City’s LOOP Program Provides Tax Relief to Longtime Homeowners
Many residents in our neighborhood will see a significant increase in their 2014 property tax thanks to the Actual-value Initiative (AVI). However, if you meet certain requirements involving the length of time you’ve lived in your home and your income, you may qualify for relief from the Longtime Owner Occupants Program (LOOP).
From the City’s website:
We have seen many positive changes to our neighborhoods. And with those changes some home values have risen, causing some longtime homeowners to face potentially steep increases in their tax bills. Homeowners with substantial changes in their property assessment may qualify for a discount on Real Estate Taxes with the Longtime Owner Occupants Program (LOOP).
Check if your home qualifies for LOOP and how much you can save.
EPX Town Watch helps Greater Phila Cares Winter Coat Drive
The Greater Philadelphia region is a cold place to be during the winter, especially if you do not have a warm coat.
Be part of the Greater Philadelphia Cares 17th Annual Winter Coat Drive.
Last year over 130 businesses, civic groups and individuals collected 6000 new and gently used coats that were distributed throughout the region…and EPX donated 79!
Every year, thousands of men, women, and children in the Greater Philadelphia region live through the cold winter season without a coat to keep warm. You may help provide them with this basic necessity. This event is a reminder that there are thousands of people whose only holiday wish is a warm coat for their children, parents, or themselves.
Bring your new or “gently used” winter coat(s) to the January 6, 2014 EPX General Membership meeting held at the Ss. Neumann-Goretti High School!
