220.0000 CHANGE IN OWNERSHIP
220.0821 Trusts—Sprinkle/Spray Provisions. A transfer of real property to an irrevocable trust results in a change in ownership when, under the terms of the trust, the trustee may exercise his or her discretion by distributing all of the trust income or principal to one or more unidentified beneficiaries for whom no change in ownership exclusion is available. Pursuant to Property Tax Rule 462.160(b)(1)(A), a transfer of real property to an irrevocable trust with a "sprinkle/spray" provision results in a change in ownership unless all of the persons included as beneficiaries under that provision qualify for an exclusion from change in ownership.
