Property Tax Relief through Homestead Exclusion - Information: You only have to complete this application one time unless the property changes ownership or address with Assessment office.



Application for Homestead & Farmstead Exclusions:





The law:

  • Raises the maximum rebate for seniors from $650 to $1,000;
  • Increases the income cap for renters and homeowners to $45,000 a year; and
  • Ties the cap to increases in the cost of living so no seniors lose out just because their Social Security payment went up.

It's the first time the program has been expanded since 2006.

For property taxes and rent paid in 2021, Pennsylvanian residents age 65+, or widowed at age 50+, and people with disabilities age 18+ qualify for this Rebate. Half of Social Security income is excluded.
