6 Page number: 6 NOTICE OF SUPPLEMENTAL PROPERTY TAX BILL In accordance with Section (c) of the California Civil Code, it is the sole responsibility of the seller of any real property, or his or her agent, to deliver to the prospective purchaser a disclosure notice of the following: California property tax law requires the Assessor to revalue real property at the time the ownership of the property changes. Because of this law, you may receive one or two supplemental tax bills, depending on when your loan closes. The supplemental tax bills are not mailed to your lender. If you have arranged for your property tax payments to be paid through an impound account, the supplemental tax bills will not be paid by your lender. It is your responsibility to pay these supplemental bills directly to the Tax Collector. If you have any question concerning this matter, please call your local Tax Collector s Office. As stated above, California law requires that the Assessor re-appraise property upon a change of ownership or the completion of new construction. This re-appraisal results in a supplemental tax assessment which is based on the difference between the new value and the old value of the property, multiplied by the property s Ad Valorem tax rate. The resulting Supplemental Tax amount is then pro-rated, based upon the number of months remaining in the fiscal year in which the event occurred. The number of tax bills which will be issued also depends on the date the event occurred. If the change of ownership or new construction is completed between January 1 st and May 31 st, the result will be two supplemental assessments levied on two supplemental tax bills. If the event occurs between June 1 st and December 31 st, then only one supplemental bill will be issued. For a complete explanation and estimation of the supplemental tax bills affecting this parcel you can go to and order a complete Notice of Supplemental Tax Report.
7 Page number: 7 1. Private Transfer Fee SPECIAL ALERT New Mandatory Transfer Fee Disclosure Required 1/1/08 This is commonly known as a "Private Transfer Tax". It is a fee imposed by a private entity such as a property developer, home builder, or homeowner association, when a property within a certain type of subdivision is sold or transferred. A private transfer fee may also be imposed by an individual property owner. Private transfer fees are different from city or county Documentary Transfer Taxes. Private Transfer Fees may apply in addition to government Documentary Transfer Taxes that are due upon sale or transfer of the property. California Civil Code Section 1098 defines a "Transfer Fee" as "any fee payment requirement imposed within a covenant, restriction, or condition contained in any deed, contract, security instrument, or other document affecting the transfer or sale of, or any interest in, real property that requires a fee be paid upon transfer of the real property." Certain existing fees such as governmental fees, court ordered fees, mechanic lien fees, common interest development fees, etc. are specially excluded from the definition of "Transfer Fee" To determine if the property is subject to a Transfer Fee, OBTAIN COPIES OF ALL THE EXCEPTIONS LISTED ON THE PRELIMINARY (TITLE) REPORT FROM THE TITLE COMPANY AND READ THEM TO DETERMINE IF ANY TRANSFER FEES ARE APPLICABLE. Please be aware that private transfer fees may be difficult to identify by simply reading the title report. Effective January 1, 2008, Civil Code Section e requires the Seller to notify the Buyer of whether a private transfer fee applies and if present, to disclose certain specific information about the fee. Content of Disclosure. Civil Code Section e requires the Seller to disclose specific information about any Transfer Fee that may affect the property. Please refer to the legal code or to the C.A.R Form NTF (11/07), provided by the California Association of Realtors, for a standard format to use in making the Transfer Fee Disclosure if you elect to investigate and make this disclosure personally. How to Determine the Existence of a Transfer Fee. If a Transfer Fee does exist affecting the property, the document creating the fee may be on file with the County Recorder as a notice recorded against the property and should be disclosed in the preliminary (title) report on the property. However, the preliminary (title) report will merely disclose the existence of the documents affecting title, not the content of the documents. The title of a document may also not be sufficient to disclose that a transfer fee is included in its terms. Accordingly Seller should (a) request the title company which issued the preliminary (title) report to provide copies of the documents shown as "exceptions," and (b) review each document to determine if it contains a transfer fee. 2. Documentary Transfer Taxes This is a government tax imposed by a city or county when a property within the jurisdiction is sold or transferred.(it is commonly known as a "Real Estate Transfer Tax".) It is NOT the same as a private transfer fee, which may be imposed by a private entity such as a property developer, home builder, or homeowner association. However, it is a similar fee due upon closing, calculated based on a percentage of the purchase price.
8 Page number: 8 Transfer Tax Defined. Under California Revenue and Taxation Code Sections , counties and cities are authorized to impose a tax on the transfer of property located within their jurisdiction. The tax is commonly known by various names, including the Documentary Transfer Tax, or Real Property Transfer Tax, or Real Estate Transfer Tax (hereinafter, the "Transfer Tax"). How Much? The tax is due at closing and payable through escrow. This tax does not expire. All future sales of this property will be charged this tax at close of escrow. The amount of the transfer tax is based on the value or sale prices of the property that is transferred. The county rate is one dollar and ten cents ($1.10) for each one thousand dollars ($1.000) of value. The rate for non-charter ("general law") cities is one-half of the county rate and is credited against the county tax due. Charter cities may impose a transfer tax at a rate higher than the county rate. For any city or county in California, the Transfer Tax rate ("Tax Rate Table") is available at no charge from many sources, most conveniently on the website of the California Local Government Finance Almanac (sponsored by the California League of Cities): To estimate the transfer tax for the property, multiply the Property's estimated sales price (in thousands of dollars) by the amount shown in the Tax Rate Table for the city and county in which the property is located. Who Pays? The law states that, "the Transfer Tax must be paid by the person who makes, signs or issues any document subject to the tax, or for whose use or benefit the document is made, signed or issued." In practice, this means that the payment of the Transfer Tax is customarily made by the Seller or the Buyer, or shared by both, depending on the jurisdiction in which the transferred property is located. Are there any exemptions? The California Revenue and Taxation Code, which provides the statutory authority for counties to impose the transfer tax, specifically exempts from the transfer tax the following transactions: 1. Instruments in writing given to secure a debt. 2. Transfers whereby the federal or any state government, or agency, instrumentality or political subdivision thereof, acquires title to realty. 3. Transfers made to effect a plan of reorganization or adjustment (i) confirmed under the Federal Bankruptcy Act, (ii) approved in certain equity receivership proceedings or (iii) whereby a mere change in identity, form or place of organization is effected. 4. Certain transfers made to effect an order of the Securities and Exchange Commission relating to the Public Utility Holding Company Act of Transfers of an interest in a partnership (or, beginning January 1, 2000, an entity treated as a partnership for federal income tax purposes) that holds realty, if (i) the partnership is treated as continuing under IRC 708 and (ii) the continuing partnership continues to hold the realty. 6. Certain transfers in lieu of foreclosure. 7. Transfers, divisions or allocations of community, quasi-community or quasi-marital property between spouses pursuant to, or in contemplation of, a judgment under the Family Code. 8. Transfers by the State of California, or any political subdivision, agency or instrumentality thereof, pursuant to an agreement whereby the purchaser agrees to immediately reconvey the realty to the exempt agency. 9. Transfers by the State of California, or any political subdivision, agency or instrumentality thereof, to certain nonprofit corporations. 10. Transfers pursuant to certain inter vivos gifts or inheritances.
