Qualified low-income homeowners can receive a full refund of their Davis park maintenance tax and open space protection tax for 2012-13 by returning a completed city application form by June 28.
This is an annual refund program, not an exemption from the tax, which appears on your property tax bill. To be eligible, applicants must be owner-occupants of property in Davis and meet the low-income requirements for the gross or total combined household income.
Maximum income limits for both taxes are based on 50 percent of median income for your household size. For example, the total or gross combined household income for one person cannot exceed $26,950, for a family of two it cannot exceed $30,800. The limit for a family of four is $38,450 and the limit for a family of eight is $50,800.
Only one application is required for both refund programs.
If you think you might qualify, pick up an application at the Davis Senior Center, 646 A St.; at the public counters for the Finance/Community Development or Human Resources departments at City Hall, 23 Russell Blvd.; Community Services Department, 600 A St., Suite C; or Police Department, 2600 Fifth St.
