Change In Ownership Reassessment Exclusions:
The Assessor is required to assess property at its current market value when a change in ownership occurs, which usually results in an increase in property taxes. There are, however, some changes in ownership that are specifically excluded from reassessment such as transfers:
- For refinancing purposes
- Between spouses or former spouses
- Between registered domestic partners
- Cotenancy transfers under specific circumstances
- Between parents and children
- Between grandparents and grandchildren
- Between individuals and a legal entity that results solely in a change in the method of holding title.
