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 therefore, reducing the property tax bill. **This translates to a savings of approximately $70.00 per year.

This proposition allows the Assessor to temporarily lower assessments when the market value on January 1 is lower than the factored base year value for that year.

Proposition 60 - Seniors and Disabled Replacement Dwelling Benefit
If you move within the county the taxable value of your original property may be transferred to your new property if certain conditions are met. This is a once in a lifetime exclusion from reassessment that could save you thousands of dollars.

Proposition 90 - Seniors and Disabled Replacement Dwelling Benefit
Effective January 1, 2014 the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors adopted an ordinance which now enables you to transfer the taxable value of your original property (outside of San Bernardino County) to your new property, within San Bernardino County, if certain conditions are met.

Other counties in California have passed ordinances enabling Proposition 90. We recommend that you contact the county to which you wish to move regarding Proposition 90 eligibility within that county.
