Taxes, Fees & Assessments

Property Taxes


All property tax collections, real and personal, are coordinated by the counties. Therefore, inquiries, collections and adjustments to property tax bills cannot be accommodated by the City of Weirton municipal office.

Because the City of Weirton is a two-county municipality, contact your respective county assessor’s office for issues regarding property valuation.
