Exemptions and Assistance Programs
Through the Assessor's Office you can apply for several exemptions:
- The Homeowner's Property Tax Exemption
- Veteran's Exemption
- Church Exemption
- Religious Exemption
- Welfare Exemption
These programs allow for assessment exemptions that result in tax savings, if applicable. For further information, contact the Assessor's Office at (707) 565-1888.
Another type of exemption is for school parcel tax. These exemptions only apply to direct charges not school bonds that are calculated based on the value of the property. These exemptions are granted by the taxing agency, which will need to be contacted directly for information on qualifying factors. For more information please visit out School Parcel Tax Exemptions section.
