How Act 1 of the Pennsylvania Taxpayer Relief Act of 2006 is supposed to provide property tax relief.

This act is supposed to provide much needed property tax relief to each residential property owner in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

  • Act 1 is to guarantee property tax relief to every residential homeowner in every school district. With the exception of Philadelphia, where the funding provided by Act 1 will reduce the wage tax instead.

  • Act 1 is to provide taxpayers in every school district from excessive tax increases. By requiring voter approval for these tax increases the voter will have the final say whether taxes are increased or not. School districts will also have measures built in to raise taxes if needed.

  • Act 1 expands the state Property Tax and Rent Rebate Program thus providing extra tax relief to senior citizens.

  • Act 1 allows local communities new taxing options to fund schools.

  • Act 1 also requires all school districts to adopt a resolution allowing property taxes to be paid in installments. Philadelphia and Pittsburgh are excluded



    Funding for Act 1, also known as SS Act 1, is to come from the 34% tax on slot machine revenue. For complete information about Act 1 visit the Pennsylvania Department of Education website link at
