Property certified as tax exempt; effective date of tax exemption. Provides that once the required certification for tax exemption is made by a state or local authority for pollution control equipment and other real and personal property that is required to be certified in order to be exempt, such property will be deemed to be exempt as of the date the property is placed in service. Current law requires that certain pollution control, recycling, and solar energy real and personal property placed in service must be certified as being used primarily for the purpose of abating or preventing pollution of the atmosphere or waters of the Commonwealth in order to be exempt from local property taxes but does not specify the beginning date for the exemption.
