Payment Information

How Do I Make a Payment?

Tax Bills for 2016 are mailed to property owners on or about July 1.  If taxes are escrowed with a bank or mortgage company please forward the entire bill to them for prompt payment.

If you have received a school real estate tax bill for a property that you no longer own, please return the entire bill to the Upper Darby School District with the name and address of the new owner.

Due Dates

  • Payments that are made prior to August 31, 2016 are entitled to a 2% discount. Payer should pay the DISCOUNT AMOUNT listed on their bill.
  • Payments made between September 1, 2016 & October 31, 2016 must be paid with FLAT AMOUNT listed on payer's bill.
  • Any payment made after October 31, 2016 and before January 31, 2017 is subject to a 10% late payment penalty. Payer should pay PENALTY AMOUNT listed on their bill.

Method of Payment

No payments will be directly accepted by the School District. Please see Payment Options for information on how to remit your taxes.

Paying Installments

All property owners will be eligible to pay their taxes in installments.

Please note the following due dates for installment payments:

PaymentDue Date
Installment #1 August 31, 2016
Installment #2 September 30, 2016
Installment #3 October 31, 2016

Please note that the 2% discount listed above for paying taxes early is not available for homeowners who elect to pay their taxes in installments.  If you wish to make installment payments, you must pay the first installment by August 31, 2016.  The remaining two coupons will be mailed to you by mid-September.  

If you do not pay your first installment by August 31, 2016, you forfeit your right to pay in installments. The FLAT amount becomes due at that time, and is payable by October 31, 2016.

By paying your first installment, the School District assumes that you wish to continue paying in installments. No discount payment will be available after payment of Installment #1.

If you pay either Installment #2 and/or Installment #3 after the respective due dates, the School District will assess a 10% penalty on each delinquent installment payment. Remit the Installment Penalty Amount listed on your bill.

A receipt can only be provided after the final installment payment is made.

After January 15, 2017, the only acceptable forms of payment (Full OR Installment) are either by CERTIFIED CHECK or MONEY ORDER.

The records of all properties on which 2016 taxes have not been paid by January 31, 2017 will be returned to the Delaware County Tax Claim Bureau, Government Center Building, Media, PA 19063 for further disposition and collection. Delinquent taxes are subject to a filing fee and 9% annual interest (0.75% per month).
