5. How do I process my name, address or bank change?

A written request must be sent to the Township for all changes; there is space provided on the back of your tax bill for these changes or you can use the Notification of Name, Address, and Water/Sewer Billing Changes form. Mail or fax your request to the Township office.

All Summer tax bill payments received after close of business September 14 are subject to a 1% interest fee until the end of September. There is then a 1% per month increase from October to February, with a 3% penalty after close of business February 14.

All Winter tax bill payments received after close of business February 14 will incur a 3% penalty.
