York County Extends Personal Property Tax 2% Late Fee Through September 30; 10% late charge delayed until October 1
June 10, 2022
At Tuesday’s (6/7) meeting of the York County Board of Supervisors, County Administrator Neil Morgan outlined efforts to mitigate the increase in personal property tax bills due to the unexpected rise in vehicle values reflected in this year’s assessment.*
The bills are due June 25th with a 2% late payment penalty that would normally increase to 10% starting July 21. The 2% late payment penalty will remain in place through September 30, 2022, giving citizens more time to pay their 1st half 2022 personal property tax bill with the lower penalty.
Also in place is a personal property tax relief program for those most in need. There are specific criteria that are outlined to qualify (available online). This application is being administered by the County’s Department of Community Services and inquiries can be made by calling 757-890-3885 or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Requests for assistance will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
The Board of Supervisors and staff are working to implement additional means of providing relief to County taxpayers that will be effective with the December bills.
You can watch the personal property tax relief discussion from the June 7 meeting posted online at www.yorkcounty.gov/tv. Read the County Administrator’s June 3 memo in the Weekly Correspondence posted on the Board of Supervisor’s website.
All of these resources are available on the County’s “June 2022 Personal Property Tax Relief” website.
