220.0000 CHANGE IN OWNERSHIP

Annotation 220.0268

220.0268 Interspousal Transfer. A transfer of a joint tenancy interest in real property to a spouse or former spouse in connection with a property settlement agreement or decree of dissolution of marriage is excluded from change in ownership under Revenue and Taxation Code section 63. A mother conveyed property to herself, her daughter, and her son-in-law as joint tenants. The mother became an "original transferor" and the daughter and the son-in-law became "other than original transferors." Subsequently, the daughter and the son-in-law divorced and the son-in-law deeded his interest in the property to his wife (the daughter) in connection with a property settlement agreement or decree of dissolution of marriage. The termination of a joint tenancy interest is a change in ownership as to the one-third interest transferred, however, the interspousal exclusion applies. C 2/21/2007.
