Allegheny County will mail property tax bills a month later than normal, but taxpayers will have extra time to claim a 2 percent discount, Treasurer John Weinstein announced on Monday.

The county will mail tax bills by March 12. Property owners will have until May 31 to lock in the 2 percent discount. They can pay the face value between June 1 and July 2. Penalties will accrue after that.

Allegheny County's tax rate is 5.69 mills, a 21 percent increase over last year's rate of 4.69 mills. A property assessed at $100,000 will pay about $100 more. The tax bills normally are due April 30 to pay face value, but uncertainty over the countywide, court-ordered reassessment this year caused delays.
