IF A BANK OR MORTGAGE COMPANY ESCROWS YOUR TAX MONEY, PLEASE FORWARD A COPY OF YOUR TAX BILL TO THEM IMMEDIATELY.
To earn discounts or avoid penalty, payments must be postmarked by the U.S. Postal Service on or before the payment due dates as shown on the bill.
If a receipt is desired, you must return both copies of the tax bill with a self-addressed stamped envelope.
Real Estate Taxes, referred to as property taxes, are levied on all residential, commercial, industrial, and other non-exempt real estate by three separate governmental entities:
- Allegheny County
- Borough of Green Tree
- Keystone Oaks School District
The taxes are calculated as the product of two factors; the assessed value of the property (assessed value is set by Allegheny County), and the millage rate. The assessed value is 100% of the market value of the property. The millage rates are set yearly by each of the three taxing jurisdictions and can be found on Allegheny County’s website. A mill is 1/1000 of a dollar of total assessed property value in the Borough.
