Senior Citizen Tax Relief

The Borough of Sewickley offers real estate tax relief to Senior Citizens who have met all conditions of the Allegheny County Real Estate Tax Relief Program. Once approved, the resident will automatically qualify to participate in the Sewickley Borough Real Estate Tax Relief Program.

This program entitles all qualified applicants in the Borough of Sewickley to a flat 25% discount of the real estate tax on their primary residence for each year they are eligible.

Once approved, a qualified applicant continues to receive tax relief from the Borough as long as the applicant is the property owner/occupant, and the household income does not exceed $30,000. Applicants are no longer required to file annually.

To qualify for the County program, the applicant must meet all three requirements:

  1. Property Ownership: Must have owned and occupied a primary residence in Allegheny County continuously for the past 10 years. A property owner who has moved within the past 10 years, and has continued to own and occupy the new property as a primary residence shall be eligible.
  2. Age:
    • Must be age 60 or older, or if married either spouse must be age 60.
    • Be a widow or widower age 50 to 60 years.
    • Permanently disabled and age 18 to 60 years.
    • The applicant must meet the required age by December 31, 2017, to qualify for tax relief in 2017.
  3. Income:
    • Gross household income must be $30,000 or less. For calculating income use only 50% of your Social Security Benefit, SSI, and Railroad Retirement Tier 1 Benefits (except Medicare benefits).

The County program entitles all qualified applicants in Allegheny County to a flat 30% discount of the real estate tax on their primary residence for each year they are eligible. Qualified applicants will also receive an additional 2% discount by paying their county taxes in full by March 31st. A second payment option allows eligible taxpayers (if they choose) to pay their gross county taxes in two equal installment payments, the first payment due by April 30th and the second payment by September 30th.

Once approved, a qualified applicant continues to receive tax relief as long as applicant is the property owner/occupant, and the household income does not exceed $30,000. Applicants are no longer required to file annually.

The deadline to file for relief in 2017 is June 30, 2017.
