Tax Reform - Act 1
The state-funded tax relief available for Southern York County School District is $1,062,831. This money will be distributed to all approved homestead and farmstead properties through a tax assessment exclusion on the July 1, 2018 real estate tax bills. The amount of the reduction has declined from 2008-09 when it was $185.02, to the calculated rate of $178.29 for 2018-19.
The July 1, 2018 real estate tax bills will show a separate line item for this reduction for properties approved as a homestead or farmstead. This money is a reduction in the tax bill, not paid as a rebate check. Please contact the District (717-235-4811, ext. 7300) with any questions.
