Tax Certification

A Tax Certification is an official document produced on Tax Claim Bureau letterhead that states the specific amount of delinquent taxes owing on a particular parcel as of the certificate date.  Entities such as, but not limited to, title companies, mortgage companies and banks must request and purchase a certification. No verbal certification will be given.
ONLINE CERTIFICATION NOW AVAILABLE! The Tax Claim Bureau is partnering with MuniciPay to offer an online tax certification option for customers. This option allows tax certifications to be purchased with a credit card through the Chester County website and eliminates the need to send requests through the mail. Online requests will be processed on the business day following the online submission.

NEW ONLINE CERTIFICATION OPTIONS: You can now order multiple Tax Certifications at one time using the "Shopping Cart" feature. Just enter the parcel number or owner's last name, select the certification you want and add it to the cart. The additional data required is where you want the certification sent. Please enter your street address, city, state and zip code. Finally, the "notes" box is for the fax number if you are requesting the fax return option. If you have requested the mail return option, please enter "N/A" or "None." Once this is complete, click on "Add Item" and you may either add another certification or click on "Checkout" to enter your payment information and complete the transaction.
