The 2012 Neshaminy School District Property Tax Assistance Program began January 2013.  The purpose of the program is to provide property tax relief to our senior citizens.  The program is available to homeowners who will reach the age of 65 by December 31, 2012.  The enhanced program will now provide tax rebates of up to $650 for senior citizens whose household income is less than $20,000.  You only need to report half of your Social Security or Railroad Retirement Benefits, and 100% of any other income.

If you have received a rebate in the past, the district makes every effort to send a rebate application for you to complete each year.  If you have not received a rebate in the past, rebate application forms are now available.  They are available on the Neshaminy School District web site, www.neshaminy.org at your local tax collector’s office, by U.S. Mail by calling the Accounting Office directly, 215-809-6615 or via email mmackay@neshaminy.k12.pa.us

This program is entering its 35th year with total rebates exceeding $2.2 million to our senior citizens.  We hope this rebate will help to partially overcome today’s high cost of living for those seniors on fixed incomes.

We would also like to alert you to the probability that if you qualify for Neshaminy’s rebate program, then you would also qualify for the Pennsylvania Property Tax program.  The state program provides funds in addition to the Neshaminy rebate program and funds can be received from both.  If you have not filed with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania previously, you should call 1-888-222-9190 to order a form.  This information is intended only to inform you; Neshaminy does not process the Pennsylvania rebates.
