How do I get a Homeowners' Exemption?

New property owners will usually receive an exemption application within 90 days of recording a deed. If you acquired the property more than 90 days ago and have not received an application, please email the Assessor’ Office, call 530-889-4300, or download the Homeowners' Exemption form (PDF).
