Measure J Offers Local Tax Cut for Seniors, Relief for Some Elderly
The Cordova Recreation and Park District is granting a partial tax exemption for qualified property owners on the Measure J parcel tax. The CRPD Board of Directors approved a 20 percent reduction for residential property that is owned and the principal residence of adults aged 65 years or older in the qualifying tax year.
Measure J is a special tax on property passed by voters in November 2016 to help support CRPD’s goal of providing safe, clean and accessible parks and facilities to the community. Measure J will support specific areas in the District, including Rosemont, Larchmont, Riviera East, Gold River and most of the City of Rancho Cordova.
Applications for the senior discount are due by May 31, 2017. Applications are available online at www.crpd.com, at the CRPD District Office located at 2729 Prospect Park Drive, Suite 230 or at the Neil Orchard Senior Activities Center located at 3480 Routier Road. Applications may be brought in person or mailed to the District office or Senior Center.
CRPD will also be hosting an informational workshop at the Senior Center on May 15 from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. Reservations for the workshop will be taken at the Senior Center front desk.
