CA Sts & High Code Section 5898.33


If a public agency owning property, including property held in trust for any beneficiary, grants a leasehold or other possessory interest in the property, the contractual assessment may be levied on the leasehold or possessory interest and shall be payable by the owner of the leasehold or possessory interest. The assessment contract shall be entered into by the public agency that established the program and the lessee, and the public agency owning the property shall provide prior written consent to the contractual assessment.


At the time the assessment contract is executed, the term of the leasehold interest shall be at least as long as the term of the assessment contract.


If the contractual assessment on any possessory interest levied pursuant to subdivision (a) is unpaid when due, the tax collector may use those collection procedures that are available for the collection of assessments on the unsecured roll.
