625.0000 PARENT-CHILD TRANSFER
625.0196 Step Transaction. The step transaction doctrine is applied when a series of transfers are made merely to avoid reappraisal. However, the step transaction doctrine does not apply to multiple transfers of real property and legal entity interests between parents and children consistent with the legislative intent, expressed in the uncodified note in the bill that enacted Revenue and Taxation Code section 63.1 (section 2 of Chapter 48, Statutes of 1987), that its provisions be liberally construed. C 12/8/2005.
