Tax Savings Programs

Attention San Bernardino County Homeowners. You Might Be Paying Too Much in Taxes.

You may be eligible for one of the following:


Homeowner's Exemption
Property owners may file an application for a Homeowners' Exemption on a residence that is both owned and occupied as the principal place of residence as of 12:01 a.m. on January 1. The exemption reduces the assessed value by $7,000 and reduces the property tax bill. This translates to a savings of about $70 per year.

Proposition 8 - Decline in Market Value
You may be paying too much in taxes. If your residence is overtaxed due to a falling market you may have it reassessed to current market value or lower to save money on your tax bill.
