220.0000 CHANGE IN OWNERSHIP
220.0553 Possessory Interests. The exclusion from change in ownership under Revenue and Taxation Code section 62(a)(2) is applicable to assignments of possessory interests. The plain language of this section excludes all qualifying proportional interest transfers and does not make a distinction between transfers of fee title interests and leasehold interests. As defined in Revenue and Taxation Code section 61(b)(3), an assignment of a taxable possessory interest is a transfer of all rights in the possessory interest and results in a change in ownership. Consequently, the exclusion set forth in section 62(a)(2) can be and is applicable to an assignment of a taxable possessory interest provided that all the conditions of that subdivision are met.
