Sample Property Tax Report for a Chester 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 $47,290
Building value + $128,630
Market value = $175,920
Assessed Value

The Assessor is responsible for establishing the assessed value of properties. They are calculated by multiplying a property's market value by a predetermined ratio. This predetermined ratio is currently set to 100% for the whole county. The assessment process takes place every year.

Assessed value = $175,920
Exemptions And Taxable Value

Taxable value represents the assessed value less any tax exemptions or exclusions that apply. For example, under the Local Economic Revitalization Assistance Act (LERTA), local taxing jurisdictions in Pennsylvania are permitted to exempt from real property taxation the assessed valuation of new construction in deteriorated areas or improvements to deteriorated industrial, commercial or other business property for up to ten years. Also, Homestead and Farmstead exclusion is available and may lower the property's tax bill.

Unfortunately, no data regarding the exact exemption or exclusion values 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. Actual taxes might differ from the figures displayed here due to various abatement, financial assistance programs and non-advalorem taxes.

Notice that we used 2014 school tax rates since the 2015 ones are not available yet.

Tax description Assessed value Millage rate Tax amount
County $175,920 * 4.1630‰ = $732.35
School $175,920 * 32.0036‰ = $5,630.07
Township $175,920 * 0.0000‰ = $0.00
Property tax $175,920 * 36.1666‰ = $6,362.43
