Description

California Seniors Special Fund

If you and/or your spouse are 65 years of age or older as of January 1, 2020, and claim the Senior Exemption Credit, you may make a combined total contribution of up to $244 or $122 per spouse/RDP.

Contributions made to this fund will be distributed to the Area Agency of Aging Councils (TACC) to provide advice on and sponsorship of Senior Citizens issues. Any excess contributions not required by TACC will be distributed to senior citizen service organizations throughout California for meals, adult day care, and transportation.

Only taxpayers or spouses who claim the senior exemption credit on their California return may contribute to the Senior Special Fund. The contribution amount must not exceed the amount of the senior exemption credit. See table below:
