What are the time filing requirements of Propositions 58 and 193? Many heirs ask this question. In order to take advantage of these constitutional initiatives which provide property tax relief for real property transfers between parents and children and from grandparents to grandchildren, some requirements exist. These initiatives make it easier to keep property in the family by keeping these properties excluded from reassessment.

Propositions 58 and 193 Deadlines

Propositions 58 and 193 require family members file their claim with the county assessor’s office by the earliest of the following:

  • Within three years of the transfer
  • Before transferring to a third party


  • Within 6 months after the mailing of the notice of supplemental or escape assessment, when it’s issued as a result of the transfer for which the claim is filed.

Keep in mind, if reassessment of your property occurs before the approval and processing of claim, and you filed in time, you can get the reassessment reversed. Then, a corrected tax bill will be processed. If you already paid, you’ll get a refund.

If you don’t meet the timing requirements, claims are subject to certain other conditions. For example, the claim will only apply to future tax years.
