220.0000 CHANGE IN OWNERSHIP
220.0295 Joint Tenancy. A joint tenancy creates undivided interests in property, with each joint tenant owning a fractional or percentage interest. The creation, termination, or transfer of such an interest is a change in ownership and results in a reappraisal only of that interest, except that (1) the creation or transfer of a joint tenancy interest is not a change in ownership where the transferor remains as a joint tenant after the transfer; (2) the termination of an "original transferor's interest" by operation of law (upon death) is not a change in ownership where the interest is transferred to the remaining original transferor(s); and (3) the termination of an interest of one other than an original transferor is not a change in ownership where the interest is transferred to an original transferor or to all remaining joint tenants.
