Installment Due Dates

Each year (usually in December) the Beaver Area Board of School Directors will approve a resolution regarding the tax collection and school property tax installment payments as required by Act 1. These payments are due in equal installments on July 31st, September 30th, November 30 and January 31st. The equal installments are calculated using the face amount. Taxpayers who choose to pay in installments DO NOT qualify for the 2% discount.

Property Tax Relief Programs

  1. Homestead/Farmstead Exemption
    Property tax bills will be reduced for qualified homeowners in the district under the homestead/farmstead property tax relief program. This program is funded through the distribution of a portion of gaming funds provided from taxes on the slots and casinos throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. This property tax reduction will only occur if the Commonwealth can distribute the necessary amount of gaming funds.

NOTE: The tax reduction will not be distributed as a check, it will appear as a reduced assessment line item thus reducing the tax due directly on the property tax bills.

To qualify, the property must be an owner-occupied residence and the property owner must have filed and received approval via a homestead exemption application with Beaver County by March 1. To obtain an application, please visit the Beaver County website for the link to the Homestead exemption application:

Local Earned Income Tax 

The school district’s earned income tax collector is Berkheimer Tax Innovations.

Berkheimer Tax Innovations

Pen Argyl, PA 18072

All monies collected from earned income taxes are equally shared between the school district and the municipality in which the taxpayer resides.

Under Pennsylvania Act 32, effective January 2012, all Pennsylvania employers must withhold earned income taxes for their employees. The employee should complete a certificate of residency form. This form will determine the Political Subdivision Code (PSD) of the municipality where the individual resides. To obtain a form, contact the Department of Community and Economic Development at 1-888-223-6837 or by visiting: 
Act 32 | Local Income Tax | PSD Codes and EIT Rates ( 

In addition, any district resident who owns a business (unincorporated in nature), regardless of location, must pay 1 percent of the net profits. Self-employed persons should contact Berkheimer to set-up an account and make quarterly payments.

For further explanation of earned income, net profits and what types of income qualify or are exempt, contact Berkheimer or visit them at
