Real Estate Property Tax
East Bradford Township
The current real estate tax millage rate is 1.75 mills on each dollar of assessed valuation. You can use this formula to calculate your property tax: Assessment × millage = tax (face amount). So, the Township tax (1.75 mills) for a property with an assessed value of $200,000 would be calculated as follows: $200,000 × 0.00175 = $350 (face amount). [Note: 1.75 mill is equivalent to a millage of 0.00175 - the decimal is moved three places to left.]
East Bradford Township has contracted with the Chester County Treasurer's Office to bill and collect the real estate taxes for the Township. They also collect the County real estate taxes. Residents can mail payments directly to the Treasurer's Office:
