Disabled Veterans Exemption

If you are a California veteran who is rated 100% disabled, blind, or a paraplegic due to service-connected disability while in the armed forces (or if you are the un-remarried surviving spouse of such a veteran or of one who died of service-connected causes while on active duty) you may be eligible for an exemption of up to $150,000 off the assessed value of your home. Click on the button for an application for Disabled Veterans Exemption.

The State Board of Equalization’s Taxpayers’ Rights Advocate Office publishes Information Sheets to help taxpayers understand property tax laws and increase their awareness of property tax savings that may be available to them. An Information Sheet is available for the disabled veterans’ exemption; please click here to view Publication 800-7, Information Sheet, Property Tax Savings: Disabled Veterans’ Exemption or here for Information Sheets for other topics.

Proposition 19: Base Year Value Transfer – Over 55/Disabled/Disaster Victims
  • The changes become effective on April 1, 2021
  • Allows a homeowner who is over 55, disabled, or a victim of a wildfire or natural disaster to transfer the base year value to a new primary residence that is acquired or newly constructed within two years of the sale of the original primary residence, located anywhere in California, and of any value. 
  • An application must be filed with the Assessor’s Office to apply for a Base Value Transfer.
  • For a replacement home of greater value, requires the difference in the full cash values be added to the transferred base year value. 
  • Allows homeowners who are over 55 or disabled to transfer the base year value three times. 

Note: Currently, our office is waiting on additional information and direction from the State of California Board of Equalization office. Once we receive the additional information regarding these changes, we can better assist with answering any questions you may have regarding the application of the new law.
