Parcel Tax Benefits
On May 5, 2015, voters in the Campbell Union School District approved Measure B, a parcel tax that provides stable, local funding to protect and improve academic programs and retain qualified teachers. It is assessed against each parcel of taxable land in the District, and allows for exemptions for some homeowners.
A parcel is defined as any unit of land within the District boundaries that now receives a separate tax bill from the Santa Clara County Tax Collector's Office.
We estimate that the parcel tax will generate over $800,000 in stable revenue annually for eight years. It is set to expire on June 30, 2023.
The funds collected from the parcel tax can only be spent on the stated purposes approved by the voters. The District’s independent Citizens Oversight Committee ensures that the funds are spent only for the purposes approved by the voters in the May 5, 2015 election, provide accountability, and report its findings to the community.
