May 7,2020.....The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania passed Act 15 of 2020, which took effect on April 20, 2020, that gave local municipalities the ability to revise the real estate tax payment periods. During April 2020, the Berks County Commissioners approved revising the real estate tax payment period by extending the flat payment period until September 30, 2020.  The real estate discount payment period was not altered.

 During their monthly meeting on May 5, 2020, the Bern Township Supervisors approved revising the real estate tax payment period by extending the flat payment period until September 30, 2020 to mesh with the county’s payment period schedule. The discount payment period was not altered.  

 

Any Bern Township residents who have not paid their real estate tax bills have the opportunity to pay the flat fee until September 30, 2020.


 From Berks EIT: "Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, both the IRS and Pennsylvania
Department of Revenue have extended the income tax return filing and
payment date from April 15, 2020 to July 15, 2020. The Berks Earned
Income Tax Bureau is also extending the local income tax return due
date (filing of the return and payment of any amount owed) to July 15,
2020, as well as any estimated payments for the first quarter of 2020.
The Bureau will waive penalty and interest on the 2019 individual
income tax payments as long as the individual files their return and
pays the tax due on or before July 15, 2020. Information and
instructions for filing the 2019 Local Individual Tax Return
(including an online option and forms to print out and mail in) with
Berks Earned Income Tax Bureau can be found on our website at
www.berkseit.com [1] under the "Individual Earned Income Tax" section.
Any specific questions can be emailed to beitb@berkseit.com" March 26, 2020
