200.0000 BASE YEAR VALUE TRANSFER
(b) BASE YEAR VALUE TRANSFER – GOVERNMENT ACQUISITION
200.0316 Claim. A failure to file a timely claim for transfer of value from a property taken by governmental action to a replacement property prevents transfer of the assessed value of the replaced property and the refund of any difference in taxes paid on the replacement property. The time limitation of Revenue and Taxation Code section 68 is not a statute of limitation within which a right must be enforced and cannot be waived. The limitation is one that if not met prevents the right of transfer from arising. Without a right, no tax overpayment occurs and no refund is possible. C 12/22/1988.
