How do I find out if the taxes are up-to-date on a particular property?

I believe that property tax records are public, but I'm not sure where to go to find them.  If I would like to find out if the owners of a particular property owe back taxes, how would I find that out?  Would I call the local municipal office (Glenolden, PA)?  Or is there a way to research online?

The county that you live in should have a website that you can access. A portion of that county website should have a link to the tax assessor. Once you're in the tax assessor portion of the website it should be a breeze from there. 

Take care and good luck!

If it were me I would call the tax collector and ask if the taxes are paid up to date.  That person has the most up to date answer.  Cindy Kieft RE/Max Main St Realty

If the listing has been on the maket awhile, ask your agent to contact the listing agent and verify that the taxes have been updated to reflect the current year.

You can also go to your county treasurer's website and enter the address or APN. If the website doesn't have that ability then you can check at your county. A call to them might save a trip.

Talk to an agent with access to an MLS (multi listing service) the information is as accurate as you can get.
