Allegheny County Government - Property and Real Estate Information - Property Tax Relief for Seniors
Entitles qualified senior citizen homeowners to a flat 30% discount on the real estate tax on their primary residence.

Flat 30% discount of the real property tax on their primary residence for each year you are eligible. Additionally, receive the 2% discount by paying your county taxes in full by April 30th. You may also choose the installment option which allows eligible taxpayers to pay their GROSS county taxes in two equal installment payments, with the first payment due by April 30th and the second by September 30th.

Once approved, you DO NOT need to apply again. You will continue to receive tax relief as long as you are the property owner/occupant and your household income does not exceed $30,000.
