Payment Notices

Mars Area School District real estate tax payment notices are distributed the 1st of August every year.

The tax payment notice indicates the dates when tax payments can be completed at discount, face value or penalty.

Tax Certification Request Letters

All tax certification request letters must be accompanied by payment in the amount of $15. If the certification request needs to be expedited, the fee is $20.

Tax Payments
You are required to notify the Tax Collector immediately if your mortgage company has changed or you no longer have an escrow account established through your mortgage company for the payment of Real Estate Taxes and need to be billed directly.

Taxes not paid by December 31st of each year are turned over to the Butler County Tax Claim Bureau where further penalties will be added to the tax payment due. Currently, the bureau charges an administrative collection fee of $45 plus all interest accrued on the unpaid tax payment.

For taxpayers who would like to pay the real estate tax payment in person rather than through the mail, the office is open for walk-ins Tuesday and Wednesday 5-7 p.m. during discount.

If these days or times do not fit into your schedule, please call the number or use the email address above to make an appointment.

Additional Questions
If you have any questions, the office answers and returns calls 6 days a week (days and evenings). Please leave a message. Your call will be returned as soon as possible.
