PROPOSITION 19- TRANSFER OF PROPERTY / INHERITANCE OF PROPERTY

In November 2020, California voters passed Proposition 19, which makes changes to property tax benefits for families, seniors, severely disabled persons, and victims of natural disaster. These changes will become effective in February and April 2021, depending on the component of the measure.

“The implementation dates for Proposition 19 are fast approaching and my Office is working hard to inform the public about the changes that will occur. While there is still uncertainty about many components of the measure, this informational brochure will try and answer some of the basic elements of Proposition 19.”
