Other Information

  • If you are a Bethel Park Homeowner who has not completed a Homestead/Farmstead application, we encourage you to do so.  If you have previously completed an application, you do not need to so again.   Homeowners who completed their application will see a $166.09 reduction on their 2018-2019 school property tax bill.  If you haven't filled out an application, it is too late to receive the reduction for this school year, but if you fill out a form, you will be eligible for a Homestead/Farmstead Exemption next year.  To learn more and to download an application, please click here.
