Save Property Taxes via the PA Homestead Exclusion

The Homeowner Tax Relief Act of 2004 provided Pennsylvania property owners with another mechanism at their disposal to potentially lower their property tax burden.  If your property is used as a personal residence, you are likely eligible to receive an assessment reduction called the Homestead Exclusion.  The reduction that you receive based on the Homestead Exclusion will vary from year to year depending on the amount of money funded into the tax savings program.  The Homestead Exclusion will supplement any other reduction you receive, for example, via an annual property assessment appeal.

In most cases, your school district will mail you an application for Homestead Exclusion several months prior to the March 1st deadline.  There is no cost to file the application.  If you do not receive an application, I recommend that you call your local school district office or your County Board of Assessment Appeals. 

It would be my pleasure to discuss any questions that you may have regarding reducing your property tax burden by filing one of the following applications: a Homestead Exclusion, “Clean and Green” (Act 319), and/or Annual or Interim Assessment Appeal
