The enhanced 2019 Neshaminy School District Property Tax Assistance Program will begin in January, 2020.
The purpose of the program is to provide property tax relief to senior citizens residing in Neshaminy School District.
The program is available to homeowners who will reach the age of 65 by December 31st, 2019.
The program will provide tax rebates of up to $650 for senior citizens whose household income is less than $25,000.
This includes reporting half of Social Security or Railroad Retirement Benefits, and 100% of any other income.
If a senior citizen received a rebate in the past, the District makes every effort to send a rebate application for them to complete each year.
For new applicants, application forms will be available beginning in January 2020.
They will be available on the Neshaminy School District website, at local tax collector’s offices, or can be sent via U.S. mail by calling the Neshaminy Business Office directly at 215-809-6520.
This program is entering its 42nd year.
Since 1977, rebates totaling over $2.7 million have been paid by the school district, with over 230 senior citizens participating last year.
The goal is to help partially overcome today’s high cost of living for those on fixed incomes.
