Starting February 16, 2021, the California property tax parent-child exclusion will become heavily restricted. Currently, parents may transfer their primary residence to a child without facing property tax reassessment and shelter up to $1,000,000 in appreciation of real property that is not a primary residence. Under Proposition 19, a child can only avoid a property tax reassessment if the child uses the transferred property as their primary residence. Additionally, under the new law, the parent-child exclusion is capped at $1,000,000 – meaning, even if a parent transfers property to their child and the child uses the property as their primary residence, any appreciation in excess of $1,000,000 will trigger a property reassessment for that excess value.
