Perkiomen Taxes

The county’s website lists the tax millage rates for all 62 of the municipalities in the county for 2011.

The good news.

Perkiomen Township is among the lowest taxed. The millage rate is 0.62
Our neighbors in Upper Providence, Trappe, Worcester and Skippack are the only ones that area lower, and they are nearly 0.

The bad news.

Perkiomen Valley School District is near the top at 28.14. Higher than PV schools are Springfield, Lower Moreland, Norristown, Jenkintown, Pottsgrove, Pottstown & Cheltenham School Districts.

Overall, that puts us at number 24 out of 62 in taxes.
