• NPSD Property Tax Rebate Program

    NPSD has a new way in which some of our taxpayers can benefit from tax relief. At an action meeting of the NPSD Board of School Directors in October 2017, the school board unanimously approved a property tax rebate program that will see a discount of $62.50 to $162.50 for certain homeowners. To qualify for this discount, applicants must:

    • own a home as their primary residence in the North Penn School District and have a household income of no more than $35,000 annually (excluding one-half of social security benefits); and
      • be 65 years of age or older; or
      • be a widow and widower aged 50 years of age or older; or
      • be permanently disabled and 18 years of age or older.

    The property tax rebate program is based on the existing Pennsylvania Property Tax and Rent Rebate program which has been in effect since 1971 and is funded by state lottery and slot machine proceeds. North Penn homeowners must qualify for the state rebate program to qualify for the district rebate program. NPSD is granting a 25 percent rebate of the state's rebate and is broken down as follows:

    • $162.50 annual rebate for North Penn homeowners with a yearly household income between $0 to $8,000;
    • $125 annual rebate for North Penn homeowners with a yearly household income between $8,001 to $15,000;
    • $75 annual rebate for North Penn homeowners with a yearly household income between $15,001 to $18,000; and
    • $62.50 annual rebate for North Penn homeowners with a yearly household income between $18,001 to $35,000.
