USC Drops Tax Rate In Accordance With New Assessment Data
According to the latest numbers from Allegheny County, the township has $2.033 billion of assessed value.
The Upper St. Clair Board of Commissioners voted to adopt a 3.83 millage rate Monday night.
The rate dropped from the 3.9 mills they approved in the 2013 budget on Dec. 3, 2012.
They adopted the new millage rate after receiving more recent reassessment data from Allegheny County at the end of December 2012.
The total assessed value in Upper St. Clair increased to $2.033 billion. The township's overall assessed taxable values are 20 percent higher than those used for the 2012 tax year.
Finance Director August Stache said Allegheny County used the same data to determine the county tax rate for residents.
