Orange County Estate Planning Event

Orange County Estate Planning Council Event

Commercial Loan Corporation is the featured sponsor for tonight’s Orange County Estate Planning Council Event. Mike Riggs and Tanis Alonso will be on hand to answer finance related questions pertaining to California Proposition 58, Parent to Child Real Estate Transfers, Trust Loans, and avoiding property tax reassessment on an inherited property.  Tonight’s Estate Planning council is focusing on INGs and Spousal Lifetime Access Non-Grantor Trusts (SLANTs) PLUS IRC 678 and the Beneficiary Deemed Owner Trust. The event will be from 4:30pm – 8:00pm at the Santa Ana Country Club in Santa Ana, Ca. Tonight’s Orange County Estate Planning Council speaker is Edwin Morrow from US Bank Private Wealth Management.

The presentation will be focusing on INGs and Spousal Lifetime Access Non-Grantor Trusts (SLANTs) – Not Just for State Income Tax Avoidance: How “INGs” and “SLANTs” Can Save State Income Taxes and Why Tax Reform Makes Them Even More Powerful. This segment of the presentation will be from 4:30 to 5:30 PM . IRC 678 and the Beneficiary Deemed Owner Trust will be presented from 7PM to 8 PM focusing on income tax benefits of such trusts include much simpler tax reporting, lower tax brackets, capital gains tax exclusions for residences, much more favorable Section 179 expensing, disregarded transactions, firmer S corporation status, charitable deductions for business income, more favorable life insurance and annuity rules, better treatment for capital losses, and many more benefits often overlooked. Asset protection for such trusts, while seemingly substandard, is hardly a disaster. Any ill effects of a withdrawal power can not only be counteracted but even turned into an advantage over other trust designs. A 50-state comparison chart will be included which summarizes the various state asset protection statutes and law around powers of withdrawal and lapses. 
Both of these presentations qualify for 1-hour of CE for MCLE, CPA, Professional Fiduciary and Trust Officers.

We Make Loans To Irrevocable Trusts Easy

California Lender for Loans to Irrevocable Trusts - The Cash You Need To Distribute A Trust

Commercial Loan Corporation is a California Lender specializing in Loans to Irrevocable Trusts. We lend the cash you need to distribute a trust and receive your proposition 58 exclusion from property tax reassessment on an inherited home.

Loans to Irrevocable Trusts in California

When it comes time to distribute an irrevocable trust and funds are needed to make an equal distribution, you will find that most lenders are unwilling to lend on real estate that is held in a trust. This becomes extremely problematic if you plan on filing for a California Proposition 58 exclusion from property tax reassessment on real estate being inherited from a parent.

One of the requirements to qualify for an exclusion from property reassessment is for the trust to make an equal distribution of the trust assets to all child beneficiaries. Often times that is not possible to do if one of the trust assets is an expensive piece of California real estate. In the situation where a home is creating an unequal trust distribution, a mortgage or third party loan must be taken out to infuse the trust with enough cash so that the equal distribution can be made. That way one child receives the encumbered property while others receive cash and or other assets, equalizing the distribution of the trust. The state does not allow for the acquiring beneficiary to use their own funds to equalize the distribution. Doing so would create a sibling to sibling buyout and make the beneficiary ineligible for an exclusion from reassessment. That is why a third party loan is required. The problem is that most California lenders will require that the property be removed from the trust in order to lend on the home. Unfortunately, once that is done, you have jeopardized your ability to qualify for the Prop 58 property tax reassessment exclusion since the assets of the trust were distributed unevenly at that point.

The solution is to have a mortgage placed on the home while the property is still held in the irrevocable trust. That is where Commercial Loan Corporation comes in. We are a leading California lender of mortgages for homes held in an irrevocable trust. What makes us unique is that we lend to the trust as opposed to a beneficiary; allowing the beneficiary to qualify for the California Proposition 58 exclusion from property tax reassessment on a home inherited from a parent.

If you, a client, or someone that you know is in need of a loan to a trust, please have them call us at 877-464-1066. We specialize in the process and can answer any questions that they may have. We can also provide them with a free loan benefit proposal. The proposal compares the cost of the trust loan to the benefits received from a Prop 58 parent to child property transfer, ensuring that the trust loan is beneficial.  We can also determine how much additional funds you would receive by maximizing your trust distribution. On average we help clients distribute an additional $42,000 to beneficiaries my maximizing their trust distribution.

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.

KEEP A LOW PROPERTY TAX RATE ON AN INHERITED HOME

When inheriting a home from a parent or grandparent, California Proposition 58 may allow you to avoid a property tax reassessment. Taking advantage of this Proposition 58 provision can save you thousands of dollars each year in property taxes.  In fact, our average client saves over $6,000 a year in property taxes.

In order to avoid a property tax reassessment, certain procedures must be followed and documents must be properly submitted to the county tax assessors office. The process can be complicated. This is especially true when the property is held in a trust or when multiple siblings are inheriting property, money or other assets from a parent. An even distribution of assets is required to qualify and a beneficiary can not contribute their own funds to make an equal distribution. This is where Commercial Loan Corporation can help.  We are one of just a few California lenders who provide loans that will not jeopardize a Proposition 58 approval. We are able to lend directly to a trust and do not require a personal guarantee.

Commercial Loan Corporation has a track record of success. We work with a California Property Tax Consultant who has over 15 years of experience working in the California Tax Assessors office. With his assistance we can help you solve even the most challenging cases and help you avoid a property tax reassessment.
