Real Estate Taxes
Current Real Estate Tax
The millage rate is the rate which the Board of School Directors sets for the taxation of the assessment on a property. The assessment value is determined by the Montgomery County Board of Assessments. Your current school district real estate tax can be calculated by taking the millage rate and multiplying it by your property assessment. If you believe that your property is assessed incorrectly, you can contact the Montgomery County Board of Assessments at 610-278-3761.
