Sample Property Tax Report for a Blair County, PA property


Property taxes in Pennsylvania are levied and collected locally and fund local entities such as counties, municipalities and school districts.

Market Value

A property's market value has been defined by the Pennsylvania State Supreme Court as the price in a competitive market a purchaser, willing but not obligated to buy, would pay an owner, willing but not obligated to sell, taking into consideration all the legal uses to which the property can be adapted and might reasonably be applied.

Land value $370
Improvement value + $3,300
Market value = $3,670
Assessed Value

Assessment is the basis upon which taxing authorities tax a property. In Blair County a property's assessed value is calculated by multiplying the market value with the predetermined ratio which currently is 100%. However, if the property's assessment value is appealed, the county's common level ratio may be applied instead; this reflects a comparison of the previous year's actual sale prices to the assessed value.

Assessed value = $3,670
Exemptions And Taxable Value

Taxable value represents the assessed value less any tax exemptions or exclusions that apply. Several exemptions are available in the State of Pennsylvania, like homestead exclusion or Property Tax/Rent Rebate program, which may lower the property's tax bill.

Unfortunately, no data regarding the exact exemption was provided to us. Therefore the assessed value is equal to the taxable value.

Property Tax

Property tax is calculated by multiplying the taxable value with the corresponding millage rates and is an estimate of what an owner not benefiting from tax exemptions would pay. The rates are expressed as millages (i.e the actual rates multiplied by 1000).
Actual taxes might differ from the figures displayed here due to various abatement and financial assistance programs.

Tax description Assessed value Tax rate Tax amount
Blair County $3,670 * 32.0590‰ = $117.66
City of Altoona $3,670 * 385.3500‰ = $1,414.23
Altona Area School District $3,670 * 55.0000‰ = $201.85
Property tax $3,670 * 472.4090‰ = $1,733.74
