Property owners must pay their Real Estate Tax on time. But in Philadelphia, paying early will save you money. When you pay your Real Estate Tax bill before the last day in February, you get a 1% discount.
We’re in a leap year and February 29 falls on a Saturday. That means that this year you have until March 2 to leap into savings!
All Real Estate Taxes are due on March 31, 2020. If you pay after the deadline, you will face interest and penalties.
There are many, convenient ways to pay:
- Online – Pay with eCheck (FREE); debit or credit card (fees apply),
- By calling (877) 309-3710 – Pay with eCheck (FREE); debit or credit card (fees apply),
- By mailing a check or money order to:
Department of Revenue
P.O. Box 8409
Philadelphia, PA 19101-8409
- In person, at one of our three payment centers.

Late payments will result in a bill increase of 1.5% each month.
If you don’t pay by January 1, 2021, interest and charges will build on your balance, and the City will put a lien on your property. You could also damage your credit and eventually lose your home.
You could be eligible for property tax relief programs including:
- The Homestead Exemption.
- The Senior Citizens Real Estate Tax Freeze.
- The Owner-occupied Real Estate Tax payment agreement (OOPA)
- A payment plan for a property you don’t live in.
