Sonoma County recompensed for revenues lost An additional 52,919 acres of California land has been designated "open space" to qualify for lowered tax assessments during the 1979- 80 fiscal year, State Con- troller Kenreth Cory reported today. "The State has spent $13,214,634 as reim- bursements for property tax income lost by counties and cities m which this open space land is located," Cory said. "The reimbursements were based on claims ac- counting for 16,179,417 acres of such land as compared to 16,126,498 acres in 1978-79. No payment was made to school districts as their share was included in the Proposition 13 bailout money." Sonoma County received $161,717.40. The reimbursement program was established by the 1972 Legislature to recompense local govern- ments for revenues lost because of lower assessed value on property qualifying as open space in accordance with Ihe California Lands Conservation Act of 1965 of $76,945 but this year 21 tWilliamson Act). cities shared $81,340.

Homeowner's Advisor QUESTION: My wife and I are considering selling our home and buying a more expensive one. In a few months I will turn 55. A friend told me to wait until I am 55 to sell my house. He says there might be some tax advantage to waiting. Is he right ? ANSWER: I'm sure your friend is referring to a provision of the law which allows you to sell your residence and, if you are 55 or older, exclude up to $100,000 from taxation. In your case, however, there is no advantage to delaying the move. Another provision of the tax laws called "residence replacement rule" aays that if you sell your home and purchase a more expensive one within 18 months of the' sale, you have no reportable gain on the initial sale. The residence replacement rule may be used more than once. if you do finally sell without replacing when you are 55 or older, or if you purchase a lesa expensive home than the one you sell, you can then invoke the provisioml of the one-time $100,000 capital gains exclusion.
