Homestead Exemption application

The Homestead Exemption reduces the taxable portion of your property assessment by $40,000 (starting for 2019 Real Estate Tax bills) if you own a home in Philadelphia and use it as your primary residence.

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

You can fill out the online application, 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

If you no longer qualify for the Homestead Exemption you must file the change/removal form.
