OWNER-OCCUPIED RESIDENTIAL EXEMPTION -
· On April 3, 2018, Anchorage voters approved an increase in the residential exemption program from 10% to 20% (up to a maximum property valuation exemption of $50,000) for qualified primary residence properties.
· If your primary residence qualified for this exemption in 2017 and the qualification status of your subject property has not changed from one tax year to the next, then you do not need to re-apply to receive this newly increased exemption.
· You must notify the Municipal Assessor’s Office of any change in your original qualification status. See below for additional contact information.
· Any owner of a primary residence who is not currently receiving the Residential Exemption can submit an application to the Municipal Assessor’s Office by no later than March 15 of any given tax year. For additional information, contact the Municipal Assessor’s Office at 343-6770 or visit their website at www,muni.org/pa
