The local tax collector is a municipal officer designated to collect Borough and School District Real Estate Taxes levied under municipal codes. The Borough of East Mckeesport Tax Office collects East Mckeesport Real Estate and East Allegheny School District Real Estate Taxes. Other agencies or departments collect all other taxes, such as wage, county, and refuse.
Allegheny County taxes are mailed in February, East McKeesport Borough bills are sent out April 1 st , and East Allegheny School District tax bills arrive in July. If you or your Mortgage Company do not receive a bill during these periods, Please contact this office. Not receiving a bill does not relieve you of the responsibility of paying your taxes.
All these Real Estate Taxes listed above offer a Discount period of 2% of Face amount if paid within the first two months of issue. If not paid within that period, the Borough and School District Face amount will then be due. If not received during the two month Face period, your taxes are late and a 10% charge will be added. By law, after December 31 st , this office is required to send unpaid Borough and School District taxes to delinquent collections . The current Collection Agency is Keystone Municipal Collections.
The County and Borough also offer a "Senior Citizen Tax Relief Program". There is also a Homestead/Farmstead Exclusion for the County and School Taxes. Since these Programs are offered by the County, and the Borough and School taxes are based on County Assessments, they must be applied for through the County. You can contact the County Treasurers Office at 412.350.4100 or access their web site at www.alleghenycounty.us/treasurer
Tax payments can be made in person at the Tax Office dropped in the mail slot at the Tax Office door or mailed. The payment date is determined by either the date the payment is presented or the postmark on the envelope when mailed. The mail slot at the Tax Office is collected at 9:00am Monday- Friday. If the payment is dropped in the Tax Office mail slot, the payment date will be the previous business day. If you mail or drop you payment off and desire a receipt, please include a self-addressed stamped envelope with the payment.
