Oopsie! It was a mistake. Sure. And she owns a house in Seaside dontcha know.
A City Council candidate did some scrambling this week when she was told that a property tax deduction she took would indicate she had recently made Seaside her primary residence.
Jenny McAdams, who lives in a rented home in Pacific Grove, said she unknowingly took the $7,000 primary residence deduction on her property tax on the Seaside home she owns in which she says she has long-term renters.
According to Monterey County Assessment Clerk Darlene Bagwell, the $7,000 homeowner’s exemption is entitled to those who own and occupy the home as their primary residence. With it, $7,000 is taken off the accessed value of the property, which amounts to saving $70 a year.
Jenny McAdams Cheats On Her Property Tax
Enforce the use of MJ or enforce the tax collection or enforce the wha, what I forget. Let’s see if the cannabis taxes can cover those millions.
Supervisor Jon Phillips noted the cannabis program had initially asked for more than $10 million, then cut the request to $7.4 million before settling at $2.7 million during a tough 2018-19 budget year. It was known that the assigned funding might need to be adjusted based on demonstrated program need. Phillips said it’s still possible the program might need even more funding in the future.
At the same time, Supervisors Jane Parker and Mary Adams said they were concerned about devoting more money to the cannabis program after the community had made it clear during county-sponsored forums earlier in the year that its priorities lay elsewhere, including early childhood education and health initiatives rather than public safety.
