Welcome to Chalfant Borough

Chalfant Borough is nestled within the eastern suburbs of Allegheny County and is located just ten miles outside of Downtown Pittsburgh.

Chalfant, although small, is a borough with rich history dating back well over one hundred years.

Our quaint community is home to the beautiful Servicemen’s Memorial Park and ball field, several locally owned restaurants and businesses, and the landmark Parkway Steps.

Chalfant is delighted to remain a community where neighbors know one another and care about our borough.

We have recently updated our website in an effort to better support residents and visitors as they learn about the many resources available in Chalfant Borough.

Over the next few months, the website will continue to be updated with new content, so please check back frequently.

Warm Regards,

The Chalfant Borough Council

WPJWA Water Shut-Off Moratorium Information

Residents are Advised to Check Tax Statement Address

Notice to all Homeowners in Chalfant Borough.

It has been brought to my attention, with the mailing of the 2021 Chalfant Borough Tax Statements, that there are many incorrect mailing addresses for these statements. We do our best to record new owners and addresses provided by Allegheny County, but even on their site information isn’t always correct.

With the high number of Mortgages being sold and people refinancing, the County and the Chalfant tax collector don’t always get the new information quickly enough. It is the responsibility of all homeowners to advise the County and the local tax collector of any changes in the mailing address of tax statements. If you or your mortgage company don’t receive a tax statement, that does not excuse you from paying. A lot of these mailings do not get returned to me because they are deliverable, but that person may not live there any longer or that mortgage company may no longer hold your mortgage.

Chalfant Borough Tax Statements are mailed on March 1st of the year, Allegheny County Tax Statements are mailed on March 1st of the year and the Woodland Hills School District Tax Statements are mailed on July 1st of the year.

If you do not receive these, it is the Homeowner’s responsibility to advise the taxing agencies immediately. In doing so, the homeowner avoids the unpaid tax being turned over to Jordan Tax Services as a delinquent account.

Always remember to report the following: New Mortgage Company and mailing address(due to refinancing or mortgage being sold to another mortgage holder) Tax Statements to be mailed to a different branch or locations of the mortgage holder. The payoff of the mortgage, need to advise of new mailing address of Tax Statements. Homeowners renting a property, need to advise of your (property owner) new mailing address for Tax Statements.

In reporting all these things to the taxing agency, it can help keep you, the homeowner, receiving your tax statements and therefore not having your account go delinquent. If you have any questions regarding this notice, please call me at 412-824-3283 or email me at cadon4946@hotmail.comYour cooperation is greatly appreciated.
