 Can I transfer my property tax base when I sell my home?     Many of my clients who sell their home move out of the area.  They frequently ask me if they can use their low Alameda County property tax base when they downsize in another area in California.  Some counties in California participate in the transfer of a seller’s property tax base when they sell their home and buy a replacement home of equal or lesser value.  Currently the following counties have ordinances allowing Props 60 and 90 property tax base transfers: Alameda,  Santa Clara, San Mateo, El Dorado,  Los Angeles,  San Diego,  Ventura,  Orange, San Bernadino, Toulumne and Riverside. The legislature may be considering that all counties in California participate in Prop 90 tax base transfer in the future. At the time of th...
