Real Estate Tax Bill


You may notice a change in the way that your real estate tax bills look beginning in 2023. This is due to new tax software that is being used by the municipality. 

Douglass Township Millage did not increase from 2022 and will remain at 2.6 mills. 

Fire Protection Tax did not increase from 2022 and will remain at .4 mills. 

Emergency Medical Services millage was added in 2023 at .5 mills. This tax does not replace the annual ambulance subscription for membership. 

Street light assessments have increased for both improved and unimproved lots and are now included on your tax bill. You will no longer receive a second envelope for streetlight assessments. 

Montgomery County tax millage increased from 3.93 mills to 4.237 mills.

The Montgomery County Community College tax rate did not change in 2023 and remains at .39 mills.
