AVAILABLE FOR THE 2019-20 TAX YEAR
Homeowners age 65 and older have through May 31, 2019, to file for the senior exemption for the 2019-20 Tax Year
Pittsburg-Senior Citizens who own and occupy a home in Pittsburg can still apply for exemption from the Pittsburg Unified School District’s Measure S Parcel Tax passed by voters in November 2016. Senior Citizens, age 65 and older, must complete a simple form to be exempt from paying the yearly parcel tax associated with the passage of Measure S.
In order to be eligible for the exemption in 2019-20, homeowners must certify that they:
--own and reside in the home for which they are claiming an exemption
--be at least 65 years old on or before July 1, 2019.
If you are exempt from the parcel tax in previous years, you DO NOT need to do it again. The exemption is good for the life of the parcel tax which is 2024.
