Homestead & Farmstead Exclusion
The Taxpayer Relief Act(Special Session Act 1 of 2006)
Pennsylvania providesbroad-based property tax relief in 2018-19 based on The Taxpayer Relief Act (Special Session Act 1 of 2006). According to the Pennsylvania Department of Education, Quakertown Community School District will receive a property tax reduction allocation of $2,096,276.22 from the total available state-funded local tax relief in 2019-20.
The $2,096,276.22 will be divided among all homestead and farmstead approved properties within the Quakertown Community School District.
A homestead eligible property must be a Pennsylvania's Permanent primary residence on which property taxes are paid.
A farmstead exclusion provides property tax relief to farmers. A farmstead applies to buildings used for agricultural purposes on a farm that is a least 10 contiguous acres. The farmstead must also be the primary residence of its owner. Farmers can be eligible for both a homestead exclusion and a farmstead exclusion.
To become homestead or farmstead approved a Pennsylvania resident must submit an application to the county assessor. Buck's County Board of Assessment handles the applications for Quakertown Community School District. Theapplication deadline is March 1. Residents that acquire property in the school district after the March 1 deadline can apply but must wait until the following year to qualify for a homestead or farmstead exclusion.
The amount of property tax relief will vary from one school district to another throughout the state of Pennsylvania. The property tax relief formula was designed to send the most state resources to the communities with the greatest tax burden and least local wealth.
Quakertown Community School District Homestead and Farmstead approved properties will receive a reduction of $228.43, on their 2019-20 School Property Tax Bill dated July 1, 2019.
