INSTALLMENT DUE DATES
Each year the Board of School Directors will approve a resolution regarding the collection and payment of school real property taxes in installments as required by ACT 1. It should be noted that payment of school real estate property taxes in installments negates the 2% discount for early payment. It is advised that all residents calculate the loss of the 2% discount vs. the acceptance of installment tax payments. These payments will be due in equal installments on August 31, October 31, and December 31.
Property tax bills for 2023-2024 will be reduced by $178.40 for qualified homeowners in the District under the ACT 1 Homestead/Farmstead Exemption program. This program is made possible through the distribution of a portion of gaming funds provided from taxes on the slots casinos throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
To qualify, the property must be an owner-occupied residence and the property owner must have filed and received approval via a homestead exemption application with Allegheny County by March 1, 2022. To check the homestead exemption status of your property, visit the Allegheny County website.
The tax reduction will not be distributed as a check, it will appear as a reduced assessment line item on property tax bills.
