Shelly Scott, Assessor - Recorder - County Clerk

All homeowners in Marin County may be eligible for a $7,000 exemption on the assessed value of their primary home. By applying for the Homeowners exemption, you can save approximately $70 on your property taxes each year.


Organizations operating for religious, scientific, hospital or charitable purposes may qualify for a property tax exemption. The Marin County Assessor co-administers the exemptions with the California State Board of Equalization.
