In 2022, ACT 57 was signed into law amending the Pennsylvania Local Tax Collection Law. This Act authorizes the waiver of certain charges and penalties for taxpayers' late payment of the face amount of real estate taxes, in prescribed circumstances. This act applies to taxes assessed on or after January 1st, 2023.
Please fill out and follow the instructions in the Request for Waiver of Additional Charges. No waiver will be granted unless all five items are checked off, all required supporting documents are attached, and full payment of the face value amount of the tax is attached. If the application is not completed in its entirety, the application will be returned.
Copies of deeds can be purchased at the Recorder of Deeds' office.
Requests for Waiver of Additional Charges should be submitted to the tax collector during the current year. Once your tax bill is delinquent, your request will be submitted to the delinquent tax collector.
If your application is not submitted within 12 months of a "qualifying event," you will be responsible for all interest, penalties and costs.
