Property Taxes for Bear Creek Township are set annually. Since 2009 the property tax rate has been 0.4412 mils. A mil is the amount of tax per $1,000 of assessed property value. For example, a property valued at $100,000 would pay $44.12 per year to Bear Creek Township. Additional taxes are included on property tax bills for Luzerne County and the Wilkes-Barre Area School District. The Township derives no revenue from these other taxes.

We are pleased to offer an on-line alternative to pay your property taxes. Please note that there is an additional fee for this service. The fee is 2.65% of the payment with a minimum charge of $3.00. This is a charge from MuniciPay, the entity that offers the on-line service.
