CA Rev & Tax Code § 257.1 (2017)  

For the 1983–84 fiscal year and fiscal years thereafter, the assessor shall annually, prior to the lien date, mail a notice to every person who received the religious exemption for the previous fiscal year.

The notice shall be in a form and contain that information which the board may prescribe, and shall set forth the circumstances under which the property may no longer be eligible for exemption and advise the person of the duty to inform the assessor if the property is no longer eligible for exemption.

The notice shall include a card which is to be returned to the assessor by any person who desires to maintain eligibility for the religious exemption. That card shall be in the following form:

To all persons who have received a religious exemption for the ________ fiscal year.

QUESTION:Will the property to which the exemption applies in the ________ fiscal year continue to be used exclusively for religious purposes in the ________ fiscal year?

Yes ________ No ________

Signature:______________Title: ______________

Failure to return this card does not of itself constitute a waiver of exemption as called for by the California Constitution, but may result in onsite inspection to verify exempt activity.

(Amended by Stats. 1983, Ch. 312, Sec. 3.)
