Delaware County Council and the County Treasurer present information on the Homestead Exclusion Program so all eligible residents can take advantage of this property tax relief.
On April 13, 2009, the Governor implemented the Homestead and Farmstead Exclusions (Act 1), which allows school districts the ability to reduce their taxes based on revenue received from the state. This revenue is generated from gambling proceeds. The homestead exclusion reduces the assessed values of homestead-approved properties, reducing the school property tax on these homes.
In order to be eligible for this program, the homeowner must reside in a dwelling primarily used as their permanent home. In general, it is the address where you live, where you have registered to vote and have registered your driver’s license.
