TAXES

  • Property taxes in PA are based on millage rates set by individual municipalities and school districts.
  • Property taxes in PA vary from one county to another, and one municipality to the next.
  • Taxation is a major source of revenue for most townships.
  • Taxes help to keep roads serviced, schools running, and emergency services available.
  • Residents of Fawn Township receive tax bills in late February for County/Township taxes and the beginning of July for the School District taxes.
  • Both of these bills are payable to the Fawn Township Tax Collector, Patsy A. Birley.
  • Real Estate taxes are based on a millage rate.
  • One mill is equal to $1.00 of tax per every $1,000 of real estate assessed value.
  • The current millage rates are:
    2017 – Fawn Township   –  0.750
