AN UPDATE FROM THE BOROUGH TAX COLLECTOR HARVEY GLANTZ
In light of the increase in Coronavirus (COVID-19) cases, the Berks County Commissioners stated that all County facilities will remain closed to the public. Based on the Commissioners actions, the Borough of Sinking Spring, and I have agreed to cancel all sitting hours for this 2021 tax collection year.
So as to protect the taxpayer and tax collector, the Borough Council Room will be closed. We are only offering 2 methods for collection and processing of tax payments.
OPTION #1 - You may mail your payments to me at the address listed on your tax bill.
OPTION #2 - You may place your payment into the large drop box marked 'Real Estate Tax Payments' attached to the Borough building to the left of the office door.
With either option, should you desire a receipted bill, please provide a stamped self addressed envelope, with both portions of your tax bill and payment (check, bank check, or money order). NO CASH PAYMENTS WILL BE ACCEPTED.
All payments received will be processed within 24 hours of its receipt.
Remember, the April 30th Discount Period HAS NOT been postponed.
Thank you for your kind understanding.
Harvey Glantz, Tax Collector
