The Tax Assessor is responsible for the valuation of all real property within the Township for the purpose of taxation. Most property assessments will remain the same between revaluations (our last revaluation was in 2012) unless an improvement is completed that would effect the value.
Examples of some of these changes can be, but is not limited to the following, additions, porches, central air conditioning, fireplaces, decks, garage (attached or detached) etc. If a tax payer should remove any of the above items, their assessment may be reduced.
