Payments must be made payable to:  Jersey Shore Area School District, 175 A&P Drive, Jersey Shore PA 17740 and can either be mailed or placed in the mail slot any time of day.  Payments will not be accepted at the bank.  Click here for FAQs and further explanation of Interim tax bills.

Property Tax Exemption for Veterans

Pennsylvania Veterans may be fully exempt from property taxes on their primary residence if the Veteran has a disability rating of 100% due to service-related causes. To receive the exemption, Veterans must show financial need. Those with an annual income below $108,046 are given a presumption of need for the exemption. Veterans with a gross annual income above $108,046 are considered to have a financial need for the exemption when their monthly expenses are more than their monthly household income.  Click here for exemption requirements.
