As part of the Berks County Tax Claim Bureau's commitment to provide citizens with efficient, convenient service, Berks County has partnered with Official Payments Corporation to offer secure acceptance of electronic payment of delinquent real estate taxes. Payment of delinquent real estate taxes may now be done by the internet by using credit cards effective March 2010.
Payment will be credited within two business days of the transaction. Partial payment will be accepted. Official Payments Corporation charges the customer a fee when using a credit card transaction. Berks County does not receive this fee.
You will be required to enter your 14-digit PARCEL NUMBER when paying on-line. If you own a mobile home, you will be required to enter your 17-digit PARCEL NUMBER which will include letters.
A confirmation number will be provided. Please write down this number as a record of your payment. The charge will appear on your credit card or bank statement - the tax amount on one line; the convenience fee on a separate line.
