Dauphin County Commissioners Extend Interest-Free Grace Period for Property Owners with Delinquent Taxes


Dauphin County Commissioners Mike Pries, Chad Saylor, and George P. Hartwick, III are extending an interest-free grace period to all property owners with 2021 delinquent property taxes. Property owners now have until April 1, 2022, to pay their taxes in full and take advantage of the program.

“We recognize the hardships caused by COVID-19 are ongoing, so we are extending the interest-free grace period to help property owners who may be struggling,” said Commissioner Hartwick, who oversees the county’s Tax Claim Bureau.

Approximately 8,900 first-class letters, which included a breakdown of taxes owed and costs for properties, were mailed this week to property owners with unpaid 2021 real property taxes.

“We encourage taxpayers to take advantage of this extended grace period,” Commissioner Pries said.

“We will continue to look for ways to accommodate residents that are struggling,” Commissioner Saylor said.
