SANATOGA PA – Tax bills for money that supports the operations of Lower Pottsgrove (PA) Township, its two fire companies, and Montgomery County were mailed Monday (March 2, 2009) by township Treasurer and Tax Collector Jennifer Marsteller. They began arriving Wednesday (March 4, 2009) at most taxpayers’ addresses.
Marsteller announced the bills’ mailing Monday during the township Board of Commissioners‘ meeting. They’re expected to bring in $1.027 million in township revenue, she said. Payment is due by no later than June 30, but those who pay in full by April 30 receive a 2-percent discount. Those who pay late incur a 10-percent penalty fee.
The incremental fire tax increase, which represents an additional cost to taxpayers of about $9 on homes assessed at $150,000, was approved by the board last year. It offers a dedicated funding source from the township for the Sanatoga and Ringing Hill volunteer fire companies for equipment, supplies and training, commissioners say.
