Property Tax Relief
(Act 1)

House Picture for Act 1 

Applications must be submitted by March 1 for the exclusion
to be in effect for the current and future tax years.

* This program is for SCHOOL tax purposes only * 

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 expected 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 Web Site. 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.

For questions on the Homestead or Farmstead Exclusions, please contact your local tax collector or the Allegheny County Assessments Office at 412-350-4600. Office hours are Monday – Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
