Pennsylvania Voters Authorize Full Homestead Exclusion

In the November 7, 2017, general election, Pennsylvania voters approved a proposed constitutional amendment to the homestead property tax assessment exclusion, according to unofficial results posted by the Pennsylvania Department of State (DOS). As a result, the General Assembly may enact legislation authorizing local taxing authorities to exclude 100% of the assessed value of homestead property when determining the real estate tax owed for the property. Currently, only a 50% exclusion is allowed.

With 99.21% of districts reporting statewide, 53.98% of voters had approved the measure, according to the DOS.
