Borough Taxes

Owners of property in the Borough of Media receive (3) three real estate tax bills each year. Delaware County and the Borough tax bills are mailed in early February. The Rose Tree Media School District bills are mailed in early July. Real estate taxes are calculated by taking the assessed value of the property (determined by the Delaware County Board of Assessment) and multiplying it by the local millage rate, and then dividing by a thousand. For 2023, the Township’s millage rate will be 2.00 mills.
