Board Approves Act 1 Index & Rebate Program

Plus, Details on Upcoming Meetings
Tax Rebate Available
The Pine-Richland School Board approved a senior citizen tax rebate for senior citizens, who live in the Township of Pine or Richland Township at its board meeting on January 11, 2021.
The program, which is effective for the calendar year of 2020, stipulates that the filer must be a resident of Pine Township or Richland Township for all of 2020, have owned a home in Pine or Richland Township for all of 2020, and used it as his or her primary residence. The granting of the Homestead exemption by Allegheny County will be used to determine whether a residence is a filer's primary residence. The filer must be classified as a senior citizen, widow, or widower.
The submission deadline is June 30, 2021. You can review the qualifications, the packet, and more information by visiting the website.

Board Approves Resolution
The board approved a resolution pursuant to Section 311(d)(1) Special Session Act of 2006 certifying the Pine-Richland School Board will not raise local taxes at a rate to exceed the school district's Act 1 index of 3% for 2021-2022. The purpose of this resolution is to allow the school district to continue through the general fund budget preparation process for 2021-2022. 
This resolution states the school board is not planning to raise the real estate tax rate for the next fiscal year beyond the approved Act 1 index for the Pine-Richland School District. 
The school board may approve a tax increase up to 3% but not exceed this percentage.
