Information about prepayment of 2018 taxes

Date: December 27, 2017

For those aware of the new federal tax bill in Congress that appears to become law, some Township residents have asked the Ferguson Township Finance Department whether they can prepay state and local taxes before the end of this year.

Residents may pay in advance for income taxes. State taxes are collected by the PA Department of Revenue and the Borough of State College collects local taxes.

However, municipalities cannot accept prepaid real estate taxes.  The tax amounts are not determined until March 2018 for the Township and July 2018 for the school district. Exact payment is required.

Thank you for your interest.
