I need to know what state. His being on Supplemental Security Income (SSI) alone doesn't exempt this (in any state's school district that I'm aware of.)

...

Age, is typically what drives these exemptions

...

Also clarify that you DO know the difference between SSI, SSDI and Social Security retirement.

...

The main difference between Social Security Disability ( SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is the fact that SSDI is available to workers who have accumulated a sufficient number of work credits, while SSI disability benefits are available to low-income individuals who have either never worked or who haven't earned enough work credits to qualify for SSDI.

Exonerations from the Per Capita Tax and Occupation Tax vary per each district, and state. So again, please let me know what jurisdiction you're talking about
