On June 14th, the Garnet Valley School District issued its final tax rate for the 2021-2022 school year. The final rate is slightly lower than the preliminary rate that was proposed. The new millage rates are 18.4414 for Chester Heights and Concord and 18.6471 for Bethel Township and propose a 3.81% increase in expenditures and a 0% increase in cumulative taxes over last year. Each property owner will be impacted differently based on the change in their assessment.

CALCULATE YOUR TAXES
To calculate your new tax bill- find your current assessment at the Delaware County assessment website, divide by 1000 and apply the millage rate. You can calculate each tax segment separately: local, county, school, or you can combine the rates into one and apply it to your assessment. Applying one whole tax rate will result in a slightly higher tax bill because it doesn't account for the homestead exclusion available on residential properties for the school tax.
Below are the lists of properties as originally re-assessed. The assessment amounts may have changed due to appeals by either the homeowner, school district, or another interested party. The files below are being provided merely as a courtesy. Please confirm the assessment amounts HERE.
