220.0000 CHANGE IN OWNERSHIP
220.0085 Corporate Property Transfers. If a corporation transfers properties to its shareholders as tenants in common, so that each shareholder receives an interest in each property equivalent to his/her previous interest in the corporation, a change of ownership does not occur. However, if some of the shareholders subsequently transfer their ownership interests in a property or properties to their fellow shareholders, the assessor should regard the original transfer(s) as a change(s) in ownership and assess 100 percent of the property or properties that was or were the subject of the second transfer(s). Substance, not form, determines change in ownership questions. C 9/25/1985.
