Measure H parcel tax exemption filing
If you are at least age 65 or will be age 65 by June 30, 2019, you may file for exemption from the annual $100 Evergreen School District parcel tax on your principal residence. If there are joint owners of your principal residence, only one owner needs to be age 65.
If you had the exemption from the parcel tax for 2017/2018, your exemption has been automatically renewed by the School District. There is nothing more you need to do.
Not sure whether you have the exemption? Go to your last property tax bill. Look under the section labeled "Parcel Tax / Special Assessments". If a line item reads "Evergreen Measure H 2014" followed by "$100" you are paying the tax. If you can't find this listing, you are currently exempt from the tax. Still not sure? The District has a list of the seniors with the exemption which you can review to check for your name.
If you would like to apply for the exemption for the 2018/2019 tax year, you must file for the exemption in person with documents to prove (1) your property ownership, (2) your residency, and (3) your age. You may apply for the exemption at the School District Office at 3188 Quimby Road, Monday – Friday from 8:00 to 4:00 p.m. through May 31, 2018, or you can call Pearl Casey at 408-270-6863 to make personal arrangements.
