Parcel Tax Exemptions

Under Government Code Section 50079, taxpayers who qualify may be exempted from paying “qualified special taxes”. “Qualified special taxes” means special taxes that apply uniformly to all taxpayers or all real property within the school district, except that unimproved property may be taxed at a lower rate than improved property. To qualify, a taxpayer must fall within any or all of the following:

  • Persons who are 65 years of age or older.
  • Persons receiving Supplemental Security Income for a disability, regardless of age.
  • Persons receiving Social Security Disability Insurance benefits, regardless of age, whose yearly income does not exceed 250 percent of the 2012 federal poverty guidelines issued by the United States Department of Health and Human Services.

Currently, the following school districts (if any) have notified the Tax Collector of such qualified special taxes and information regarding exemptions can be obtained at the links below.
