Tax Information


Tax Collector – Sharon Hill Borough


Real Estate Taxes

Property owners may receive three different real estate tax bills each year. Sharon Hill Borough and Delaware County tax bills are mailed in February. Southeast Delco School District tax bills are mailed in July.

How are real estate taxes calculated?

The 2024 millage rate for Sharon Hill Borough is 7.50 mills. 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 Sharon Hill Borough tax:

If your home is assessed at $150,000:
$150,000 ÷ 1000 = 150 x 7.50 = $1,125.00

Who is responsible for paying real estate taxes?

All property owners listed on the deed of a property are legally responsible for paying the full amount of the real estate tax. Failure to receive a bill does not alleviate you from the responsibility.

Original tax bills are mailed to the homeowner, not the mortgage company. If funds are held in escrow to pay real estate taxes, avoid duplicate or missed payments by checking with your lender to determine payment expectations. Failure to pay property taxes can result in a tax lien or foreclosure. If necessary, contact the tax collector for a copy of the tax bill. Duplicate bill fees may apply.
