Parcel Tax Exemption

The Portola Valley School District offers residents who are seniors age 65 or older or are receiving Social Security Disability Insurance benefits, regardless of age. To receive the exemption, applications and supporting documents must be submitted to the District office. Once granted, exemptions will remain in effect as long as the resident remains eligible.
