Doylestown Borough Council approved a 2019 budget with a 2 mill tax increase.
This last budget increase Doylestown Boro homeowners experienced was in 2013. Borough officials say the tax increase is necessary to address a growing General Fund operating budget deficit.
It’s important to note that the Doylestown Borough Real Estate Tax accounts for just 9.27% of the total taxes paid – this is the smallest portion of a Borough homeowner’s Real Estate Tax bill.
The increase amounts to an extra $57 for the average homeowner compared to the 2018 rate, bringing the average tax bill to about $434 in 2019.
