The law provides for property tax reduction allocations to be distributed by the Commonwealth to each school district, and the state funds must then be used to reduce local residential school property tax bills. Property tax reduction will be through a "homestead or farmstead exclusion." Under a homestead or farmstead property tax exclusion, the assessed value of each homestead or farmstead is reduced by the amount of the exclusion before the property tax is computed. Initial property tax reductions funded by allocations from the Commonwealth took effect July 1, 2008. To receive school property tax relief for tax years beginning July 1, 2015, or January 1, 2016, this form must be filed by March 1, 2015. Your school district is required to notify you by December 31 of each year if your property is not approved for the homestead or farmstead exclusion or if your approval is due to expire. 1. If known, fill in the tax map parcel number for which you are seeking a homestead exclusion. You can find this number on your real property tax bill. If you do not have a real property tax bill, call your local tax collector or the county assessment office (724-830-3411). 2. Fill in the address of the property for which you are seeking an exclusion. 3. Fill in your municipality and school district. If you are not sure what your municipality and school district are, contact your local tax collector or county assessment office (724-830-3411) 4. Fill in your name and the name of other owners, such as a co-owner of the property. The application must be signed by an owner for whom the property is his or her primary residence. If the property has more than one owner, signatures of additional owners are not required. 5. If your mailing address differs from the address of the property for which you are seeking a homestead exclusion, fill in your mailing address. 6. List phone numbers where you can be reached during the day, and the evening, if you are unavailable during the day. 7. Only a primary residence of an owner may receive the homestead exclusion. This is where you intend to reside permanently until you move to another home. You may be asked to provide proof that this property is your primary residence, such as your driver's license, your voter's registration card, your personal income tax form or your local earned income tax form. 8. Do you have another residence that you claim as your primary residence? For instance, do you claim another state as your primary residence, or another county in Pennsylvania?
