Exemptions, Exclusions, Savings

Parcel Tax Exemption

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.

California AB 2458 directs the Treasurer-Tax Collector to provide information on our website regarding school district parcel tax exemptions. School districts placing a parcel tax on the County property tax bill are required to provide information on their website related to exemption from the parcel tax. The list of school districts below is currently placing a parcel tax on the Annual Secured Property Tax Bill. Please see the school district’s website or contact them directly for specific parcel tax information.
