Instructions for paying property tax
Property tax bills are mailed to all property owners (or their mortgage companies) on July 1 of every year. The yellow bill is for Carnegie Borough and the white bill is for Carlynton School District.

In the upper right-hand corner of each bill you will see three amounts. Your options are as follows:

  • 2% Discount – Paying early earns you a 2% discount if the bill is paid on or before August 31. Checks must be both made out correctly AND envelopes postmarked by August 31 in order to qualify for Discount.
  • Face Tax – “Face” is the actual amount of tax owed without discount. Checks must be both made out correctly AND envelopes postmarked by October 31 in order to qualify for Face.
  • 10% Penalty – If your tax bill is paid after October 31 a 10% penalty is assessed. The penalty period ends December 31 after which the tax bill is considered delinquent and is turned over to Jordan Tax Service for collection. JTS will add further interest and fees.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. When do the new assessments take effect?
A. The new assessments will be used to calculate property taxes starting in 2013.

Q. How much will my taxes be next year?
A. Millage rates may vary slightly from year to year. The Borough sets its millage rate in December or January, and the School District sets its millage rate in May or June. Once the millage rates have been announced, tax bills are calculated by multiplying assessed value times millage. To figure out how much your taxes will be, multiply the assessed value of your property times the millage rate. As an example, for a house valued at $100,000 that is being taxed at 6.75 mils, multiply 100,000 times .00675 to figure out the tax amount (in this example, $675.00). If the house is being taxed at 20.584 mils, multiply 100,000 times .020584 to figure out the tax amount (in this case, $2,058.40).

Q. I need a copy of my Borough and School tax receipts.
A. Mail your request with a self-addressed stamped envelope to: Margaret G. Bowman, Tax Collector / 1 Veterans Way / Carnegie, PA 15106
