North Penn School District extends Tax Rebate to Renters
Renters to partake in North Penn School District's Tax Rebate
Lower-income renters and seniors, in the North Penn School District, will soon enjoy a tax break originally only offered to homeowners in the District.
In October of 2017 the North Penn School Board approved a property tax rebate, for certain homeowners, that could amount up to $162.50. The rebate was to be funded by state lottery and slot machine proceeds.
To have qualified for the discount, applicants must:
- own a home as their primary residence in the North Penn School District; and
- have a household income of no more than $35,000 annually; and
- be 65 years of age or older; or
- be a widow and widower aged 50 years of age or older; or
- be permanently disabled and 18 years of age or older
The program, however, was underutilized with the number of homeowners, and overall costs to support the program, coming in significantly under budget. With this, the rebate has been extended through the 2019-2020 tax year and now includes the, previously excluded demographic – Renters.
