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.

 

Or

 

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 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, fill out one of the following application forms (linked below as a PDF) and mail the completed form with requested attachments to:

If you are having trouble accessing the PDFs or printing them out, you may request a copy of the Parcel Tax Exemption forms from the CUHSD office.

Complete your exemption application for next year by June 15th of the current year.
