The Mechanicsburg Area School district is trying to retain residents by offering some of them a property tax rebate.
The district introduced the program last year, issuing more than $31,000 in rebates to 98 taxpayers.
Applicants must be 75 years or older, have a household income of $35,000 or lest, and be eligible for a similar state grant.
The rebate offers a break to older residents on fixed incomes.
“There’s a lot of tradition in this community and we understand that people who are on fixed incomes want to stay in our school district and we want to support them to stay here,” said Dr. Mark Leidy, Superintendent for Mechanicsburg Area School District.
Most rebated are a few hundred dollars.
