In Chester County, taxes are based on the assessed value of your property. The township does not assess homes. This is done at the county level. Questions on this matter should be directed to the Chester County assessment office at (610) 344-6105.
The township sets the tax rate, or millage, each year for land and dwelling. A fire hydrant tax is also charged if you have a fire hydrant within 750 feet of your property. This tax is included as a separate item in your bill.
Currently, the dwelling and/or land millage rate is 1.034. The hydrant millage rate is 0.087, making the total millage rate 1.121 for properties within 750 feet of a fire hydrant.
The Upper Uwchlan tax collector handles only the real estate and hydrant taxes. These tax bills are mailed annually around the first of March. For more information, please contact Tax Collector Ben LaGarde at (484) 212-1916.
