Seniors 65 years and older who own property in Vallejo have until June 30th to file for a Measure K parcel tax exemption for 2014. Approved in 2012, this Greater Vallejo Recreation District (GVRD) parcel tax's intent, according to the ballot language, is to "To keep local parks/recreation facilities open/clean/safe with locally controlled funding that cannot be taken away by Sacramento; provide programs for children/teenagers/families/seniors; and prevent parks from becoming a haven for crime."

Savings for property owners varies. Seniors who own average residential parcel owners realize a savings of $48 and apartment and mobile home owners - $36. Owners of non-residential lots between one and five acres reap a $250 deduction and lots that exceed five acres, $500.

Measure K parcel taxes are levied on properties for six years, garnering annually an estimated $2.1 million in tax revenues for GVRD. Seniors who miss this year's deadline will have their exemption applied to the following year's property tax assessment.
