Allegheny County residents now have until the end of Monday to pay their property taxes at a 2 percent discount.

County Treasurer John Weinstein said Saturday he was extending the discount window by an extra day because the original deadline, March 31, fell on a Sunday.

Real estate taxes are due by April 30.

Payments are accepted online through the county’s real estate tax payment platform.

Residents who prefer to pay in person can do so until 7:30 p.m. Monday at the Allegheny County Courthouse in Pittsburgh.

Late penalties will apply starting May 1. The penalty begins at 5 percent of the gross amount due, plus 1 percent interest for each month taxes are late.

In July, the Treasurer’s Office will mail delinquent notices for all unpaid taxes.

Senior discount deadline: June 30

Homeowners ages 60 and older have until June 30 to apply for the 2019 Senior Citizen Tax Relief program.

The program offers a 30 percent discount on county real estate taxes owed by seniors who have lived in and owned their homes for at least 10 years and do not make more than $30,000 annually in gross household income.

For more information, call the Treasurer’s Office at 412-350-4100 or go to AlleghenyCountyTreasurer.us.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
