A little history about Ridley Township - Originally settled in 1644 by the Swedes and then the Dutch in 1655, the area was known as 'Amos land'. In 1682, John Simcock of Ridley, Chesire, England, purchased some 2,875 acres from William Penn and named the area after his hometown. Ridley was first recognized as a Township in 1687 and became a first-class Township March of 1906.

Area: 5.27 sq. miles
Population: 30,768 (2010 Census)

Ridley Township property owners will begin receiving their new assessment notice from the County of Delaware this week. This new assessment figure does not take effect until the 2021 tax year. Please keep in mind, Delaware County – not Ridley Township – determines your assessment.

If you would like to appeal your new assessment figure, you may call the County Assessment Office at 610-891-5695 to request an appeal form, or visit the County’s website – and file your appeal form no later than September 1, 2020. All appeals must be postmarked by that date.

The County Board of Assessment Appeals will schedule hearings on appeals and provide twenty days’ notice of the date, time, and place of the appeal hearing. Hearings will be held in person but will also be available remotely. All properties within the County have been reassessed using the same date of valuation: July 1, 2019. Your new assessment should reflect 100% of the market value of your property as of July 1, 2019. The Township has yet to receive a complete list of assessment of Ridley Township properties, so we are not able to let you know what similar homes may be assessed as for you to compare figures, and the township cannot, at this time, determine how your new assessment will affect your taxes. The township’s new millage rate has yet to be determined.

We do know, that you should not apply your new assessment figure to the township’s current millage rate, as the total tax amount will be inaccurate.
