Many California homeowners are eligible for a parcel tax exemption and don’t even know it. Do you feel overtaxed? You may actually be eligible for an exemption if you pay a parcel tax or special assessment on your Californian home. Check your property tax bill. Most of the taxes due come from the property tax based on the actual value of your home, of course. Yet, if there is another item on the bill, like a parcel tax or a special assessment, you might want to look into it a little more. See, your parcel taxes are approved by voters in your local area. This type of tax is based on things like house size or lot size. You may qualify for an exemption on this part of your tax bill.

Yet, no one is going to tell you that you could qualify for an exemption if you don’t ask. So, to see if you qualify for a parcel tax exemption, call the local agency that handles your property taxes. The contact information is listed right on your property tax bill. Additionally, the California Tax Foundation has come helpful (but unofficial) county-by-county information about parcel taxes and exemptions.

We hope this helps you out and that you keep us in mind if you ever need to sell probate real estate or are in the market for a new home.
