Keeping LGBT People in Their Homes

Bill Number: AB 1700

UPDATE: AB 1700 was signed by Governor Jerry Brown on September 29, 2012. 

AB 1700

The death of a lifelong partner is traumatic. But under current law, that trauma can be worsened by property tax penalties that apply unequally to same-sex partners, especially impacting LGBT seniors. AB 1700 (Butler) will ensure that no LGBT person is put at risk of losing the home that he or she has built over a lifetime with a loved one.
