However, for an initial educated guess on what you should allow in your budget for taxes on a home in Dover, Pa., use something between 1.7 and 2 times the sale price.
For example, if you buy a 200,000 home you will probably pay pay something between $3400 and $4000 per year, or about $300 to $350 per month in taxes.
That is a very ROUGH rile of thumb and changes each year depending on the assessment-to-market value ratio, the millage rate, and the municipality where the home is located. Ex. Dover boro has higher taxes than Dover Township. I do know that a home in Dover Township that is assessed at $160,000 has monthly taxes of $318.
If you don't already have an agent, I would be happy to talk with you to give you more specific information.
