Current laws allow parents, grandparents and children to pass on the existing assessed values of their primary residence and other properties up to $1 million in assessed values without reassessment. Under Proposition 19 these programs will be limited with fewer tax savings opportunities. Click here for the chart developed by the State Board of Equalization to compare the current law and the effects of Proposition 19.

If you plan to record a deed before Proposition 19 becomes effective on February 16, 2021, please note that February 15, 2021 is President’s Day, a legal holiday, and all recorder offices are closed. We expect a high volume of document submissions leading up to the effective date of Prop 19. Any discrepancies or errors found may result in a rejection. The error must be corrected, resubmitted and accepted before the effective date. Early recording is highly recommended.
