District homeowners who are 75 years old or older may be eligible for a property tax rebate. The rebate is made available through the District’s Property Tax Rebate Program. To be eligible, an applicant, or someone on their behalf, must have paid the 2017 school property tax bill in full, by Dec. 31, 2017.


An applicant or their spouse must meet certain income eligibility guidelines and have been previously approved to participate in the Pennsylvania Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program. An approved applicant is eligible to receive a rebate ranging from $250 to $650. The actual rebate amount is based on household income. The deadline for rebate applications, related to the payment of 2017 property taxes, is Dec. 31, 2018.
