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 2013/14 tax year the assessment will be $806.34.
In November 2012 voters approved Measure B, a special parcel tax of $196.00 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 2013/2014 Mill Valley School Assessment of $806.34 a property owner must reach the age of 65 before July 1, 2013 and use the property as their principal place of residence.
- For the 2013/2014 Mill Valley School Special Tax of $196.00 a property owner must reach the age of 65 before January 1, 2014 and use the property as their principal place of residence.
