220.0000 CHANGE IN OWNERSHIP
220.0120 Corporate Voting Stock Proxies. The transfer of an irrevocable right to vote shares of stock owned by the transferor of the right is allowed only under circumstances described in Corporations Code section 705. When the transfer satisfies the Corporations Code requirements and involves more than 50 percent of the voting stock of the corporation, a change in control occurs and reappraisal of all corporate real property is in order.
Where the transferee of the proxy has only limited discretion when exercising the voting rights, those limitations must be examined to determine whether true control has actually transferred. Additionally, a transfer solely to secure a debt is excluded from change of ownership by Revenue and Taxation Code section 62(c)(1). C 2/20/1985.
