The California Constitution generally limits ad valorem taxes on real property to 1% of the full cash value of that property. For purposes of this limitation, "full cash value" is defined as the assessor's valuation of real property as shown on the 1975â€“76 tax bill under "full cash value" or, thereafter, the appraised value of that real property when purchased, newly constructed, or a change in ownership has occurred. Existing property tax law specifies those circumstances in which the transfer of ownership interests results in a change in ownership of the real property, and provides that certain transfers do not result in a change of ownership. This bill would provide that a transfer of a floating home marina, as defined, to a nonprofit corporation, stock cooperative corporation, limited equity stock cooperative, or other entity formed by the tenants of a floating home marina for the purpose of purchasing the floating home marina does not constitute a change in ownership, provided that a specified condition is met. This bill would also provide that, if the transfer of a floating home marina has been excluded from a change in ownership and the floating home marina has not been converted, as specified, any transfer of shares of the voting stock of, or other ownership or membership interests in, the entity that acquired the floating home marina shall be a change in ownership of a pro rata portion of the real property, as defined, of the floating home marina. This bill would require a floating home marina that does not utilize recorded deeds to transfer ownership interest in the berths to file a report with the county assessor's office, as specified. This bill would require the new resident owner or other purchaser or transferee of a floating home within a floating home marina that does not utilize recorded deeds to transfer ownership interest in the berths to file a specified change in ownership statement, which is required to be filed under penalty of perjury, within 30 days of a change in ownership. By imposing new duties upon local officials with respect to changes in ownership of floating home marinas, and by expanding the crime of perjury, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program. The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement. This bill would provide that with regard to certain mandates no reimbursement is required by this act for a specified reason. With regard to any other mandates, this bill would provide that, if the Commission on State Mandates determines that the bill contains costs so mandated by the state, reimbursement for those costs shall be made pursuant to the statutory provisions noted above. Section 2229 of the Revenue and Taxation Code requires the Legislature to reimburse local agencies annually for certain property tax revenues lost as a result of any exemption or classification of property for purposes of ad valorem property taxation. This bill would provide that, notwithstanding Section 2229 of the Revenue and Taxation Code, no appropriation is made and the state shall not reimburse local agencies for property tax revenues lost by them pursuant to the bill. This bill would take effect immediately as a tax levy.
