PARCEL TAX EXEMPTIONS

In November 2008 voters approved Measure A, an amendment of the District's existing parcel tax and extends the tax until 2018. The tax will increase by 5% every year. For the 2015/16 tax year the assessment will be $889.00.

In November 2012 voters approved Measure B, a special parcel tax of $201.88 commencing July 1, 2013 and expiring June 30, 2021. The special tax measure will increase commensurate with the annual percentage increase to the San Francisco–Oakland-San Jose consumer price index (CPI), not to exceed 3% per year.

Requirements for an exemption are:

  • For the 2015/2016 Mill Valley School Assessment of $889.00 a property owner must reach the age of 65 before July 1, 2015 and use the property as their principal place of residence.

  • For the 2015/2016 Mill Valley School Special Tax of $206.34 a property owner must reach the age of 65 before January 1, 2016 and use the property as their principal place of residence.

Please note: The exemption is not automatic when you turn 65. If you choose to take the exemption, you must apply.
