For the past four years, hundreds of property owners in the Kane Area School District have received a discount on their annual school tax bill.
The tax relief is made possible, in part, through the allocation of state gaming revenue from casinos under state "Act 1" of a special state legislative session in 2006.
To qualify for a discount, property owners are required to file a one-time application for a Homestead or Farmstead exclusion.
