Trust & Estate Loan Benefit Calculator

Trust & Estate Loan Benefit Calculator

When you are considering keeping an inherited home from a parent and need to borrow money to buyout siblings or beneficiaries, it is important to make sure that it makes financial sense to do so. To assist you in doing so, we created the Commercial Loan Corporation Trust & Estate Loan Benefit Calculator.

Our trust and estate loan benefit calculator will help you quickly and easily determine if it makes sense to apply for a Proposition 58 exclusion from reassessment and take out a trust or estate loan. The loan benefit calculator compares your property tax savings to your estimated loan expenses and determines approximately how long it will take to recover those costs.  If you plan on keeping the home longer than it will take to recoup the fees, then the loan is of benefit; if not then it would make more sense to not conduct the loan.

So watch this short video on our Trust & Estate loan benefit calculator and then try the calculator yourself at https://cloanc.com/nprd-calculator/

California Proposition 58 and Property Taxes

When inheriting real estate from a parent, one of the primary considerations in determining if you will keep or sell the property is often the expenses associated with the home. Typically one of the greatest expenses is the homes property taxes. In California, Proposition 58 grants qualifying children the ability to retain a parents low Proposition 13 protected property tax rate. Doing so could mean a savings of thousands of dollars each year. Commercial Loan Corporation helps beneficiaries and heirs qualify for their Prop 58 property tax benefits by providing bridge loans to trusts and probate estates so that an even distribution can be made.

Information About Proposition 58

In 1986, California’s Proposition 58 became effective and with certain limitations, it allows for the exclusion from reassessment of property taxes on real estate transfers between a parent and child. In the State of California, real estate is reassessed at market value if it the home is either sold or transferred. The property value reassessment may cause property taxes to increase dramatically in some cases. Preventing a property tax reassessment may save a beneficiary or heir thousands of dollars annually depending on the difference between the existing assessed value and the current reassessed property value. If the transfer of property is between a parent and child, under certain circumstances the property will not be reassessed if all required conditions are met. If applicable, an equal distribution must be made to all beneficiaries and a beneficiary is not permitted to contribute personal funds to equalize the distribution to qualify for an exclusion from property tax reassessment. An application must also be properly filed in a appropriate amount of time to be eligible for a Proposition 58 exclusion from property tax reassessment. When done properly, the new owner’s taxes are calculated on the parents established Proposition 13 factored base year value, instead of the current market value.

California Proposition 58 Limitations

There are some limitations to Proposition 58. For instance, on non primary residences transfers of the first $1 million of real property. The $1 million exclusion applies separately to each eligible transferor. These transfers may be result of a sale, gift, or inheritance. A transfer via a trust also qualifies for this exclusion. Additionally, when applicable an equal distribution must be made to all beneficiaries and a beneficiary is not permitted to contribute personal funds to equalize a trust distribution. In the situation where fund are needed to make an equal distribution, a third party loan is required.  That is where Commercial Loan Corporation can assist you by providing a bridge loan to the trust or estate. The Commercial Loan Corporation third party bridge loan provides enough cash to the trust or estate so that all parties can receive an equal portion of the trust or estate assets and enables one or more of the beneficiaries to receive the home as their portion of the distribution.

Additionally, Prop 58 defines a child as child born of the parent(s), a stepchild while the relationship of stepparent and stepchild exists, a son-in-law or daughter-in-law of the parent(s), and any adopted child who was adopted before the age of 18. Spouses of eligible children are also eligible until divorce or, if terminated by death, until the remarriage of the surviving spouse, stepparent, or parent-in-law. Information found at https://trustandestate.loans

California Proposition 193

California Proposition 193 grants the same rights to a grandchild as Proposition 58 grants to a child. An eligible “grandchild” for purposes of Proposition 193 is any child of parent(s) who qualify as child(ren) of the grandparents as of the date of transfer.

There are some additional requirements and exclusions for Proposition 58 and Proposition 193. Please call us at 877-464-1066 so that we can assist you.

Proposition 58 Exclusion From Property Tax Reassessment

In 1986 California enacted Proposition 58. Proposition 58 allows for an inheriting property owner to avoid a property tax reassessment when acquiring real estate from their parents. The inheriting owner’s property taxes are calculated on the established Proposition 13 factored value, instead of the current market value, saving them potentially thousands of dollars annually. This is especially important if one of the children inheriting the property wants to either keep the home as a residence or as an investment property. If the parent has owned the home for an extended period of time, there is a high probability that Prop 13 has kept their property tax rate much lower than it would be if the property was reassessed at current market value.

Under Proposition 58, retaining a parents low property tax rate can become complicated when there is not enough liquid assets in the trust or estate to create an equal distribution to all siblings. In this situation a third party loan placed against the inherited home may be the only option to make an equal distribution. The additional cash made available from our 3rd party loan allows each of the siblings to receive an equal share of the assets. If the third party loan is not handled properly, the County Assessors Office may reject your request for a Proposition 58 exclusion from property tax reassessment and the property taxes will be calculated on the homes current assessed value. If you, one of your siblings or a client of yours is in need of a third party loan to take advantage of California Proposition 58’s exclusion from property tax reassessment, call Us at 877-464-1066.  We specialize in providing private money loans to trusts and estates and can assist you.

Proposition 13

Proposition 13 was passed by California voters on June 6, 1978. Property values were escalating in the 1970’s due to inflation. Property taxes were going through the roof because people were re-assessed annually at current market values. Proposition 13 froze property tax rates at 1976 levels and limited the increase in tax rates to 2% per year. Once a property was sold, the new tax rate was established at approximately 1% of the sales price and could go up no more than 2% per year.

Proposition 58 (and 193)

Proposition 58 became effective on November 6, 1986. It is a constitutional amendment approved by California voters which excludes from reassessment transfers of real property between parents and children.

Proposition 193 became effective on March 27, 1986. It is a constitutional amendment approved by California voters which excludes from reassessment transfers of real property from grandparents to grandchildren, providing that all the parents of the grandchildren who qualify as children of grandparents are deceased as of the date of transfer.

Why is this important?

Prop 58 and Prop 193 allows a child receiving a property from a parent (or grandparent) to avoid property tax reassessment. The child receiving the property will preserve the Prop 13 tax rate paid by their parents (or grandparents). The property tax savings for the child receiving the transfer of real property can be significant. Let’s say Mom and Dad has owned the family house for 20 years. If the parents bought the property for $200,000, their property taxes would probably be $2,900. That property could be worth $700,000 today. The property taxes would probably be $7,000. The difference is $4,100 per year.

What if the property being transferred is in a trust?

It doesn’t really matter that a property is in a trust. The transfer from a parent to a child will be viewed that same as a property not in a trust. The tricky part is when both parents have passed and there is more than one child (beneficiary). If the trust has assets other than the real property being transferred and those assets can be split among the other beneficiaries so that everyone gets an equal share; the child (beneficiary) taking the real property can probably qualify for the parent-child transfer exclusion afforded by proposition 58.

In the event that there are not enough other assets in the trust to equally divide the trust assets among the beneficiaries, the trust will need to borrow money so that there are enough assets to distribute equally to all the beneficiaries. This is called a 3rd party trust loan. This is where Commercial Loan Corporation comes in. CLC is a California Trust Loan provider and CLC loans help preserve a low property tax rate when taking a property out of a trust.

Even though the child beneficiary taking the real property may have enough cash to lend to the trust so an even distribution can be accomplished, it is viewed as a buyout of the other beneficiaries and the real property will probably be assessed at the current sale price. The trust is required to borrow from a 3rd party in this situation.

Pro Rata Distribution versus Non Pro Rata Distribution

A pro rata distribution of an estate is when each heir receives an equal portion of each asset in the estate. A non pro rata distribution of an estate is when each heir receives an equal proportion of the entire estate but not necessarily of each asset.

$1 million exclusion limit

There is no limit on the transfer of a personal residence.

There is a $1 million dollar limit for all other real property. This is based on the assessor’s value of the other properties as opposed to current market value. A parent may have used part of this exclusion in the past. The State Board of Equalization keeps track in a state-wide database. This can be checked by writing to:
