CEB, Real Property Law Reporter, Vol. 13, No. 8 (November 1990) PUBLISHED APPELLATE OPINIONS: SHC Half Moon Bay v. County of San Mateo (2014) 226 Cal.App.4th 471. California assessors have long embraced the so-called Rushmore Method to (supposedly) remove intangible assets from assessment. The popularity of this purported method among assessors arises from the fact that it provides the appearance of removing intangible assets from assessment while not in fact actually reducing assessed values. The California Court of Appeal has held that the Rushmore Method violates California law because it fails to actually attribute a portion of [the hotel s] income stream to the enterprise activity that was directly attributable to the value of intangible assets and deduct that value prior to assessment. EHP Glendale, LLC v. County of Los Angeles (2013) 219 Cal.App.4th 1015; depublished December 18, 2013 ( EHP II ). The Court of Appeal acknowledged that the purchase price of an operating hotel included intangible assets. The Assessor enrolled an amount equal to the purchase price based on an income Page 4 of 13 January 2015

5 approach. The Assessor contended that deducting operating expenses from the revenue stream adequately accounted for (removed) the value of the intangible assets required to generate the capitalized revenue. The Assessor maintained this position, and the Court of Appeal sustained the Assessor s position, notwithstanding that the California courts had expressly directed that merely removing expenses from a cash flow does not remove the value of intangible assets. The opinion, upon application of EHP Glendale, LLC and others, was depublished by the California Supreme Court. Western States Petroleum Assn. v. State Bd. of Equalization Western States Petroleum Assn. v. Board of Equalization (2013) 57 Cal.4th 401. The California Assessor s Association lobbied the SBE to adopt a new regulation, Rule 474, which required fixtures and land to be assessed as a single appraisal unit, thereby allowing land appreciation to offset fixture depreciation. This new Rule was generally seen as an effort to pioneer a new interpretation of Section 51 and Rule 461 as a test case in the petroleum refining context that could be expanded to all heavily fixturized businesses if approved by the courts. The Supreme Court invalidated Rule 474 on grounds that the SBE violated the Administrative Procedures Act by failing to ascertain and disclose the amount of additional tax that would result from the change in the taxing methodology required by the new Rule. The Supreme Court also departed from 30 years of consistent practice and law to hold that the SBE had the power to combine the fixtures and land into a single appraisal unit in appropriate circumstances, even when doing so would result in a tax increase. Dreyer s Grand Ice Cream, Inc. v. County of Kern (2013) 218 Cal.App. 4th 828. Dreyer s Bakersfield ice cream manufacturing facility was materially underutilized. All parties agreed that Dreyer s was making as much ice cream as it could sell, i.e., that market demand established the degree to which Dreyer s manufacturing capacity was utilized. The Kern County Assessment Appeals Board denied Dreyer s any reduction in assessed value based on an inutility adjustment to the cost approach on grounds that it had failed to prove that the excess capacity was due to external causes beyond the control of the taxpayer. The Court of Appeal affirmed, characterizing the production data and the testimony of the plant s financial manager as mere lay opinion that could be ignored by the Assessment Appeals Board. The Court of Appeal did not address the fact that the Assessor s expert agreed with Dreyer s testimony. Neither did the Court of Appeal address provisions of the SBE s Guidelines for Substantiating Additional Obsolescence for Personal Property and Fixtures (LTA No. 2010/30 dated June 10, 2010). Page 5 of 13 January 2015

6 EHP Glendale v. County of Los Angeles (2011) 193 Cal.App.4th 262 ( EHP I ). Summary judgment granted for taxpayer reversed on procedural grounds. The Court of Appeal created a new requirement that summary judgment cannot be granted without review of the entire administrative record, even when the pertinent evidence is undisputed. Fashion Valley Mall LLC v. County of San Diego (2009) 176 Cal.App.4th 871. Buyer utilizing out-of-state counsel purchased a 50% interest in the property, but the transaction was inadvertently structured so that a 100% change in ownership for property was triggered for property tax purposes. Taxpayer rescinded and restructured the transaction to align the property tax consequences with proportion of beneficial ownership that was actually produced. Rescission followed review and approval of the restructured transaction by the State Board of Equalization. The rescission was limited to property tax purposes at demand of Seller s counsel. Court of Appeal held that the limited scope of the rescission rendered it ineffective. Independent Energy Producers Association v. State Board of Equalization (2004) 125 Cal.App.4th 425. The California State Board of Equalization s assessment jurisdiction over companies generating and selling electricity is restricted to public utilities meeting the test for dedication to a public use for purpose of Article XIII, Section 19 of the California Constitution. The Court of Appeal held that independent electric generators met this test merely because they sold electricity into the competitive public marketplace. Also, the Legislature could redefine the concept of public utilities by a mere majority vote because the tax rate for electric generating facilities did not change. Jopson, et al. v. Feather River Air Quality Management District (2003) 108 Cal.App.4th 492. An air quality management district s miscalculation of emission reduction credits was an immune misrepresentation by an employee of the public entity. Watson Cogeneration Company v. County of Los Angeles (2002) 98 Cal.App.4th 1066 (for Amicus Curiae Independent Energy Producers Association). A cogeneration facility built before deregulation should be assessed on the basis of the revenue stream generated pursuant to the power sale agreement in place instead of market power prices. The subject standard offer contract was not an intangible, the value of which should be excluded from the assessment, because power generation projects such as those at issue were the result of government incentives intended to encourage their development. Page 6 of 13 January 2015

7 Exxon Mobil Corporation v. County of Santa Barbara (2001) 92 Cal.App.4th An offshore oil and gas leasehold and onshore treating facility constituted an integrated appraisal unit. The assessment of the onshore facility as a stand alone facility using the cost approach without regard to the economic obsolescence created by declining oil prices was unfair. The trial court was not restricted to the administrative record on review and properly received additional evidence concerning the SBE s interpretation of its Rule 468. Montgomery Ward v. County of Santa Clara (1996) 47 Cal.App.4th An assessor may revise base-year values and levy escape assessments regardless of when the underassessment is discovered unless the assessor has exercised his judgment as to the value of the property. Merely rolling the base-year value forward after the change of ownership does not constitute an exercise of valuation judgment. Phillips Petroleum Corp. v. County of Lake (1993) 15 Cal.App.4th 180. The base-year value of proved geothermal reserves should be established when such reserves change ownership by analogy to SBE Rule 468 (Oil and Gas Producing Properties). The Assessor s mere misunderstanding of the law does not support recovery of attorneys fees.
