Frequently Asked Questions
If the full cash value of the replacement dwelling does not satisfy the "equal or lesser value" test, can I receive partial benefit?
No, unless the entire replacement dwelling satisfies the "equal or lesser value" test, no benefit is available. It is "all or nothing." Partial benefits are not granted.
What are the eligibility requirements for a transfer of base year value for a disabled person?
The eligibility requirements for a transfer of base year value for a disabled person are as follows:
- You, or a spouse residing with you, must be severely and permanently disabled on the date the original property is sold.
- The replacement property must be your principal place of residence and must be eligible for a Homeowners' Exemption or Disabled Veterans' Exemption.
- The replacement property must be of equal or lesser "current market value" than the original property. The "equal or lesser" test is applied to the entire replacement property, even if the owner of the original property purchases the replacement property with other people.
- The replacement property must be purchased or built within two years (before or after) the sale of the original property.
- To receive retroactive relief from the date of transfer, you must file your claim within three years following the purchase date or new construction of the replacement property.
- Your original property must have been eligible for the homeowners' or disabled veterans' exemption either at the time it was sold or within two years of the purchase or construction of the replacement property.
- The original property must be subject to reappraisal at its current fair market value at the time of sale, therefore most transfers between parents and children do not qualify.
What do I need to file for this exclusion?
In order to qualify, you must submit the Disabled Persons Claim for Transfer of Base Year Value to Replacement Dwelling (BOE form 62) and a Certificate of Disability (BOE form 62-A). The Certificate of Disability must be completed by the claimant and his or her physician.
