Tax Office

Message from Ruth Neiderer, Tax Collector

The Tax Collector's office is located in the West Manheim township building. I am available Tuesday 9:00 - 5:00 and Thursday 9:00 - 5:00. I do close for lunch from 1:00 to 2:00. The Local Tax Collections Law only requires tax collectors, to be available at least 3 days of each of the last 2 weeks of the discount period. Payments can be made by mail (post mark is accepted), using the township drop box or stopping by during office hours. Please check office notice for additional hours near the deadline periods.

If you have an escrow account which pays your real estate taxes, please check your account to be sure funds have been distributed. The tax bill is the property owner's responsibility. If you receive an interim bill due to additional improvements, please check with your lender to see if they will pay interim bills from your escrow. I would encourage you to check statements to be sure payments have been made.

All current year bills must be paid in full by December 31st. If bills are not paid they will be filed with the Tax Claim Bureau, York County. You will receive a notice from Tax Claim and can establish a payment plan with their office.
