What You Should Know About California Prop 19 and How It Can Help You

As a property owner in Richmond, CA you should be familiar with California Proposition 19, Property Tax Transfers, Exemptions, and Revenue for Wildfire Agencies and Counties Amendment. It allows homes to be sold and for certain individuals to take their tax breaks with them. The Proposition 19 (Transfer Your Tax Base When Selling Your Home) is a measure that went go into effect in early 2021, and has two very distinct parts; the first of which allows homeowners who are 55 or older, disabled, or lost their home in a natural disaster to transfer their tax base to a new home up to three times anywhere in California.

Previously, homeowners could only take advantage of a tax base transfer once in their lifetime, and only if they bought a replacement home in certain California counties. This was via Propositions 60 & 90, which have been superseded by Proposition 19.

Both buying and selling a home are multi-faceted processes with a lot to take into consideration.
