HOMESTEAD EXCLUSION ABATEMENTS:
- County Homestead/Farmstead Exclusion (Act 50)
- North Allegheny School District Property Tax Relief (Act 1)
North allegheny school district installment plan
Act 1 of 2006, the Taxpayer Relief Act, requires that all school districts in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, with the exception of Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and Scranton, permit the collection and payment of current school real estate property taxes in installments, effective July 1, 2007. By law, the plan must be available only to taxpayers that have applied for and been granted a homestead/farmstead exclusion by Allegheny County. On June 27, 2007, the North Allegheny School District Board of Directors approved a resolution granting the establishment of an installment payment plan in three payments. The specific terms of the plan are as follows:
- The plan applies only to taxpayers that have been granted a homestead/farmstead exclusion under Act 1. If you have already been approved by the Allegheny County Office of Property Assessments under Act 50, your tax bill will include a line showing the initial payment that is due under the installment plan. If you want to apply for a homestead/farmstead exclusion, please contact the Office of Property Assessments for further information.
- To choose the payment plan option, you need only pay the first installment by the due date of August 31. Payments received after August 31 will be considered timely only if they contain an official U.S. Postal Service postmark of August 31 or earlier. If the first payment is late, you will be disqualified from the installment program, and you will be subject to payment of your entire tax bill in full subject to the standard deadlines and terms.
- Once you have made a timely first payment, you will be sent two additional billing notices with the due dates of October 31 and December 31. Payments received after either of these due dates, subject again to the official postmark, will be charged a penalty of 10%. If your payment is more than 10 days late for either of these installments, or if your payments for both of these installments are late for any period of time, then you will not be eligible for the installment plan the following year.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Charles Carey at (724)772.2470.
north allegheny per capita tax
North Allegheny School District imposes a Per Capita Tax. This tax applies to all residents, age 21 and over, employed or not employed, who reside in the District for any part of the fiscal year. The tax appears on the school real estate tax bill as "Per Capita", as a separate line item.
The rate is $10 per person, per fiscal year (July through June).
The tax will be included on your Real Estate Tax bill if you own and occupy a home in the Township. Renters will receive a separate billing in July.
real estate checklist
When paying taxes, especially when choosing to pay close to deadlines, it is imperative to make sure:
- Check is NOT post-dated.
- Check is signed.
- Amount paid is correct and located in the TOTAL DUE BOX. For the school district this means including the per capita amount.
Failure to provide any of the above could result in the payment being returned and loosing either the discount or face amount.
- The Real Estate Tax Collector cannot accept post dated checks.
- The Real Estate Tax Collector does not determine the "Full Market Value" of your property. Contact Allegheny County Assessment Department at 412-350-4600 with any questions.
- If you have refinanced your mortgage and have an escrow account with a different bank or mortgage company, please notify the Tax Office so your tax statements can be redirected.
- If you do not have an escrow account, as the homeowner you are responsible for paying the real estate taxes.
- If you do not receive a tax bill, you are responsible for calling or stopping into the tax office and obtaining one. Failure to receive a tax notice does not relieve any taxpayer from liability for prompt payment of taxes.
- If the billing address for your real estate tax bill has changed after January 1 of this year, due to refinancing, no or paid off escrow, etc., please notify the tax office of the change.
