The Township of Hampton Council and the Hampton Township School Board each adopt a real estate tax rate in December of each year for the upcoming fiscal year. This rate is a percentage of the property's fair market value as determined by the Allegnehy County Board of Assessment Appeals and Review assessors and is collected by Jordan Tax Service from May through August of each year. A penalty of 10% is assessed to owners who do not pay property taxes by the due date each year. Failure to pay could result in forfeiture of property.
Bills are mailed to the owner's last known address. It is the taxpayer's responsibility to keep Jordan Tax Service and Allegheny County informed about current billing information. Failure to receive a bill does not relieve the taxpayer of responsibility for paying it. Many homeowners pay monthly installments for taxes to their mortgage company, which keeps these monies in an escrow account from which they pay the taxes when due. Tax bills are mailed to the mortgage companies in these cases.
