  • Hempfield School District 2017-18 Real Estate Tax Bills were mailed directly to the property owner and should be received on July 1, 2017. Property owners are responsible for payment of the real estate tax even if you do not receive your tax bill.

    If you own a property in the Hempfield School District and have not received your tax bill, please call the Tax Office at (717) 898-5565.

    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.
