Early Voting Already Started! Voter Registration Ends on October 19th

SAN FRANCISCO - The 2020 election is only three weeks away. Assessor Carmen Chu hosted a media roundtable to explain property tax related items on the California state ballot. She wants to make sure eligible voters and families in our communities are aware of these measures because they may have major impacts on family financial planning in the near future. Proposition 19, also commonly known as the “Realtor’s Measure”, proposes changes to two statewide property tax saving programs: the parent-child transfer exclusion and senior assessment transfer.

Assessor Chu, founder of the Family Wealth Forum, explained the proposed changes in detail in the video below:
