Senior citizen homeowners who wish to claim the senior exemption from Davis school district parcel tax measures can file the necessary paperwork starting on May 15.
Exemption requests for the Davis Joint Unified School District Community Facilities District No. 1 and the Measures Q and W parcel taxes must be submitted between May 15 and June 15 for the 2011-12 tax year. Exemption requests for the recently approved Measure A must be submitted between May 15 and June 30.
To be eligible for the exemptions, the property owner, or eligible spouse, must be at least 65 years old before July 1, 2011, and the dwelling must be the primary residence of the property owner. An “eligible spouse” is a spouse who is not a legal owner, but will be at least 65 years old before July 1, 2011.
When applying for the first time, proof of age (i.e., driver’s license or birth certificate) and proof of ownership of the property (i.e., current tax statement or deed) are required.
If a property owner received a tax exemption for the current tax year, it will automatically be renewed for the 2011-12 tax year provided there is no change to the property ownership or residency.
Forms for CFD No. 1 and Measures Q, W and A are available online at http://www.djusd.net; at the customer service desk at the school district office, 526 B St.; and at the Davis Senior Center, 646 A St. For more information, call the school district office at (530) 757-5300, ext. 122.
