  • Schuylkill County Taxes

    Posted Under: General Area in Schuylkill County  |  January 29, 2012 5:07 PM  |  2,917 views  |  No comments

    Schuylkill County Taxpayer Information

    There are four bills that you may receive during the year:

    • County/Municipality Real Estate
    • County/Municipality Per Capita
    • School District Real Estate
    • School District Per Capita

    All Taxes must be paid on or before December 31st of the Tax Year or they are considered delinquent.

    Current taxes (Taxes paid on or before December 31st of the current Tax Year) are payable to your Municipality/City (elected or appointed) Tax Collector. Your tax collector’s name, address, phone number and hours of collection appear on your tax bill. The last payment date for each period can be found directly above the dollar amount due for the corresponding period, in the upper right-hand side of your tax bill.

     

    Real Estate Millage and Calculation:

    The millage rate is determined by the taxing authority. The tax calculation is Millage x Assessed Value / 1000 = the taxes you will pay. For a list of Schuylkill County municipalities and their current millage, go to the link attached.

    For a real world example, take a property whose county determined Fair Market Value (FMV) is $100,000. Its Assessed Value (AV) is then $50,000 (50% of FMV). If this property is in the City of Pottsville its taxes will be:

    County Tax 50,000 x 11.98 / 1000 = $ 599.00
    City Tax 50,000 x 17.87 / 1000 = $ 893.50
    (these two bills arrive in March each year and run from Jan 1 – December 31)
    School Tax 50,000 x 34.00 / 1000 = $1700.00
    (this bill arrives in July each year and run from July 1 – June 30)

    Property Management Software: 123Landlord

    This past year our rental property business has really picked up and we're now managing and renting more properties than ever. It's becoming a bit overwhelming, so I've been looking for property management software. I tried a few but nothing seemed to suit me, until I tried 123Landlord.

    I clicked on an ad here on AR a few weeks ago and took the free trial. It's free forever if you have 1 user and 2 tenants / 2 properties. More than that and there is a small monthly charge of $7/mo, $15/mo or $39/mo depending on how many users and tenants/properties you have. The $7/mo plan is all our office needs for the moment, but we'll soon be stepping it up to the next level I think.

    We're still in the larning phases with this software, but honestly this is the first software I've tried that has been intuitive to learn and with a clean, easy to understand interface. It's cloud hosted, so no software to download. You can use it on any computer.

  • Schuylkill County HUD Home Update for November 27, 2011

    Schuylkill County HUD Home Update for November 27, 2011

     

    We currently have 4 HUD owned properties for sale in Schuylkill County, three of which have been on the market for a few months now, and their prices are actually listed at below appraised value. Normally HUD homes don't last this long, but these seem to be not going anywhere soon. The one in Minersville is extremely rough and even at $8000 asking price is not a bargain.

     

    Our office is a certified HUD Homes Broker in Schuylkill County. If you'd like to see any of these HUD homes, please contact us!
