Real Estate Tax Discount Extension for 2020

As presented in Resolution No. 72-2020, the City of Reading has decided to extend the 2% discount period for the 2020 Real Estate Tax through August 31, 2020.

In order to receive the 2% discount rate for the city portion of the real estate tax bill, the bill must be paid in the full FLAT amount as it appears on the bill. Upon confirmation of funds clearing the financial institution, the City of Reading will begin processing the appropriate refund of the 2% discount to the property owner listed on the bill at the mailing address listed on the bill. Refunds will be processed automatically on any discount amount $5.00 and over.

YOU MUST APPLY TO THE CITY, IN WRITING, FOR YOUR REBATE, IF IT IS UNDER THE $5.00 LIMIT.

Please note: bills are not considered paid until funds clear the financial institution. Questions regarding this policy should be directed to CSC@readingpa.gov or 877 727 3234, at the City of Reading.
