Am I eligible for a Homeowner’s Exemption in San Francisco?
It depends. The Homeowner’s Exemption is available to San Francisco property owners who occupy the residence as their primary place of residence as of 12:01 am on January 1 each year.
Homeowner Exemptions are also available to the eligible owner of a dwelling subject to supplemental assessments resulting from a change in ownership or completion of new construction on or after January 1. The Homeowner’s Exemption reduces the net taxable value of a property, lowering your property taxes. In California, homeowners may file for a property tax exemption of up to $7,000 of assessed value.
Please contact the Assessor-Recorder's Office at (415) 554-5596 to apply for or request more information about the Homeowner’s Exemption.
