Avoid Property Tax Reassessment On An Inherited Home

Avoid Property Tax Reassessment With California Proposition 58

Avoid Property Tax Reassessment On A Home Your Inherit From Your Parents

How to avoid property tax reassessment on a home you inherit from your mother or father in California

One of the biggest mistakes that most Californians make when inheriting real estate from a parent is not taking advantage of California Prop 58. In fact even some Estate Planners, Attorneys and Fiduciaries do not fully understand the full benefits and how to navigate Proposition 58. California Proposition 58 provides Californians with the ability to avoid property reassessment when inheriting a home from a parent.

Why is Proposition 58 and the ability to avoid property tax reassessment so important?

Avoiding property reassessment means you assume the existing property tax valuation that your parent had. With how rapidly property values have appreciated in California over the last 50 years, avoiding reassessment can mean an enormous tax savings. For instance, lets say that your parents purchased their home in 1980 for $180,000. Because of California Proposition 13, the county can not reassess a home more than 2% per year while held by the same owner. For this example we will estimate the county has the home you are inheriting assessed at $250,000. If the County property tax rate is 1.2%, that means the yearly property taxes on the home are just $3,000.

If you inherit the property from your parents, and you or your legal representation do not submit a request for an exclusion from reassessment and the home is currently valued at $1,250,000, your annual property taxes will jump to $15,000! That is a difference of $13,000 per year in property taxes that you could potentially be avoided. To compound the issue, property assessment values can be reassessed upwards by 2% annually. So the following year if that occurs, your property taxes will increase by another $300 as opposed to just $60 if you had received your exclusion from reassessment. Over 10 years that can really add up.

How can Commercial Loan Corporation help with Proposition 58 and an exclusion from Property Tax Reassessment?

California Proposition 58  has eligibility requirements. A process needs to be done correctly and proper documentation needs to be filed in order to receive and exclusion from property reassessment on a parent to child transfer of real estate. One of the stipulations is that when a parents home is held in a trust, an equal distribution of the trust assets must be made to qualify for Proposition 58. An important side note is that the beneficiary receiving the property can not use their own funds to create an equal distribution. If this is done, the assessors office views it as a property transfer between beneficiaries as opposed to a parent to child transfer, making it ineligible for a Proposition 58 exclusion from reassessment. Instead, the California Board of Equalization requires that a third party loan be used to provide the trust with sufficient cash for an equal distribution to be made. This information can be found on the California Board of Equalizations website at the following link that addresses questions and answers regarding California Proposition 58.

California Board of Equalization Website Information on Prop 58: BOE website document link

“When a trustee or estate administrator has the power to distribute trust assets on a pro rata or non-pro rata basis, the distribution of real property to one child  qualifies for the parent-child exclusion if the value of the property does not exceed that child’s interest in the total trust estate. A trustee who elects to make a non-pro rata distribution may equalize the value of the other beneficiaries’ interests in the trust assets by encumbering the real property with a loan and distributing the loan proceeds to the other beneficiaries. However, a loan cannot be made by any of the beneficiaries of the real property to the trust in order to equalize the trust interests. Such loan would be considered payment for the other beneficiaries’ interests in the real property resulting in a transfer between beneficiaries rather than a transfer from parent to child, which would disqualify the transfer from the parent-child exclusion.”

Commercial Loan Corporation is one of the only lenders in California that provides loans to trusts with out the requirement of a personal guarantee. This unique mortgage product allows an illiquid trust to become liquid and for the inheriting beneficiary to qualify for the benefits of Proposition 58 by meeting the parent to child transfer requirement. Unlike other lenders, we specialize in Proposition 58 loans. Our trust loan enables a beneficiary to encumber the inherited home and infuse the trust with the cash needed so that an equal distribution can be made and they can qualify for the parent-child exclusion and avoid a property tax reassessment with Proposition 58.

California Trust And Estate Attorneys

When setting up a trust or dealing with trust and estate matters, finding a qualified Trust & Estate Attorney is highly advised! You can save money attempting to handle some items yourself, but be warned that making mistakes can sometimes end up being very costly.

This is especially true if you are inheriting a home from a parent and it is your goal, or a siblings goal to use Proposition 58 to keep a parents low property tax base. In many cases a trust or estate contains a variety of assets including cash and material items in addition to real estate. When there are multiple beneficiaries involved, and one of the beneficiaries wants to keep the home, the distribution can be complicated. If not handled correctly, you may lose your ability to receive an Exclusion From Property Reassessment. This can cause the homes value to be reassessed when transferred and in turn the property taxes may skyrocket.

Commercial Loan Corporation provides financing to Trusts and Estates to help you receive an exclusion from property reassessment. By doing so, we save our clients on average over $6,000 a year in property taxes. We are constantly working with qualified Attorneys and Property Tax Consultants in California to help their clients with Proposition 58 property transfers. If you are in need of financing to assist a trust or estate, or are looking for a Trust & Estate Attorney in your area to assist you, please call us at 877-464-1066. We would be happy to refer you to a California Trust & Estate Attorney that we have worked with in the past and who is knowledgeable on Proposition 58 and the parent to child property tax transfer process.

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.

“I am a California licensed Professional Fiduciary and needed a hard money loan for one of my clients. My client had been turned down for a Second TD by two conventional lenders before I received a cute ad mailer from Commercial Loan Corporation. From my first phone call to Commercial Loan Corporation (when the owner actually answered the phone!), to my last call with Autumn after the loan had been funded, I enjoyed every moment of this loan process. (How many lenders can you honestly say that about?) I look forward to our next loan together and would not hesitate to recommend Commercial Loan Corporation to anyone needing short term funds. You will be treated professionally and with kindness every step of the way.”
