After receiving many questions and concerns relating to school district property taxes, I wanted to take the opportunity to offer some helpful information to explain how school district real estate taxes are determined, provide information on state programs to ease the burden of school district real estate taxes for eligible residents, and highlight legislative proposals.

First and foremost, property taxes fall under the jurisdiction of your local governments, specifically your county, municipality and school district.

Property taxes continue to be a primary source of funding for these governments, as this tax is the only tax authorized by law to be levied by all three, where every property owner pays tax to each, unless otherwise exempted.

It is important to note that a tax on property is not levied by the Commonwealth, nor is it mandated on local taxing districts; rather, the decision is made separately, and independently, by local elected officials, with the General Assembly establishing certain parameters.
