REAL ESTATE TAXES
JoAnne Grube, Tax Collector firstname.lastname@example.org
Westtown Township Real Estate Tax is based on the millage rate and the assessed value of your property (not market value). The current Westtown Township Millage Rate is 3.5. One mill is 1/1000 of $1.00 or .001. A property with an assessed value of $200,000 at a rate of 3.5 mills would be taxed $700 ($200,000 x .0035). Chester County and the West Chester Area School District also levy a real estate tax, which are billed separately by those taxing authorities. To appeal the assessed value of your property, contact the Chester County Assessment Office (610.344.6105).
