Had a great discussion yesterday with County of Sonoma Clerk, Recorder, Tax Assessor and Elections Chief, Bill Rousseau. Click to hear the podcast! We had a far ranging discussion on keeping your property 13 status when rebuilding your destroyed home and repairing damage. Also, discussed: Propositions 60/90 and how you can move your low Proposition 13 tax base with you if moving. One of the emergency ordinances is found under Revenue and Taxation code 69.3. This allows larger parameters in a homes value if taking your old prop 13 tax base with you–up to 120% of the old value. Also, the number of counties allowing transfer of the old prop 13 base have been changed. Below are those counties:
Contra Costa, Modoc, San Francisco, Solano, Sutter, Los Angles, Orange, Santa Clara, Sonoma, Ventura.
