    Act 72

    The Homeowner's Property Relief Act is commonly called Act 72. Act 72 was designed to provide property tax relief to resident homeowners. The property tax relief is not immediate. It will only occur if the Mountain View School District chooses to participate and the State certifies that it has enough revenue from the yet to be constructed gambling sites to offset the lost local revenue from reduced property taxes. The School Board is working very hard to study the pros and cons of participating in Act 72.

    Earned Income Taxes

    The Mountain View School District is located in Harford Township. The school district has a one-half of one percent (.005) earned income tax and the township has a one-half of one percent (.005) earned income tax. As an employer, the school district deducts one percent (.01) earned income tax from each employee and transmits the tax to Berkheimer Tax Administrator. Berlheimer acts as a clearinghouse sending earned income tax monies to the localities where people reside. If an employee lives in a Pennsylvania locality without an earned income tax or lives out of state, Berkheimer sends the one percent tax to Harford Township. Berkheimer also collects delinquent earned income taxes plus penalties. The phone number for Berkheimer is 1-866-701-7206.
