The tax process has two parts, assessment and billing, that are handled by two different County offices:
- The Commissioner of the Revenue assesses real estate and personal property, determines eligibility for tax relief and processes state tax returns.
- The Treasurer collects Westmoreland County real estate and personal property taxes.
How Taxes Are Assessed
The Commissioner of the Revenue assesses real estate and personal property taxes as of January 1 of each year. If you have a question about the assessed value of your real estate or personal property, contact the Commissioner of the Revenue.
How Taxes Are Billed
The Treasurer applies the applicable tax rate to the assessment and mails your tax bills the following September. Payment is due by December 5.
If you have questions about the amount of your tax bill or outstanding balance, view your account or contact the Treasurer.
