Wilkinsburg Tax Delinquent Property List
MBM report as of 9/30/2017
Maiello Brungo & Maiello is the delinquent tax collector for Wilkinsburg Borough and for Wilkinsburg School District. This list includes borough and school district tax delinquency only and MSF (municipal services fee) delinquency, which is liened to the property. Allegheny County tax delinquency is not included. I have merged the borough, MSF and school district delinquency amounts provided by MBM for each property, and have made no changes to the lists.
There are 2807 properties on the list, a decrease since the last quarter that reported delinquency for 3067 properties. Still– 40 percent of taxable properties in Wilkinsburg.
After the list is completely loaded, you can search for a string and sort on any column. You can highlight a set of rows-columns, and copy-paste into Excel, where you can enlarge the text size and column width. This is TablePress for WordPress.
To identify vacant lots that have no house number, use this list along with the Maps tab of county real estate website. Search for the nearest parcel that does have a house number; look at the map and find the vacant lot by its location near a house address or a street corner. Then search this list for the lot-block ID of the vacant lot.
Some accounts have been paid since the report was issued and MBM has removed some accounts as mistakes. This is every property that was on the report as of 9/30/2017, even those I know are not tax delinquent now (November 1, 2017).
This list shows that our borough government and school district prioritize collection of revenue over the health of the real estate tax base that produces the revenue. The goal hasn’t been to reduce the number of properties on the list; it has been to collect revenue. If the goal were to reduce the count of tax delinquent properties, the municipal building (605 Ross) and Graham Field (233-C-275) would not appear on the list.
