The Tax Assessment department also reviews and approves applications for enrollment in Act 319, the preferential assessment program. Act 319, also known as the Clean and Green Act, permits the County Assessment Office to provide a reduced assessment on eligible agricultural and woodland properties. Application forms are available in the Assessment Office, however the instructions are available online. The yearly deadline for filing applications for the following year is June 1.
The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture provides additional information about how the program works.
