Parcel Tax Exemptions
Residents that live within the CUHSD boundaries can be exempted from paying the $85 CUHSD parcel tax if they fulfill either set of criteria:
You are a senior citizen (65 years or older), you are the owner of a parcel within the Campbell Union High School District, and that parcel is your principal residence.
You are receiving Supplemental Security Income for a disability, you are the owner of a parcel within the Campbell Union High School District, and that parcel is your principal residence.
To determine if your parcel is within the CUHSD boundaries, please click here. This will take you to the school locator page. Enter your street address, choose your city, and click Find My School. If it says no High Schools found, then you would not qualify for the parcel tax exemption. If it does list one of our schools (Branham, Boynton, Del Mar, Leigh, Westmont, Prospect, CACE), then continue with the application process.
As of 2017, this process only needs to be done once. After the initial exemption forms are approved, it will eliminate your CUHSD $85 parcel tax every year going forward until the tax sunsets in 2023.
To file for an exemption from the parcel tax for the first time, click here to fill out the electronic application form.
Due to the unprecedented events, we are experiencing at the moment, and to comply with the most recent COVID-19 guidelines the District is no longer accepting applications in person.
If you are having trouble accessing the electronic form, you may contact the CUHSD office by calling (408)371-0960.
Complete your exemption application for next year by June 15th of the current year.

If you qualify for a Senior Citizen Exemption and have not yet applied for one, please remember that you must have a copy of your most recent Property Tax Bill prior to turning in your exemption application. If you would like a refund, keep in mind you must pay your bill first and attach proof of payment prior to submitting your request for a refund.
