Tax Benefits for Senior Citizen Homeowners

Senior Citizen’s Replacement Dwelling Benefit

In most cases, these constitutional tax initiatives allow senior citizens to transfer the trended base value from their current home to a replacement property if certain requirements are met. This may result in substantial tax savings.

Prop 60 & 90 Form

Homeowner Tax Exemption Form

Counties Currently Accepting Prop 90

Who Qualifies?

  1. The replacement property must be your principal residence and must be eligible for the Homeowners’ Exemption or Disabled Veterans’ Exemption.
  2. 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 residence, even if the owner of the original property acquires only a partial interest in the replacement residence. Owners of two qualifying original residences may not combine the values of those properties in order to qualify for a Proposition 60 base-year transfer to a replacement residence of greater value than the more valuable of the two original residences.
  3. The replacement property must be purchased or built within two years (before or after) of the sale of the original property.
  4. Your original property must have been eligible for the Homeowners’ or Disabled Veterans’ Exemption.
  5. You, or a spouse residing with you, must have been at least 55 years of age when the original property was sold.
