IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING 2016 COUNTY BORO TAX BILL
2016 Tax bills were mailed out on February 24, 2016. Unfortunately the mailing service company that is used inadvertently inserted the wrong reply envelope in some of the bills. The mailing company made a second mailing yesterday to all taxpayers advising of their error, they have also provided a plain window envelope to submit your payments. Not all taxpayers received the incorrect return envelope and it they cannot be certain who were mailed the incorrect one. The incorrect envelope has mail being directed to a Lockbox in Philadelphia (Pennsylvania & Indiana Lumbermens Insurance Company). If you did not notice if you were using an incorrect envelope, please contact me immediately (firstname.lastname@example.org) to see that your payment was in fact received by me.
