Miscellaneous Tax Information

Municipal Real Estate Taxes

Please Note: The following is for informational use only.  Your actual tax liability will be provided to you by the Taxing Authority and this calculation in no way legally suggests/implies your actual tax obligation.

To determine your real estate tax you will need the following information:

  1. The assessed value of your home.
    1. To get your assessed value, call the York County Assessment and Tax Claim office (717) 771-9232 or use the following link: http://gis.york-county.org
  2. The mill rate for the township (for 2016: 0.8000 West Manchester Township)
    1. Your municipal tax rate can be found at the following web site: http://munstatspa.dced.state.pa.us/MunicipalTaxInfo.aspx

To calculate your municipal real estate tax, use the following formula:

Assessed Value multiplied by the Tax rate (mills) then divided by 1000 to get the dollar amount.

EX: (Assessed Value x tax rate) / 1000 = Municipal Tax

($100,000 x 0.8000) = 80,000 / 1000 = $80.00 per year or $6.67 per month

Note: The same formula is used to calculate your County’s and School District’s taxes.
