Non-Profit Tax Exemption

Qualifying not-for-profit organizations are eligible for a Real Estate Tax Exemption from the City of Philadelphia, as long as the use of the property is within the scope of the organization’s tax-exempt purpose.
Non-profit organizations typically perform activities and provide valuable services that benefit Philadelphians. The scale of some of these services would be threatened if the organization was subject to taxes. By providing a non-profit with indirect financial support (through the tax exemption), the City actually receives a direct benefit in return, as the organization is performing an activity that relieves some burden that would otherwise fall to the City.
