Claim for Reassessment Exclusion - Transfer from Grandparent to Grandchild

General Information

For transfers occurring on or before February 15, 2021, please file claim form BOE-58-G, Claim for Reassessment Exclusion for Transfer from Grandparent to Grandchild.

For transfers occurring on or after February 16, 2021, section 2.1(c) of article XIII A of the California Constitution provides that the terms “purchase” or “change in ownership” do not include the purchase or transfer of a family home between grandparents and their grandchildren, as long as the property was the family home of the transferor and continues as the family home of the transferee. A family home also includes a family farm.

To qualify for this exclusion, all parents of the grandchild, who qualify as children of the grandparents, must be deceased as of the date of the grandparent-grandchild transfer. A stepparent does not need to be deceased.

For a family home, the transferee is required to file for the homeowners’ or disabled veterans’ exemption within one year of the date of transfer.

If the assessed value of the family home on the date of transfer exceeds the sum of the factored base year value plus $1 million, the amount in excess of this sum will be added to the factored base year value.

This claim form is for transfers occurring on or after February 16, 2021.

NOTE: A county board of supervisors may authorize one-time processing fee of not more than $175 to recover costs incurred by the county assessor due to the failure of an eligible transferee to file a claim for the grandparent-grandchild change in ownership exclusion after two written requests have been sent to an eligible transferee by the county assessor.
