PITTSBURGH, PA (February 3, 2015) - Mayor William Peduto expressed strong support today for a resolution that will extend the 2% Real Estate Tax discount deadline from February 10 to February 28, 2015. The resolution was offered by Councilman Dan Gilman.
“Real Estate Tax is often a large payment for homeowners and I support giving them more time to plan for and pay those taxes under our discount program,” said Mayor Peduto.
The February 10 deadline was the discount deadline issued in the original City Council Ordinance for Real Estate Taxes in 2015. A delay with tax calculations related to tax abatements resulted in bills being issued later than anticipated on January 28. Because of the delay in issuing the bills, this deadline will also be extended. Extending the 2% discount deadline is not anticipated to have a negative impact on tax collections.
The City Finance Department collects taxes for both the City of Pittsburgh and the Pittsburgh School District.
Pittsburgh taxpayers can also take advantage of an option to pay city and school taxes over three payments. With this payment option, the 2% discount will apply only to the first installment if it is paid by February 28, 2015.
