Allegheny County Treasurer John K. Weinstein issued an important reminder Wednesday to county taxpayers of upcoming due dates for 2013 property taxes.
“For the second year in a row, the due dates for county taxes had to be adjusted. I am certain that many taxpayers may not remember that their county property taxes are coming due by months end. In order to save the 2 percent tax discount, taxes must be paid in full and received or postmarked by April 30, 2013," Weinstein stated.
On April 30 the treasurer’s office, room 108 in the Allegheny County Courthouse, will be open till 7:30 p.m. in order to collect taxes at the 2 percent discount.
Other methods to pay county property taxes include paying in person on other weekdays till 4:30 p.m.; pay by mail with the envelope that was provided with the tax bill; or pay via the Internet.
The 2013 County Property Tax Due Dates are:
- 2 percent Discount Period - Ends April 30
- Face or Gross Tax - Ends May 31
- Delinquent Tax Period - Begins June 1
“As the end of the discount period fast approaches, it is very important to remind taxpayers to pay by the end of the month and take advantage of the 2 percent discount to save money," said Weinstein.
