If you own and occupy your home as your principal place of residence on January 1, you may apply for an exemption of $7,000 off your assessed value for an annual savings of approximately $70 on your property taxes. New property owners will automatically receive an exemption application. The exemption remains in effect until terminated or there is a change in title to the property. A homeowners’ exemption may also apply to a supplemental assessment. For more information, call (925) 313-7481.
