How do I get a Homeowner's Exemption?
New property owners will usually receive an exemption application enclosed with their notice of supplemental assessment, approximately 90 to 120 days after the deed is recorded. If you acquired the property more than 120 days ago, and have not received an application, please call (925) 313-7481 for an application.
