The Carbon County Tax Claim Bureau was created as a result of the enactment of the Pennsylvania Real Estate Tax Sale Law (Act 542 of 1947). The purpose of Act 542 is to promptly return properties with delinquent Real Estate Taxes to the productive tax rolls. The Local Taxing Authorities (Municipal, County, and School Districts) have benefited by the accelerated collection of Delinquent Real Estate Taxes without undue hardship on the property owner. The provisions of certain divestitures of liens and encumbrances appear to attract purchasers to tax sales, thus transferring non-taxpaying properties into the hands of responsible taxpayers. The general activities that take place in the Tax Claim Bureau are collections, tax sales, and distribution of paid taxes.
