The Tax Claim Bureau is responsible for collection of delinquent real estate taxes for 20 municipalities in Monroe County, plus the four school districts.

The Monroe County Tax Claim Bureau was created when the Pennsylvania Real Estate Tax Sale Law (Act 542 of 1947) was enacted. The purpose of Act 542 is to promptly return properties with delinquent real estate taxes to the productive tax rolls. The act also provides a uniform system of eliminating title disputes and solving problems from the previous system.

The Tax Claim Bureau receives approximately nine thousand (9,000) delinquent returns each year. The general activities that take place in the Tax Claim Bureau are collections, tax sales, and distribution of paid taxes.
