Councilman Brian O’Neill’s legislation to increase the homestead exemption has passed unanimously in City Council. As a result, the homestead exemption will increase by 12.5% from $40,000.00 to $45,000.00.

Under the new $45,000 exemption, over 30,000 enrolled owner-occupants in his district will now save a total of $629.00 annually.

To enroll in the homestead exemption or if you have any questions about the program, please call or visit one of Councilman O’Neill’s five full-time offices: Bustleton & Bowler above the 7th Police District (215-685-0432); FOP Lodge #5 Headquarters at 11630 Caroline Road (215-437-9167); Rhawnhurst at 7522 Castor Avenue (215-685-0438); Fox Chase at 432 Rhawn Street (215-685-6431); City Hall (215-686-3422).
