This should make cottage owners happy

Uncapped SEV's and re-assessed property taxes on real estate transfers within families have created a tough situation for those looking to pass on residential property upon a family member's passing, most often family cottages along Lake Michigan.

A lot of the time, families will have to sell a property upon the death of the parent because the tax implications are just too burdensome, thus ripping away a valuable family heirloom.  Thanks to Public Act 497 of 2012, families now have the option of transferring residential property without uncapping property taxes.  The new law is limited to first-of-kin relationships and applies to residential property only.  There are some questions about how to ensure the property qualifies for remaining uncapped, since it is all very new.
