MERA Logo
A Process for Income Qualified Seniors to Claim an Exemption from MERA’s Parcel Tax

Qualified low-income seniors in Marin County are eligible to file for a tax exemption from a parcel tax that supports the County’s next-generation emergency radio system. This exemption must be applied for annually, so anyone who qualified for this exemption this past year, must re-apply again.

In November, 2014, Marin County voters approved Measure A, a parcel tax measure to fund the Marin Emergency Radio Authority’s Next Generation Public Safety Radio System. One item included in the measure was the ability of income-qualified senior homeowners to file for an exemption from the parcel tax.

Eligibility:
To qualify for a low-income senior exemption for the Measure A parcel tax for a single-family residence, you must
(1) be 65 years of age or older by December 31, 2018,
(2) own and occupy your residence, and
(3) not have earned a total annual household income of more than $73,750 in 2017.

Deadline:
The deadline to file a low-income senior exemption application for the 2018-2019 tax year is June 1, 2018. The exemption must be renewed annually.

Applications:
Applications for exemption and additional details are available at: www.meraonline.org
