What is ‘Millage Rate’
The millage rate is the amount per $1,000 of property value that is used to calculate local property taxes. Assigned millage rates are multiplied by the total taxable value of the property in order to arrive at the property taxes. Taxing Authorities also use millage rates to calculate local taxes to be collected based on a derivation of the total property value within school district boundaries.
A home’s tax-assessed value is a percentage of its market value. The millage rate has an impact on the property’s tax-assessed value.
Current Property Millage (Tax) Rates are set by school districts, municipalities and the county. Property tax rates in Pennsylvania are referred to as millage rates, and they are figured in mills. One mill is equal to 1/1,000 of a dollar.
To calculate your tax bill:
- Convert the millage rate to its decimal equivalent to make the calculation easier. To do so, multiply the millage rate by .001.
o Example: 5 mills X .001=.005
• Multiply this figure by the property’s assessed value
o Example: A Tax Rate of 5 mills and a property assessed at $150,000
o Calculation: $150,000 X .005=$750
