Sample Property Tax Report for a Philadelphia 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

Philadelphia County Assessor determines the market value for all taxable real property in the county. Market value has been defined by The Supreme Court as the sale price of real estate as agreed upon between a willing buyer and willing seller, with neither being under duress to buy or sell.

Land value $1,010
Improvement value + $8,110
Market value = $28,500
Assessed Value

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

Assessed value = $28,500
Taxable Value

Exemptions are available in Philadelphia County which may lower the property's tax bill. These are deducted from the assessed value to give the property's taxable value.

Our information indicates that this property does not currently benefit from any exemptions. Therefore, the taxable value is equal to the total assessed value.

Property Tax

Property tax in Philadelphia County is calculated by multiplying the taxable value with the corresponding tax rates and is an estimate of what an owner not benefiting from any exemptions would pay.
There is a general property tax rate of 1.34% for the whole county, comprised of 0.602% allocated to the city, and 0.738% allocated to schools.

Tax description Assessed value Tax rate Tax amount
