“Philadelphia homeowners can now apply for a Homestead exemption that would provide some relief to those who could be hit hard under Mayor Nutter’s plan to move to a new property-tax system based on market values.
Homeowners can apply until July 31. Primary residences of all homeowners are eligible regardless of age or income.
Fill out the application here. You can get your OPA number by entering your address here. For additional information go to the city’s website. Completed applications can be mailed to the Office of Property Assessment.
The homestead exemption would knock $15,000 or more off of all homeowners’ assessed values.
