660.0000 POSSESSORY INTEREST
660.0098 Forest Service Land. The purported transfer of a possessory interest in United States Forest Service land by grant deed is ineffective when the possessory interest was created by a nontransferable government special use permit. Nevertheless, the grant deed is effective to transfer a recreational residence located on the land, to which any available exclusions may apply. When the transferee obtains a new special use permit from the United States Forest Service, however, a new taxable possessory interest in the land will be created for the benefit of the transferee, and that possessory interest will result in a change in ownership under Revenue and Taxation Code section 61(b). C 11/1/1996.
