The Fox Chapel Area School District comprises six municipalities: Aspinwall, Blawnox, Fox Chapel, Indiana Township, O'Hara Township, and Sharpsburg. Of those six municipalities, four have elected tax collectors (Aspinwall, Blawnox, Indiana Township, and Sharpsburg). Jordan Tax Services handles billing and collections for both O'Hara Township and Fox Chapel. The district is currently under agreement with Jordan Tax Services through 2021. The four elected tax collectors follow elected term limits and are recognized by the board annually. There are resolutions in regards to compensation for these tax collectors. The current resolution runs though 2021-2022.School tax bills are mailed to residents every July 1. All taxes are generally due by November 30, including those paid via payment plans. There are discounts for tax bills paid within two months of invoice, and penalties are added if taxes are paid after four months of invoice. Tax collectors stop collecting at the end of December. The tax collectors "close their books" at that time and must turn over all reports and ledgers to the district, including all delinquent accounts. The district then "exonerates" the tax collectors from their duties for that tax year, and all of their delinquent rolls are turned over to PA Del Tax, effective January. The delinquent tax collector then assumes the task of seeking the tax payments on those accounts. The collector maintains those rolls for the period of one year (January through December). After one year, any accounts still delinquent are then turned over to the solicitor's office, which then proceeds with legal ramifications, such as sheriff sales.
PA Del Tax - Delinquent Tax CollectorPA Del Tax is annually reappointed as the delinquent tax collector for the district. PA Del Tax is paid a commission based on the collections. PA Del Tax submits a check to the district monthly with that month's collection amount and deducts its commission from that amount. PA Del Tax is paid a 5% commission on delinquent collections from January through August and a 2% commission for collections from September to December. The lower percentage that begins in September is because at that time, the accounts have been delinquent for more than one year from the original tax bill date. They are considered "solicitor accounts" but are kept on PA Del Tax's rolls to complete the calendar year.
