You are right. Follow this link. There is a list of all tax millage rates (what the townships used to figure out taxes) for all the townships in Bucks County.

I would be happy to show the home to you if you are still in the market...thanks, Diane Johnston
Doesn't seem like you're getting a really clear answer here. Let me try to help.
Since your price range is $850K+, you probably want to look into areas such as Ottsville, Upper Black Eddy and Erwinna. Basically the entire Tinicum Township is where you will find homes in the $850+ price range, low property taxes and a convenient commute to Princeton.
However, depending on the location of the house, your property taxes might vary. For example, the New Hope area is known for high taxes, but I just recently sold an older home on 2.5 acres of land in New Hope that was backing to 32 acres of preserved land and the property taxes were under $4,000 a year. But I think your best bet would be to concentrate on Tinicum Twp area.
For your convenience, here are some links that you might find helpful.

My direct answer to Phil's question is by no mean to hold information from anyone, I searched the area close enough to Phil's commute to Princeton and came up with a list of properties in his price range that will help him decide not only on the area but the distance he is willing to travel to save even more on taxes by single property not just towns, Lee posted the bucks county millage chart ( thank you Lee!), however the property assesments are different from one another.
please view this link ie
I'm in Quakertown - curious where we rank tax-wise
I would to discuss your needs further. How big of a house are you looking for? Age? How much land?
Each township has a different rate for taxes. I would be more than happy to assit you. Feel free to email me at LeeStiber@kw.com and take a tour of my website where you can search for homes and compare the taxes of them.
