A "homestead exemption" is one of the relief measures being discussed as part of the administration's proposed Actual Value Inititiative (AVI).  The amount of the exemption currently being considered is $30,000.  If your house is worth $100,000, this means you would pay taxes on $70,000 ($100,000-$30,000).  State legislation is needed for a homestead exemption.  There is pending legsilation in Harrisburg to allow City Council to implement such an exemption.  Because of the administration's proposed timeframe for AVI, homestead exemption applications are due by July 31, 2012.

"We have worked together to bring the City back from very very troubling and challenging times... We may not always agree on each and every issue, but I know that from my time as a member of City Council I from time to time had different thoughts and ideas from former Mayor Rendell and that never got in the way of us getting business done. That's the kind of relationship I want to have." - Mayor Nutter.
