I just received a delinquent tax notice from Keystone collections. I just forgot to pay last years and now they have added a ton of fees and penalties. What I'm curious about are these "Act 20" penalties. I have one for about $100 and another for nearly $400. These are in addition to the $85 the school district is charging in penalty. Those two combined are almost more than the original tax. Does this seem excessive? What is this Act 20 all about?
