Stay of Sale Agreements
You are hereby notified that partial payments made on outstanding delinquent taxes, via this web site, DO NOT automatically generate a Stay of Sale Agreement/Installment Plan. Stay of Sale Agreements have specific restrictions, such as a minimum 25% down payment, and require a listed owner(s) sign the Agreement.

Note: Per Pennsylvania State Law – If a party to an installment agreement defaults on the agreement, the Bureau shall not enter into a new installment agreement with that person within three (3) years of default (72 P.S. 5860.603).
