On June 7, 2016, voters approved Measure G Parcel Tax assessment for $142.00 per parcel for eight years. Parcel Tax funds allow Moreland School District to attract and retain high quality teachers, maintain high-quality science, reading and math programs, including classroom technology and learning materials, keep class size small and keep school libraries open and accessible to students. The tax is assessed against each parcel of taxable land within MSD boundaries.
Exemptions from the $142.00 Moreland School District Parcel Tax are available to Senior Citizens (65 years or older) who own and occupy, as a principal residence, a parcel and apply to the District for exemption. In addition, we have available Supplemental Security Income Exemption (SSI) (owner/occupants receiving supplemental security income for a disability), SS Disability Insurance (SSDI), and a Contiguous Parcel Tax Exemption. Applications are accepted beginning the 1st week of January until June 15th. Please pass this information along to the seniors in your neighborhood.
To file for a first time exemption from the parcel tax, seniors must apply in person and bring the following items with them. The period to apply for the exemption is January 6, 2020 - June 15, 2020.
