200.0000 BASE YEAR VALUE TRANSFER
(a) BASE YEAR VALUE TRANSFER – PRINCIPAL RESIDENCE
200.0088 Purchase. Since Revenue and Taxation Code section 63 provides that change in ownership does not include transfers between spouses, the transfer of a base year value from one property to another is not available to a person who obtains the "replacement property" or an interest in such a property from a spouse. Revenue and Taxation Code section 69.5 limits the transfer of value to replacement dwellings that are purchased, which pursuant to section 63 does not include transfers between spouses.
