Property Tax Relief (Act 1)
The Property Tax Relief – Act 1 program was signed into Pennsylvania law in June 2006. The Law has the potential to provide some property tax relief to resident homeowners. The earliest possible property tax relief was available for the School District’s 2007-2008 fiscal year.
If you previously filed and qualified for the Act 50 exclusion, you are automatically registered for the Act 1 reduction. To determine if you already have an application on file with the County for the Act 50 and Act 1 tax programs, you can visit the Allegheny County Real Estate website. The “General Information” tab for your property will show “YES” in the Homestead line on the left side of the Web page if your application is on file.
NOTE: Applications must be submitted by the annual deadline for the exclusion to be in effect for the current and future tax years. This program is for SCHOOL tax purposes only.
Senior Citizen Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program
Property tax help is available for Pennsylvania senior citizens age 65 and older, widows or widowers age 50 and older and permanently disabled persons age 18 and older as they live on fixed incomes but are faced with rising property taxes. The state Taxpayer Relief Act is helping seniors and disabled residents remain in their homes and make ends meet through property tax relief. The income eligibility level for the Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program has been raised from $15,000 a year to $35,000 a year, excluding half of Social Security income, and the maximum rebate was increased from $500 to $650 for homeowners.
