Local Tax Exemptions
Under Pennsylvania law, local governments may include special provisions in local tax ordinances. Such provisions could include exemption for all or part of local per capita, occupation or occupational privilege taxes, and exemption of assessed home improvement costs from your real property taxes.
You may be eligible if your annual income does not exceed a specified amount or you are a resident of a designated deteriorated neighborhood.
The provision of such benefits is up to your local government. Therefore, even though you may be eligible for such a program, it may not be available in your community.
Get in touch with your local tax collector or your local government officials to learn more about local tax exemptions.
