Property taxes can vary greatly due to age of home as well as improvements homeowners have made during ownership. Two properties built at the same time may be next to one another however one homeowner may have made improvements requiring township permits. When the township reviews the improvement the home may receive a new assessment therefore raising taxes. This is just one of the variables that currently exist in Bucks County. When purchasing a property a Realtor can pull property taxes of neighboring homes as a comparative to help analyze a purchase decision.

The school property tax rate varies by school district and township. Here's the county's web reference to the various milleage rates for each community. The milleage is applied to the assed value to determine taxes.

Be aware that the assessed value of two properties that are both appraised at the same market value can have notably different assessed values. A general county wide assessment has not been performed since the 70's; so, property assessments don't necessarily reflect market values.

I have written several blog posts at http://www.BucksCountyPaToday.com, about the whole issue of property taxes in Bucks County. If you are searching in the Pennsbury School District, the school tax rate is 150.3 mills. That is the number that is multiplied by the assessed value of a house, to determine what the school taxes would be.

The issue all over Bucks County is, that there are tremendous inequities in the property tax base. You can have 2 houses withing the Pennsbury School District, that are both worth the same amount of money, and yet their property taxes can be very different.

If you want more information, or if I can help with anything else, please let me know. Marty@MartinMillner.com

Pat,

It says you are searching in 19067, which would be Pennsbury School District (or in some parts, Morrisville, but the majority is Pennsbury). Pennsbury is 150.3 mills.

I'd be happy to look up the exact taxes for a specific home, or range of homes if you want. Or you can search on my website - http://www.kimberlyrock.com for properties that fit your needs and their specific info.

It depends on the school district. They all have different millage rates. If you want to send me an email with the specific property address I can help you figure it out.
