Mailing Real Estate Tax Bills
The Phoenixville Borough Real Estate tax bills are mailed annually in March. Property owners are responsible for all taxes on their property. Failure to receive a bill does not relieve the taxpayer from the responsibility to pay.

Local Income & Local Services Tax Collection Procedures
The Chester Tax Collection Committee (CTCC) recently appointed Keystone Collections Group to serve as the Earned Income Tax (EIT) and Local Services Tax (LST) collector for school and municipal taxing authorities within Chester County.
This important change was brought about under Act 32 of 2008. Act 32 requires municipal governments and school districts in all Pennsylvania counties, except Philadelphia, to select a single tax collector to serve the EIT collection needs of the political subdivisions within the county.
Keystone will officially start EIT and LST collections for the CTCD effective January 1, 2011. This means that Keystone will be responsible for processing payments for the 1st quarter of 2011 and thereon.
