In some cases, yes. Transfers from grandparent to grandchild are eligible for reassessment exclusion only if all the parents of the grandchild, that qualify as children of the grandparent, are deceased. In order to receive an exclusion, a Claim for Reassessment Exclusion Transfer from Grandparent to Grandchild (BOE-58-G) (PDF) must be filed with the Assessor's office within a specific time frame. A claim must be filed within three years after the date of transfer (event), or prior to transfer to a third party, whichever is earlier, or within 6 months after the mailing of the notice of supplemental or escape assessment.
If the time requirements have expired, and the property has not been transferred to a third party, a claim can still be filed, however, the exclusion will only apply to future tax years.
