CA Rev & Tax Code Section 214.16


Any outstanding tax, interest, or penalty that was levied or imposed upon property that qualifies for an exemption pursuant to Section 214 and satisfies the criteria specified in subparagraph (D) of paragraph (1) of subdivision (g) of Section 214 between January 1, 2002, and January 1, 2009, shall be canceled, provided that the owner of the property certifies that all of the following conditions were met at the time the tax was levied:


The owner was not organized and did not operate for profit.


There was a recorded deed restriction or other legal document that restricted the project’s usage and that provided that the units designated for use by lower income households were continuously available to or occupied by lower income households at rents not exceeding those prescribed by Section 50053 of the Health and Safety Code.


The funds that would have been necessary to pay property taxes were used to maintain the affordability of, or reduce rents otherwise necessary for, the units occupied by lower income households.


For purposes of this section, “lower income households” has the same meaning as defined by Section 50079.5 of the Health and Safety Code.
