Homestead Exemption application

The Homestead Exemption reduces the taxable portion of your property assessment by $100,000 if you own a home in Philadelphia and use it as your primary residence. Homeowners will typically save up to $1,399 each year with Homestead starting in 2025.

Once we accept your Homestead application, you never have to reapply, unless your deed changes.

You can fill out the application online, or print one of the application forms and send them by mail to:

City of Philadelphia
Department of Revenue
PO Box 52817
Philadelphia, PA 19115

You must own the property and live in it as your primary residence to qualify. If you no longer qualify for the Homestead Exemption you must file the change or removal form.
