Linglestown Gazette: Lower Paxton watchdog, Dec. 2010

Lower Paxton watchdog, Dec. 2010

* Township supervisors approved a tax hike and increased a long list of fees for 2011. The property-tax hike isn't a big one – $17.50 more per year for a property assessed at $200,000.

To give you an example, I paid $91.88 this year on a residential property assessed at $105,000. With the tax increase, I'll pay $101.33 in 2011, which isn't a big deal when you consider all the services the township provides for residents.

Like other municipalities across the country, the township's finances have been squeezed the last couple of years due to the recession and lack of new development.

* In other tax news, Central Dauphin School District officials are taking preliminary steps required to ratchet up the district's property-tax rate this spring.

How are you only paying 91.88 in property tax
on a property assessed at 105,000?

The property taxes that go to Lower Paxton Township are a very small percentage of a property's total tax bill.

In 2010, $91.88 was paid to the township, and the total tax bill - including the $91.88 - was over $2,000.

Most of the property taxes go to Dauphin County and Central Dauphin School District.
