DOES A LAST NAME CHANGE AFFECT PROPERTY TAXES IN CALIFORNIA ?

Hello

Transactions only to correct the name(s) of the person(s) holding title to real property or transfers of real property for the purpose of perfecting title to the property (for example, a name change upon marriage) is automatically excluded from reassessment.

No, a last name change does not effect the property tax.

Please do not forget or ignore to give a positive rating (look for the STARS or SMILEY FACES). It adds nothing to your costs but it assists me.
