NOTICE: Highlands School District Property tax deadlines have been extended.
At its public meeting of August 17, 2020, the Board of School Directors of the Highlands School District approved extending the discount period for payment of your 2020 school district real estate taxes to September 30, 2020. In addition, 2020 school real estate taxes will be due at face on or before December 31, 2020. 2020 school real estate taxes due and owing after December 31, 2020 will be deemed delinquent and subject to a penalty of ten (10%) percent thereafter.
As a separate reminder, if your taxes are paid through your mortgage’s escrow and you pay off your mortgage, it is your responsibility to notify the Allegheny County Tax Assessment Office in order for your tax bills to be sent directly to you instead of the mortgage company. Often, the mortgage company does not notify the County that your mortgage is paid in full. Therefore, subsequent tax bills will not be sent to your home address, which may cause you to miss due dates and receive delinquent penalties.
