Taxes and Fees



The Borough tax rate for 2021 is 3.115 mills. To calculate your annual taxes, divide your assessment by 1,000 and multiply by the millage rate.  Be sure you are using the final new assessment for your property sent this fall from the Delaware County Assessor's Office.

Example for a house assessed at $250,000:
250,000/1,000 x 5.673 = $1,418.25
 
The Borough charges $430.00 annually for collection of trash.
 
Sewer fees are based on the water usage for the last quarter of 2019 and first three quarters of 2020, as reported to the Borough by AQUA. The annual fee for 2021 is $9.05 for each thousand of gallons of water used.

Borough taxes and fees are mailed February 1 of each year. Taxes and fees paid before March 31 will receive a 2% discount. Taxes and fees paid after May 31st are subject to a 10% penalty. Any questions, please email the Tax Collector at
