Property Tax Annotations
220.0000 CHANGE IN OWNERSHIP
220.0206 Exclusions. Transfers by a governmental agency to its wholly owned public facilities corporation result in changes in the manner of holding title and not changes in ownership for reappraisal purposes. Since, however, the corporation is a separate entity, its property, whether a possessory interest or a fee interest, is not exempt under section 3(b) of article XIII of the California Constitution.
Should the public facilities corporation lease or lease-back property to a tax exempt public entity, the property would remain subject to tax unless the use to which it is put e.g., exclusive use for public school purposes, provides a basis for exemption or the exemption requirements of Revenue and Taxation Code section 231 are satisfied. C 4/20/1993.
