Delinquent Real Estate Taxes
Law Firm to Collect Delinquent Real Estate Taxes:
Abington Heights School District has hired Portnoff Law Associates, Ltd., to collect its delinquent real estate taxes. Each delinquent property owner will receive a notice advising him or her of the balance due. Attached to the notice will be a schedule of legal fees that Portnoff Law Associates will potentially assess against the property, if the property owner fails to respond to the notice. Recipients of the notice will be afforded a thirty (30)-day grace period within which to make payment arrangements. By placement of a toll-free telephone call, property owners with large accounts will be permitted to enter into payment arrangements of up to six (6) months. Those with legitimate hardship situations will be permitted longer term payment plans. After the grace period ends, Portnoff Law Associates, Ltd., will proceed with legal action on the unresolved accounts. Delinquent property owners who have failed to make payment arrangements or request hardship accommodations will be assessed the legal fees and costs associated with collecting on their accounts. The School District urges property owners to call the toll-free number listed on the delinquency notice within the thirty (30)-day grace period to avoid legal fees. It is the position of the School District that this is by far the fairest and most efficient method of collecting delinquent bills.
The Proposed Preliminary Budget of the Abington Heights School District for the 2020- 2021 fiscal year on form PDE 2028 as presented to the School Board is adopted as a Preliminary Budget Proposal for the School District General Fund. The Administration and School Board will continue review of budget components, and the Preliminary Budget may be revised prior to adoption of a Final Budget for the 2020- 2021 fiscal year.
