200.0000 BASE YEAR VALUE TRANSFER
(b) BASE YEAR VALUE TRANSFER – GOVERNMENT ACQUISITION
200.0368 Sale and Leaseback. Property Tax Rule 462.500(g)(2) provides that a request to transfer the base year value of a property acquired by a public entity to a replacement property shall be timely if it is made within four years of the date of conveyance or the date the taxpayer vacates the replaced property, whichever is later. The fact that the taken property was leased back to the former owners does not preclude the replacement property from qualifying. Remaining in possession of the property under the lease simply delays the onset of the four-year period within which the request to transfer the base year value to the replacement property must be made.
