The Tax Office produces and collects tax revenues for the school district.
School tax bills are produced and mailed every July 1. The revenue is collected July-December each year before any unpaid bills are turned over to the Lancaster County Tax Claim Bureau for collection. Throughout the year interim tax bills are issued to all properties with new construction or improvement. Interims are issued after the Lancaster County Assessment Office assigns an assessed value to the property. The office also provides tax certifications to settlement/mortgage companies when properties are sold or refinanced.
Tax Certification Details Tax information is provided to a settlement company or tax service by tax certification only. Certification must be requested in writing by fax or mail. Fee: $25.00 per parcel. Please make checks payable to the Hempfield School District.
