620.0000 OPEN-SPACE LANDS
620.0005 Change in Ownership. When open space property under a Williamson Act contract undergoes a change in ownership, the assessor must process the change in ownership and establish the base year value for the property as of the date of change in ownership. The new base year value of the restricted property is not enrolled, and therefore, no supplemental assessments are issued. However, as to the non-restricted portions of the property (e.g., structures, nonliving improvements), the new base year value is enrolled and supplemental assessments are levied based upon the date of the change in ownership.
