The Santa Clara County Assessor's Office is holding a virtual workshop on Thursday, February 4, at 1:30 p.m. about the implementation of Proposition 19.
Proposition 19 was approved by California voters in November 2020. It changes state law in connection with how properties can be transferred from parents, and grandparents, to children without being reassessed. It also also expands benefits for seniors, disabled property owners, and victims of disasters to transfer their assessed value to another home in any California county.
“Many of the provisions of the Proposition 19 are confusing, ambiguous, and conflict with the initial intent,” said Assessor Larry Stone. “Proposition 19 was rushed through the Legislature in just six days at the end of the legislative session.”
During the workshop, the Assessor's Office will provide an update on new compliance forms, how Proposition 58/193 will be phased out, what major ambiguous issues have been resolved thus far, and how they may address vague provisions not resolved by the State Legislature.
