School tax bills are sent out in July and are due as follows:
- 2% discount if paid by August 31
- Full amount if paid by October 31
- 10% penalty applied if paid after October 31
If you are a Homestead or Farmstead homeowner you are eligible for the installment plan. There are 3 installments. If you pay in installments, you will not qualify for the 2% discount, even if all installments are paid before August 31. Instructions for opting-in to the installment plan are at the bottom of your bill or you contact the Bellwood-Antis School District. Acceptable forms of payment include cash, check or money order. Real estate taxes not paid by December 31 will be submitted to the Blair County Tax Collection Bureau for collection.
County tax bills are sent out in March. For more details, visit the Blair County Assessment Office. Township and County tax bills are sent out in the beginning of March, and are due as follows:

Antis Township tax bills are sent out at the same time as the county in March. Overall, the township’s share of your annual real estate taxes is a small fraction of your total tax bill, accounting for less than 5% of your annual total.
