N217B Taxation of Bill of Costs and Appeal


(a) All bills of costs shall in the first instance be taxed by the Prothonotary and either party may have such taxation on five (5) days' notice to the opposite party. All bills of costs shall be filed within ten (10) days of the award or verdict.
(b) The party aggrieved by the taxation may appeal therefrom within five (5) days after the taxation, but the party appealing shall within five (5) days after the appeal file a specification, verified by affidavit, of the items to which he objects; otherwise the appeal will be dismissed.
(c) No appeal from the taxation of costs shall stay execution or prevent the collection of the debt or costs without a special order of court on sufficient cause shown; but the Court may direct that the costs objected to be not included in the execution. If execution issues, and the money is paid or the amount paid into court pending appeal, the amount in dispute shall remain in the officer's hands or be paid into court to abide the result.
(d) No costs can be taxed until they have been paid into the office in which they are payable and taxable.
(e) Costs of the clerk of any court, sheriff or register of wills may be taxed by any party in interest upon notice.
