On June 5, 2018, the voters approved passage of the Hope School District Measure S Parcel Tax. A parcel tax exemption is available for qualified seniors who are 65 years of age or older, and for person receiving Supplemental Security Income for disability, regardless of age.
To qualify for a senior exemption for the July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2019:
You must be the beneficial owner and tax payer for your home (or parcel).
You must use the home (or parcel) as your principal residence. Landlords are not exempt.The beneficial owner has the title in his/her name. The title may also be held for your benefit by a trustee or other fiduciary who acts on your behalf.
Once you have applied and been approved for an exemption, it will remain in effect for each year. You do not need to reapply every year.
