City Council has created a special fund for Philadelphia homeowners whose real estate tax bills have increased significantly. If your Real Estate Tax bill increased by 50% or more, you may qualify for a one-time credit of up to $500. The credit will either pay a balance on your property taxes or will be added to your City of Philadelphia Real Estate Tax account as a credit for future years. The deadline to apply is January 31, at 5 p.m.
To be eligible, you must meet the following requirements:
- Live within the City of Philadelphia;
- Be the legal owner of the property and live the property as a primary residence;
- Property tax bill has increased by 50% or more between the 2022 and 2023 tax assessments; and
- Household income must be at or below 80% Area Median Income (AMI).
