The Assessment Office carries the responsibility for creating and maintaining values for all properties in the County based on the rules and regulations of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

The Homeowner Tax Relief Act, Act 72 of 2004, was signed into law by Governor Rendell on July 5, 2004, to allow school districts to reduce property taxes through homestead and farmstead exclusions.

Property tax relief is funded by a combination of state revenue from gaming and dedicated local income taxes. Under a homestead or a farmstead property tax exclusion, the assessed value of each homestead or farmstead is reduced by the same amount before the property tax is computed. In addition, some school boards may choose not to adopt the homestead and farmstead exclusions.
