The discount period for paying your County/Municipal Real Estate tax bill is fast approaching! After April 30, we will be in the “face” period and the 2% discount will no longer apply. Tax payments may be mailed to Sharon Shipman, Tax Collector, 275 Cumberland Parkway, #325, Mechanicsburg 17055, dropped off at the box outside the main entrance to the Township building after hours, dropped in the box inside the main entrance during business hours, or paid in person at the Tax Office window Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
If you have not received a bill, please contact me in the office and I can provide you with a copy. While I can be reached at 717-766-4238, the quickest and most efficient way to contact me is by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I may not always be able to answer the phone, but I frequently check my emails and can quickly scan and email copies of bills, receipts, forms, etc. for quick turnaround.
Remember that failure to receive a bill does not excuse you from the obligation to pay your taxes!
County/Municipal Real Estate tax due dates are as follows:
- Discount period – March 1 thru April 30 (2% discount)
- Face period – May 1 thru June 30
- Penalty period – July 1 thru December 31 (10% penalty)
- After December 31, unpaid taxes are turned over to the Cumberland County Tax Claim Bureau for collection. Please note that interest and additional fees are added when it reaches this point.
