A forum tomorrow is aimed at helping Allegheny County residents who are having trouble paying their real estate taxes or mortgages. The county's Treasurer, Controller and Sheriff will all attend. Controller Mark Patrick Flaherty says they want to hear suggestions about what the county can do to help residents who are having problems with taxes or foreclosures. So far, the county has delayed its annual filing of real estate tax liens. Normally, they're filed in August. A new date has not been set. A Taxpayer Task Force is also studying ways the county can help taxpayers.
The forum will be held in the Allegheny County Courthouse's Gold Room tomorrow from 5 to 7 pm.
