Homestead/Farmstead Tax Exclusion

Act 1 of 2006 (formerly Act 72) is the Homeowner Tax Relief Act. Its goal is to reduce school district reliance on the real property tax, to be achieved by putting in place new funding options, including local personal or earned income taxes and funds derived from gaming. The reduction in property taxes is achieved by applying these new funds to the homestead and farmstead exclusions.
