You can research it yourself. Many counties have online information. You can also contact a REALTOR. A professional should have that information as his/her finger tips.

Google the County Assessor Office of the county you are interested in.

Most properties will vary due to size or layout. Unless it is the exact same home in a community taxes can fluctuate, due to different assessments on properties. In our Area the county millage rate will be the same for everyone, the assessment will be different, The school and township/borough rates will also vary area to area. So we have school ,County, And township/borough Millage rates which multiplied with the property assessment will equal the total property taxes in our area.

Anyone who has access to property tax information is a good source, Mortgage people and the easiest would be Realtors and Title/settlement companies. I will tell you that homes located in the West Chester school district of Pennsylvania have one of the lowest property taxes in the entire Delaware Valley. Delaware State would be the only exception with lower taxes, but then their are other issues to be concerned about purchasing in the State of Delaware.

Please contact us and we will be Happy to assist you any way we can Jaicee.

Taxes in PA vary from township to township and property to property depedning on the assesment value for the property. Most listings show the taxes.For new construction, initially the county takes the value of the property and uses a multiple of between 58.8 and 62.5% of the price to arrive at an assesed value, but this can then be challenged using recent comps.

Hope this helps, feel free to contact me about any specific properties.

Hi, you can visit either the tax assessors local office or website, if it provides tax info.

These can be usually found on the county tax assessor website. Each site is different so it may require a little searching within the site. There should be a section with the taxable rate, or at least the assessed value and the annual taxes.
