Tax office clarifies intent of mailed notice

Date: November 14, 2018

The Ferguson Township Tax Office was required to mail a notice on November 6 to anyone who owes real estate taxes for 2018 — reminding them that their final payment is due. 

Pennsylvania law requires the tax office to use bold-faced, 16-point, all caps language notifying taxpayers whose taxes remain outstanding — even installment payers — that their taxes have not been paid on time.

Be assured, the Ferguson Township Tax Office is aware that the final installment is not due until December 1, and therefore is not late.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Tax Office for assistance at (814) 238-4651.

Thank you.
