I don't think you can, but I'm not sure. What's the rush, Robert? The taxes won't go anywhere.

I talked to Don Reed and the Somerset Co. Treasurer's Office. They say that the county uses Tax Collectors who are not allowed to accept payments for future years because of a provision to prevent fraud. Other counties, such as Allegheny, do not uses tax collectors and can apparently accept 2018 payments. So it looks like we are out of luck.

Pay 2018 County/Boro Taxes in 2017?

Does anyone know if you can pay 2018 County/Boro taxes before the end of the year.  If so, how do you do it?
We know the Indian Lake tax will reduce from 19.3 mills to 16.3 and I have a Daily American article stating that the County taxes will remain the same at 13.36. I'm thinking of just sending a check to Don Reed for the appropriate amount. Any thoughts?
