Real estate taxes flowing in early to Montco


Montgomery County Treasurer Jason Salus says real estate taxes are being paid more quickly than usual this year.

Collections through April were up 7.34 percent over last year, Salus announced Wednesday afternoon.

"We provided our Tax Collectors with the data they needed to send out their bills earlier this year than the Treasurer’s office has in previous years," he said. 

Salus said the collection rate should level out over the rest of the year, but "we certainly think there’s a benefit to collecting the revenues as early in the year as possible."
