Real Estate Taxes
2020 Township Real Estate Tax Extension
On Monday, March 23, 2020, Township Council issued a 2020 Township Real Estate Taxes Proclamation.

Pursuant to Resolution No. 31-2020, The Emergency Declaration for Coronavirus COVID-19 Pandemic, Concord Township Council is deferring the time to pay 2020 Concord Township taxes as follows:
  • The discount period for Township Taxes is extended to April 30, 2020;
  • The payment of the face amount for Township Taxes is extended to October 31, 2020; and
  • The penalty payment period for Township Taxes will not begin until November 1, 2020.

In Concord Township, property owners receive three different real estate tax bills each year. Concord Township and Delaware County tax bills are mailed in February. Garnet Valley School District tax bills are mailed in July. Real estate taxes are based on a millage rate which is determined by each of these governing bodies each year.

In 2020, the millage rate for Concord Township is 0.981 mills. Delaware County’s tax rate is 5.461 mills. Garnet Valley School District’s fiscal year runs from July 1, 2019 to June 30, 2020 and the millage rate for this period is 33.0721.

Real estate taxes are calculated by multiplying the local millage rate (property tax rate) by 1/1000th of the assessed value of the property. To calculate, take your ASSESSED value and divide by 1000, then multiply by the millage rate.

*Please note: Property assessments are set by the County.*

Sample Calculation of Concord Township tax:

If your home is assessed at $150,000:
$150,000 ÷ 1000 = 150 x 0.981 = $147.15
