How do I calculate my property taxes in Beaver County?

The first step in calculating the property tax in Beaver County, PA, is to find the assessment for the property. The Assessment Search Tutorial will thoroughly explain the procedure of searching the property assessment on the Beaver County web site.

Beaver County $23,500 X 22.20 = $521,700.00 $521.70
TOTAL 115.00 $2,707.20

What's a mill and why do I need to divide by 1,000?

Beaver County PA - Property Tax Calculation
Big Beaver Falls Area School District 61   0.0061
