Changes to Your Property?
- If you need to remove your Homestead Exemption because your property no longer qualifies, you must notify the Office of Property Assessment (OPA) within 45 days of the change.*
Complete the Homestead Exemption Removal/Change form for either purpose.
- Or if you need to change the percentage of your property used for something other than your primary residence, such as a business or rental property, you must also notify the OPA.
*To remove the Homestead for Tax Year 2015, this form must be filed by Sept. 13, 2014.
For cooperative (co-op) properties (when people own and operate the building where they live, but do not own individual units—forming a cooperative corporation), in addition to submitting a single Homestead Exemption application (one per OPA account number), a Homestead Exemption Co-op form must also be submitted. This form must be signed by an owner-occupant from each eligible unit. Contact the OPA at 215-686-9200 to request this form.
