Taxes Billing Update

*From the Tax Collector's Office - 7/14/2023

Berlin Borough has not received the 2023 tax rate at this time. This is typical for every year. Once the rate has been updated, the tax bills will be mailed out. The WIPP website will also be updated. You will have an extension on the grace period to pay. Thank you for your cooperation.
