The parcel tax exemption program is for property owners who are 65 years of age or older on July 1st preceding the tax year, and for persons receiving Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), regardless of age, who own and reside at the property for which the exemption is being claimed, and whose annual income does not exceed 250% of the 2014 federal poverty guidelines issued by the United States Dept. of Health and Human Resources (see link below for more information).

The exemption is for the principal place of residence and applies to one parcel only. Exemptions which are approved are effective for the life of the parcel tax, unless ownership of the property changes. Exemptions for applicants receiving disability benefits will be revoked if SSDI benefits end and/or if annual income exceeds 250% of the federal poverty guideliness above. 

To obtain an exemption from the parcel taxes in effect, an application must be filed with the District before July 1st preceding the next tax year. Applications may be requested by calling the District's Business Office at 831-429-3410, ext. 223. 

Applications for the 2015-16 tax year are being revised and will be available in September, 2015.
