San Anselmo Tax Rebate Information

San Anselmo Tax Rebate Information


If you are a San Anselmo property owner who has a financial hardship, you may qualify for a rebate of a portion or all of San Anselmo's Municipal Services Tax (called "General Purpose" on your property tax bill), Pension Override Tax and Library Parcel Tax.

Property owners who may be eligible to receive a rebate of these taxes include:
    1. Any household that is eligible for Public Assistance and/or Food Stamps from the Health and Human Services Department of the County of Marin;
    2. Any household whose total income (Line 7b on IRS Form 1040) is equivalent to or less than "very low income" for the number of persons in the household, as shown on the most current Federal Housing and Urban Development Income Limits for Marin County;
    3. Any household in which the principal wage earner or wage earners have been unemployed for at least 90 days prior to the application date.
For the 2020-21 program the income limits are:

1 person/household $60,900
2 person/household $69,600
3 person/household $78,300
4 person/household $87,000

The program is a REBATE PROGRAM, so property owners must first pay the taxes, then apply for a rebate in the spring of the year. Applications received are considered by the Town's Tax Equity Board, usually in May.

If you wish to be considered for the spring 2021 tax rebate program, please contact Helen Yu-Scott by email or phone, 258-4678. You can be mailed an application for the program in the spring of 2021 or you can print an application from here.

Please note: The Measure G Bonds (noted as "City Bonds" on your property tax bill) do not qualify for the tax rebate program. Also, rental property is not eligible to be considered for the rebate program.
