Voters in our District renewed a special Parcel Tax assessment of $85 for five years. Parcel Tax funds allow Campbell Union High School District (CUHSD) to restore and maintain current programs, reduce class sizes, enhance campus safety and recruit and retain qualified teachers. The tax expires after five years at the end of fiscal year 2014-2015. The tax is assessed against each parcel of taxable land within CUHSD boundaries. A parcel is defined as any unit of land in the District that now receives a separate tax bill from the Santa Clara County Assessor's Office.
Exemptions from the $85 CUHSD Parcel Tax are available to Senior Citizens (65 years or older) who own and occupy, as a principal residence, a parcel and apply to the District for exemption. Every Senior Citizen who applies qualifies for the exemption, and the tax will automatically sunset in 2015. Individuals totally disabled by the Social Security Administration receiving Supplemental Security income as a result, may also apply for the exemption.
