Tax Collection

There are three taxing bodies that levy a property tax in every Borough, City, or Township in Pennsylvania.  These taxing bodies include:  the local municipality (Borough of Mt. Oliver), the school district (Pittsburgh Public School District), and the County (Allegheny County).

The Borough’s elected Tax Collector is responsible for collecting the property taxes in Mt. Oliver Borough.

Due Dates
Borough property taxes are due before July 1. If you pay before April 30, you will receive a 2% discount. If paid after July 1, the Borough will levy a 10% penalty for late payment.

Tax Rate
The Borough’s property tax rate, or millage rate, is set by Borough Council from year to year.  The current millage rate is 13.5 mills, which has remained unchanged since 2006.

For the median assessed property value in Mt. Oliver ($38,300), a 13.5 mill tax rate means an average tax bill of $517.  Alternatively, a property assessed at $100,000 would have a tax bill of $1,350.

Payment Options
• Check, cash, or money order in-person during regular business hours.
• Mail a check or money order.

Delinquent Property Taxes
At the end of the fiscal year (December 31), the Tax Collector is exonerated of all Borough property taxes and the balances are then transferred to Keystone Collections, the Borough’s appointed Delinquent Tax Collector, where additional fees are incurred.

If you do not pay your taxes, a lien will be placed against your property.  At the very least, the taxes plus accrued penalties and interested must be paid before the house can be sold or transferred to new ownership. The property could also be brought to tax sale.
