Avonworth Real Estate Taxes Due as follows:

Discount – August 31

Face – October 31

10% Penalty added – November 1

 

Installment Due Dates:

The Board of School Directors approved a resolution regarding the collection and payment of school real property taxes in installments as required by ACT 1. It should be noted that payment of school real property taxes in the installments negates the 2% discount for early payment. It is advised that all residents calculate the loss of the 2% discount vs. the acceptance of installment tax payments. These payments will be due in equal installments on August 31st, October 31st, December 31st.

 

Homestead Credit:

Property tax bills for 2015-16 will be reduced by $79.70 for qualified homeowners in the District under the ACT 1 Homestead Exemption program. This program is made possible through the distribution of a portion of gaming funds provided from taxes on the slots casinos throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

 

To qualify, the property must be an owner-occupied residence and the property owner must have filed and received approval via a homestead exemption application with Allegheny County by March 1st of each year. To check the homestead exemption status of your property, visit the Allegheny County website http://www2county.allegheny.pa.us/RealEstate/Search.asp.

 

Please visit the Allegheny County website for the link to the Homestead exemption application:

The tax reduction will not be distributed as a check, it will appear as a reduced assessment line item on property tax bills.
