Interim Tax Bills
Interim tax bills are for new construction and improvements made to your property. They are mailed periodically during the year.
The amount of tax due for interims is based upon an additional assessment provided by the Montgomery County Board of Assessment Appeals on a monthly basis. If you feel the assessment is too high, you may contact the Board of Assessment at 610-278-3761. They are located at:
Montgomery County Courthouse
P.O. Box 311
Norristown, PA 19404-0311
Please remember to keep a copy of your tax bill for income tax purposes. Also, you can compare your copy of the tax bill with your mortgage company escrow statement to verify that your mortgage company paid the correct amount.
