PO Box 404

Welcome to the Cambria Township Tax Collector page, I am currently working on my office and will not be
available for office hours for the month of January or February, by appointment only. I am available by phone at 814-243-5042. I will respond to your call as soon as possible.

As the Cambria Township Tax Collector, I am responsible for collecting taxes for Cambria Township, Central Cambria School District and Cambria County.
These taxes are made payable to Cambria Township Tax Collector 
County and Township Taxes
 ​The 2018 County and Township tax bills will be mailed out in February, and will be due as follows:
2% Discount March 1 - April 30
Face May 1 - June 30
10% Penalty July 1 - December 15

​Central Cambria School District and Per Capita Tax
 The 2018 School and Per Capita tax will be mailed out in June, and will be due as follows:
2% Discount July 1 -  August 31

10%  Penalty November 1 - December 15

By January 10th of the following year, all delinquent bills are turned over to the Cambria County Tax Claim Office In the Cambria County Courthouse at 814-472-1445.

Homestead/Farmstead Act:
 The Central Cambria School District mails out applications for the Homestead/Farmstead Act in
December. Everyone in the school district that applies will receive. If your property was previously apporoved no action is nesessary. If you received an application, complete and return.

If the property is owned by a tax payer but it is in another individuals name, that person is not eligible to receive the reduction. An approved Homestead/Farmstead is eligible to pay this on an installment basis, instead of a lump sum amount. Those payments are made on the face amount and not on the discount amount. The Homestead/Farmstead is a result of Act 1. The funding comes from PA Gaming monies.

 Local Services Tax

This is the time of year I will be working on Local Services Tax (LST). Any person over 18 with gross earnings of $12,000 or more is responsible for paying this tax. This includes both residents and non-residents who are employed or self-employed within Cambria Township. The tax amount is $25.00 per person. Employers in Cambria Township are required to withhold this tax from an employee's pay and forward it to the tax collector by December 31, of each year.

Tax Certification
If you need a Tax Certification for a property, please send a check for $10.00 made payable to:
Carol Driskel and mail to: PO Box 404, Ebensburg, PA 15931 and the certification will be processed.
