County of Nevada California: declare exemption or $75 fee

Recommended Posts

To All Mining Claim Holders:

I called the County of Nevada, California regarding the recording of the BLM Affidavit of Annual Assessment Form.

They informed me that if I do not write or declare "GC 27388.1 (a) (1); not related to real property" on the front of my Assessment form

that it would result in a $75.00 fee.

Please contact your respective counties to check this out.

Happy Detecting,

Mike

Hey Mike, Ive always understood a mining claim is considered real property.  It would be nice for claim owners not to have to pay this though.

I'd be careful there Mike. Mining claims are real property and the list of examples included with the law do mention mining claims. The risk is that your recording could be rejected and you would miss the recording deadline. I think California is the end of October?

I suggest you read the law and decide for yourself whether the $75 applies. It would be a shame to lose a good claim over $75.

You could get confused with their definitions too:

 

What is considered a “Parcel of Real Property”?

A: A parcel is defined, for the purposes of interpretation of new Government Code Section

27388.1 as: ”a contiguous piece of land of any size that is in one ownership.” The parcel is

described by its individual legal description.

 

My claims are in multiple ownerships.
