Single Tax Office Moving To New Home
The Lackawanna County Commissioners are pleased to inform the public that the Single Tax Office is “on the move” to an easily accessible location on the first floor of the Lackawanna County Department of Health and Human Services building on 315 Franklin Avenue, Scranton.
The Commissioners felt strongly that the Government Center did not serve the public very well. They have rectified the situation with the move to the Department of Health & Human Services building.
The new site will offer residents plenty of free parking and options for paying their Lackawanna County, Scranton City and Scranton School District taxes. Taxpayers can walk into the office to make payments at the in-office cashier bays. In addition, the drive-through window from the former Penn Federal Credit Union will be operational as well.
According to Single Tax Collector Cathy Wechsler, the move will happen over a two-week period from Monday, November 20, through Monday, December 4.
The tax office in the Government Center will continue to accept payments through Tuesday, November 28, and then close its doors. While the transition to the new facility will be ongoing, the new office will be open for business beginning Wednesday, November 29.
Throughout the move, residents also have the option of paying their taxes using the drop box in the vestibule of the Government Center or online at https://scrantontaxoffice.org/make-a-payment/ .
The office will be fully operational by December 4, providing work remains on schedule. If not, adjustments will be made to accommodate the public.
