Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

My best advice would be to call the tax collector in the county you live in to verify that this is a legitimate bill. You will then be able to find out why you never received a bill.

PA does assess for school taxes.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb
