The Wilkinsburg Board of School Directors approved a tax ‘Amnesty Program’ for delinquent real estate taxes. The amnesty program will waive the 10 percent tax penalty, 100 percent of the accrued interest, and 50 percent of the outstanding attorney fees when the delinquent real estate tax, remaining attorney fees, and previously incurred costs are paid in full. The program will began May 1, 2013, and will end June 30, 2013.
During the amnesty period, payment programs are not permitted for parcels that wish to take advantage of the amnesty waiver. Parcels currently engaged in a payment program may be granted amnesty for unpaid penalty, interest, and half the outstanding attorney fees when the delinquent real estate tax, remaining half of the attorney fees, and previously incurred costs are paid-in-full by June 30, 2013.
