A Reminder to County Taxpayers: Treasurer Weinstein issues reminder of discount

Keeps office open late on April 30

PITTSBURGH, PA - Allegheny County Treasurer John K. Weinstein issued an important reminder 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% tax discount, taxes must be paid in full and received or postmarked by April 30, 2013”, said Treasurer Weinstein.

On April 30 the County Treasurer’s Office, Room 108 in the County Courthouse, will be open till 7:30 P.M. in order to collect taxes at the 2% 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 their tax bill; or pay via the internet by visiting www.alleghenycounty.us/treasurer and clicking on “online property tax payment”.

The 2013 County Property Tax Due Dates are: 

2% Discount Period -Ends-  April 30 
Face or Gross Tax Period    -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% discount to save money”, said Weinstein.
