Exemptions

Homeowner's Exemption

If you own a home and occupy it as your principal place of residence on January 1, you may apply for a Homeowners' Exemption. This exemption will reduce your annual tax bill by about $70.

If you build or acquire a home, and there was no exemption on the annual tax roll, you may apply for a Homeowners' Exemption on the supplemental tax roll. In order to qualify, you must occupy the home within 90 days of the completion of new construction or the change in ownership. You should also apply for this exemption within 30 days of receiving a Notice of Supplemental Assessment.

You must immediately notify the Assessor's Office if a property becomes ineligible for a Homeowner's Exemption after it has been granted an exemption.

Homeowners' Exemptions are not automatically transferred between properties. If you move, you must file an application for a new exemption.

For answers to the most commonly asked questions about the Homeowner's Exemption, go to our Homeowner's Exemption Frequently Asked Questions page.

Disabled Veterans' Exemption

If you are a veteran who is totally disabled (service related 100%), blind in both eyes, or has lost the use of more than one limb as a result of injury or disease during military service, you may apply for a Disabled Veteran's Exemption. It is also available to unmarried surviving spouses of such a veteran. For answers to the most commonly asked questions about the Disabled Veterans' Exemption, go to our Disabled Veterans' Exemption Frequently Asked Questions page. Click HERE for the Disabled Veterans' Exemption claim form.

Institutional Exemptions

Real and personal property used exclusively by a church, college, cemetery, museum, school, or library may qualify for an exemption from property taxation. Properties owned and used exclusively by a nonprofit religious, charitable, scientific, or hospital corporation may also be eligible. If you or your organization has received its Organizational Clearance Certificate from the State, click HERE to download the necessary claim forms. If you have not obtained a Clearance Certificate from the State, see the link below.

All Institutional Exemptions (Welfare Exemptions) filed prior to 1-1-2004 will be processed by both the State Board of Equalization and the local Assessors Offices. Beginning 1-1-2004, all organizations wishing to file a claim for exemption will be required to obtain an Organizational Clearance Certificate issued by the State Board of Equalization. That Certificate will then be provided to the local Assessors Offices and a determination of exemption status will be made on a property by property basis at the local level. All groups that currently have an active exemption will automatically receive an Organizational Clearance Certificate from the State Board of Equalization. For more information on the recent changes please visit their web site at: www.boe.ca.gov/proptaxes/welfarevets.htm.

The State Board of Equalization has published an informational booklet that is intended as a guide for organizations that wish to file for a property tax exemption through the Welfare Exemption. It is Publication #149 and can be viewed at http://www.boe.ca.gov/proptaxes/pubcont.htm.
