The Township is committed to minimizing tax increases. Our Real Estate Tax of .44 mills and an Emergency Services Tax of .25 mills give a combined tax of .69 mills. We also have an Earned Income Tax of 1% that is shared between the township and the Twin Valley School District, and a Property Tax going exclusively to the school district. We also share a transfer tax on real estate sales that is split between the township and the school district.
There are fines, specific fees for services, grants, and state programs that also generate revenue to operate the township.
The township office is housed in the former Central School. The school closed in 1966. Built in 1879, the school served as an elementary and high school for area children. The Board of Supervisors purchased the school from the Twin Valley School District in 1968 and has used it as the municipal building ever since.
