Applying for homestead exemption

Posted: March 01, 2013

HAVE YOU APPLIED for the homestead exemption?

If you're a homeowner, you have until July 31 to do so. The homestead will reduce your assessment by $30,000, although the amount of the exemption is subject to change.

Visit http://ph.ly/exemption to fill out a form online, or call the Office of Property Assessment at 215-686-9200 or 3-1-1 to apply over the phone. You can also mail it in.

Also ask about other forms of tax relief, like installment plans and tax freezes for seniors, by calling 215-686-6442 or visit http://ph.ly/revenue.
