Are there tax exemptions for low-income households?

A:

Yes, there are exemptions for very low-income households (50% of area median income) and for low-income senior households (80% of area median income). The definitions of low-income and very low-income are based on a formula from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).  In 2017, single Oakland residents earning less than $36,550 were considered very low-income, and single Oakland residents earning less than $56,300 were considered low-income. Larger household sizes have increased income limits.
