Real Estate Taxes
South Fayette elects the tax collector to accept payment for real estate taxes (property taxes) for both South Fayette Township and the South Fayette Township School District. The township office does not directly handle tax collection.
Online payment options and other property tax information are available on the tax collector's website. Property tax bills can be paid by e-check or credit card (fees apply).
- Township tax checks must be made payable to "South Fayette Township."
- School tax checks must be made payable to "South Fayette School District."
Real Estate Tax Payment Hours
The tax collector does not have a permanent office in the township building, but holds office hours during periods of high volume. Hours will be published on the Tax Office Calendar when available. Otherwise, please contact the collector regarding availability for individual meetings.
