The total amount of the real estate tax each household pays is determined by your assessed valuation. The combined total Township tax is 5 mills (4.4 mills Municipal Property Tax and .6 mills Fire Services Tax) or $5.00 per $1,000 of assessed value and represents approx. 11.8% of your total property taxes. If your house is assessed at $100,000, you pay $500 annually for which you receive the following services: police protection, street lighting, road maintenance, park and recreation activities, etc. A dedicated portion of the real estate tax supports the Goodwill and Temple volunteer fire departments.
It should also be noted that 1/2 of all monies generated from the township business privilege tax, local services tax and earned income tax are designated for the school system.
