Property Tax Annotations
500.0000 HISTORICAL PROPERTY
500.0040 Supplemental Assessments. Revenue and Taxation Code section 50 requires county assessors to establish new base year values for enforceably restricted historical property upon a change in ownership. However, the establishment of those new base year values merely enables the assessor to perform the three-way value comparison prescribed by Revenue and Taxation Code section 439.2(d) and to calculate the assessed values of historical property should the Mills Act contract enter nonrenewal status (section 439.3). Since the assessments of enforceably restricted historical properties are governed by article XIII, section 8 of the California Constitution, Revenue and Taxation Code section 75.14 precludes assessors from enrolling supplemental assessments for enforceably restricted historical properties upon a change in ownership.
