Important Tax collection procedures
Real estate tax bills are mailed annually on or about July 1st. Failure to receive your tax bill does not relieve you from payment or entitle you to a remission of penalty or extention of payment deadlines. If you do not receive a real estate tax bill by July 15th, please call the Tax Office at 717-872-9500.
All tax bills are sent directly to the property owner. Owners are responsible for forwarding the bill to their mortgage company. Please confirm the correct mailing address and payment procedures with your mortgage company prior to forwarding.
You may choose to pay your real estate taxes in full payment or opt in to the district installment plan by making your first installment by August 31. Payments are accepted by mail or at any Fulton Bank as long as you have an original, MICR-encoded tax bill.
You are also able to pay your real-estate taxes by credit card via the internet or telephone through Official Payments Corporation. A convenience fee will be added.
Per capita/occupation taxes were eliminated effective July 1, 2000.
