Reminder: Homestead Exemption Deadline is approaching!

The deadline to apply for the Homestead Exemption for the 2015 tax year is September 13, 2014. The Homestead Exemption is a Philadelphia property tax program that reduces the taxable portion of your property assessment by $30,000. If you are granted the Homestead Exemption, your real estate tax bill will likely be lower next year. You can apply directly over the phone at 215-686-9200!

To qualify:

  • You must live in your property as your primary residence; AND
  • You must have an ownership interest in the property.
