Property Tax Reduction Payments
The figures supplied on the following pages include the Education Tax Reduction Payments as well as any Homeowner Rebate payments made to taxpayers in the municipality. These payments are applied for with personal income tax returns for tax year 2008 and the required filing of homestead declarations. The School Tax Adjustment column shows the total amount of school tax adjustment received by eligible taxpayers in town. If there were fewer than three taxpayers who received either a Homeowner Rebate and/or an Education Tax Reduction Payment the numbers are not shown for that municipality.
Education Tax Reduction Payments are an integral part of the Act 60/Act 68 homestead property tax adjustments. Based on the Property Tax Reduction form filed each year by the taxpayers, eligible taxpayers receive payments 30 days prior to the municipalities tax due date.
