Tracking property taxes

On Sunday, we published a story that tracked school district taxes over time.

Here’s a database to search your school district or to compare tax rates. If you are a homeowner, it’s worth noting that simply looking at the rates isn’t the best predictor of your bill.

For example, any homeowner can sign up for the Homestead Tax Relief program, which gives you a break on the bill. In York City, it knocks off about $500. In other districts it’s about $100.

Also, tax bills are based on your property’s assessment. To figure out your tax bill take your assessment times the rate and then divide that number by 1,000.
