    Program Information

    Rebate Application

    At the June 20, 2023 action meeting, the Hatboro-Horsham School District (HHSD) Board of Directors unanimously approved a tax rebate for property that could see a discount of up to $325.00 per resident.   This program is being offered by the HHSD in addition to the Pennsylvania Property Tax and Rent Rebate Program. 

    To qualify for this discount-refund, applicants must have completed and received a refund from the Pennsylvania Property Tax and Rent Rebate Program.   To qualify, applicants must have a household income of no more than $35,000 annually, and:

    • be 65 years of age or older: or
    • be a widow or widower aged 50 years of age or older; or
    • be permanently disabled and 18 years of age or older.

    The property tax and rent rebate program is based upon the existing Pennsylvania Property Tax and Rent Rebate program which has been in effect since 1971 and is funded by the state lottery and slot machine proceeds.  Hatboro-Horsham residents must qualify for the state rebate program to qualify for the district rebate program.
