220.0000 CHANGE IN OWNERSHIP

Annotation 220.0370

220.0370 Life Estate. A person may disclaim a gift of a life estate created in a will if he or she files the appropriate document as required by Probate Code section 282 et seq. The failure to timely file a disclaimer results in a change in ownership as of the date of the decedent's death.

If the decedent were the parent of the owner of the remainder interest, the parent/child exclusion would apply to the transfer of that interest since it is received from the decedent, not the holder of the life estate. C 5/23/1989.
