Residents who are 65 and over or disabled can apply for a 70 percent reduction in a local property tax assessment for school improvements if there are no school-age children living at home.

People who live in homes built before 1987 pay an assessment of $45.84 a year under Measure A. With the reduction, they would pay $13.75. Residents whose homes were built between January 26, 1987 and June 30, 1998 pay $117.84 annually. With the reduction they would pay $35.35. The lower rates also apply to apartments and mobile homes. Landlords must pass the tax savings on to renters who receive the reduction.

People who qualify for the tax reduction must reapply each year between April 15 and June 30. This can be done by phone, mail or in person. Read more » about Tax cut for seniors, disabled residents
