Propositions 60 and 90

Question: Am I eligible to transfer my Tax base?
Answer: Yes, if you fit the requirements below

Propositions 60 and 90
In most cases, these constitutional tax
initiatives allow senior citizens to transfer
the trended base value from their
current home to a replacement property
if certain requirements are met.
This may result in substantial tax savings.

Who Qualifies?
If you or your spouse who resides with you is age 55 or
older, you may buy or construct a new home of equal
or lesser value than your existing home and transfer
the trended base value to your new property.
This is a one-time only benefit. You must buy or complete
construction of your replacement home within two
years of the sale of the original property.

Both the original home and the new home must be your principalplace of residence. A claim must be filed within three years of purchasing or completing new construction
of the replacement property. If a claim is filed
after the three-year period, relief will be granted
beginning with the calendar year in which the claim
was filed.

Once you have filed and received this tax relief, neither
you nor your spouse who resides with you can ever file
again. Source: Los Angeles County Assessors Office.
