Allegheny County Rental Vehicle Tax

Blue Arrow Delinquent Rental Vehicle Tax Accounts 

On December 4, 2007, Allegheny County Council enacted a $2.00 per day Rental Vehicle Tax for Allegheny County which was signed into law by the County Executive to be effective January 1, 2008. Under state law, County Treasurer John K. Weinstein is the Tax Collector of all taxes levied in Allegheny County and thus responsible for the collection of this new tax.

If your establishment rents motor vehicles (any cars, trucks, vans, trailer or semi trailer used to transport property other then commercial freight) without a driver for less then a thirty (30) day period, you are subject to comply with the provisions of the law and this new Tax.

Monthly returns and tax remittance for revenues collected must be received by the Treasurer as posted in the following chart.
