal with California’s Proposition 58 Exclusions From Property Tax Reassessments on a regular basis, it can be difficult to avoid mishaps. Here are just a few examples of issues that a qualified California Property Tax Consultant can assist you with.
Common Proposition 58 Exclusion From Property Tax Reassessment Mistakes:
Not conducting the 3rd party financing properly and causing a property tax reassessment to occur.
Not keeping track of each eligible transferor’s $1 million limit; thereby exceeding the $1 million limit and triggering a reassessment for the overage.
Avoiding situations where an acquiring beneficiary lends money to the trust when funds are needed to make an even distribution. The California Board of Equalization views this as a child buying out another child as opposed to a parent to child transfer. The exclusion for reassessment requires a transfer from parent to child.
These are just a few examples of circumstances where a California Property Tax Specialist can assist you. If you are in need of a third party loan for a trust, a qualified Trust & Estate Attorney or a Property Tax Consultant referral, please call us at 877-464-1066 so that we may assist you.
