Property Taxes, Titling, & Agreements

Please join the Beck Law Group this Wednesday, July 30, 2014 , from 6:00 to 7:30 pm at the San Francisco LGBT Center to learn more about property tax, property titling, and property co-ownership issues affecting same-sex and unmarried couples.

Property Taxes, Titling & Agreements

For Same Sex and Unmarried Couples

 

6:00 to 7:30 pm, Wednesday July 30

The past year has seen dramatic changes, not only in the federal recognition of same-sex marriage, but also in rules relating to California property taxes for co-owners who are not married to each other and are not domestic partners. Both of these changes can have dramatic and very expensive consequences.

Location: San Francisco LGBT Center

1800 Market Street, San Francisco, CA 94102

(Please note: venue changed from prior notice)

Among the topics discussed:

  • New 2013 Property Tax rule affecting owners not married to each other, and not domestic partners;
  • Partial repeal of a 2003 Property Tax rule affecting owners not married to each other, and not domestic partners;
  • Community property titling for same-sex married couples, and related updates that should be considered after the United States v. Windsor decision last year.

People who should strongly consider attending:

  • Realtors, mortgage professionals, and title officers;
  • People who co-own property with someone with whom they are not married and not domestic partners;
  • Same-sex married couples who own property and who have not updated their deeds or estate plans after the Supreme Court's decision in Windsor.

Banned from Donating Blood

Banned from Donating Blood
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) currently bans any male donor who has had sex with another man from donating blood and bone marrow, regardless of the fact that all blood is tested for HIV/AIDS and that organizations such as the American Red Cross and the American Medical Association are calling to lift this ban. Additionally, the shortage of bone marrow donors affects minority communities disproportionally, and this ban impedes the chances of finding bone marrow matches.

GAPA urges the community to rally against this archaic ban and supports Mayor Evan Low's petition calling the FDA to change their position.
