Legislation BACLT is working with the California CLT Network on two pieces of legislation to reduce property taxes on CLT properties. BACLT will take a leading role in reducing property taxes on Limited Equity Housing Cooperatives within a Community Land Trust. Others will work on legislation to exempt CLT properties from taxes during the development phase. Most affordable housing in California is developed as rental housing and qualifies for reductions and exemptions of property taxes. Since CLTs develop affordable ownership housing, the properties are often assessed at market values and property taxes are based on those valuations. We hope to change that in 2018.
