The records for all properties in Montour County are kept in the Assessment Office. Property record cards indicate the assessed value, lot size or acreage, the size of any buildings on the property, owners name, address and the parcel identification number. The assessed value is the figure used to calculate real estate taxes by taking the millage times the assessed value.
County and borough/township real estate and per capita taxes are sent in March and school real estate taxes are sent in July.
We keep the occupational and per capita records in our office. The field assessor goes door to door to collect this information.
