Tax Payment Info

All original tax bills are mailed to the last known post office address of each taxpayer as provided by the Chester County Assessment Office. If your mortgage company is paying your taxes from an escrow account, please make a copy of the bill for your records and forward the entire original bill to your mortgage company.

When making payment, write the bill number on your check or money order and include the appropriate bill stub. If you want a receipt, enclose a self-addressed, stamped envelope with your payment. There is a $25 return check fee.

Payments must be postmarked or processed by the bank by the due date. Postage meter stamps are not accepted unless canceled by the US Postal Service. Incorrect payment amounts, partial payments, incomplete checks, or postdated checks will not be accepted. The bank will not process checks when the amount written in words on the legal line is incorrect.

No payments will be accepted after December 31. All unpaid taxes will be turned over to the Chester County Tax Claim Bureau (610.344.6360). Unpaid taxes will be subject to penalty, interest, and filing fees.

Annual Real Estate Tax Due Dates

The taxpayer has the option to pay the taxes due as a single payment or in three installments by the following due dates:

SINGLE PAYMENT
Discount Amount (face minus 2%) on or before August 31

Face Amount on or before October 31

Penalty Amount (face plus 10%) after October 31

INSTALLMENT PAYMENTS
An installment payment option is available for all properties. Installments are divided into three equal payments based on the face amount due. Discounts are not allowed on installment payments.

1st installment on or before August 31

2nd installment on or before September 30

3rd installment on or before October 31

If the 1st installment is not received by the due date of August 31, you will not be eligible for the installment option and must use the single payment option. A 10% penalty will be charged on late payment of the 2nd and 3rd installments. Installment payments must be made in order. That is, the 2nd installment will not be accepted unless the 1st has been paid, and the 3rd installment will not be accepted until the 1st and 2nd have been paid.
