Taxes will Likely go up for Older Upper Milford Homes
Some Upper Milford residents will see an increase, others will see a decrease, following Lehigh County reassessment.
Upper Milford Township Manager Daniel DeLong delivered a short report to the Upper Milford Township Board of Supervisors at the end of last night’s supervisors meeting, summarizing where the township stands with respect to the Lehigh County tax reassessment.
According to DeLong, the county will be mailing preliminary reassessments to residents beginning late next week. He stressed that these are only preliminary, not the final reassessments.
For Upper Milford Township, he said, it will mean this:
- 53.5 percent of the properties will see a decrease in their taxes.
- 46.7 percent of the properties will see an increase in their taxes.
DeLong offered the following guideline: “As a general rule of thumb, properties from the mid-1990s and older will probably see the increase, while properties from the mid-1990s and newer will most likely see the decrease.”
He also added that properties in the Act 4 Tax Relief Act will see no change.
