It's a simple question, yet you have not received a simple answer :) From July 1, 2010 thru June 30, 2011 the Common Level Ratio for Chester County is 1.81. If you purchase a new construction house in Chester County for $300K and close by June 30, 2011, it will be initially assessed at ~90% of $300K, but after you appeal it will be dropped to $300K/1.81 = $166K. Current millage for Downingtown Area School District is 26.213, which translates into $166K * 26.213/1000 = $4.4K for school tax. Add 3.965 mills for the county and 2.75 mills for East Brandywine Township.

Whatever you are quoted be aware that Downingtown just petitioned the state to allow them to raise taxes higher than the state ceiling of a little over 3 %, part of that increase will be used to build that new middle school directly across from the Applecross development on Bollinger Road.

Nancy..Which model are you thinking about. There are at least 3 ranging in price from $235k to $330k. Will have an effect on the tax estimate. Please do not hesitate to contact me with additional questions
