A "homestead exemption" is one of the relief measures being discussed as part of the administration's proposed Actual Value Inititiative (AVI).  The amount of the exemption currently being considered is $30,000.  If your house is worth $100,000, this means you would pay taxes on $70,000 ($100,000-$30,000).  State legislation is needed for a homestead exemption.  There is pending legsilation in Harrisburg to allow City Council to implement such an exemption.  Because of the administration's proposed timeframe for AVI, homestead exemption applications are due by July 31, 2012.
