NOTICE TO RESIDENTS: With the recent winter storms we want to advise everyone that residents who lost trees and large limbs because of the heavy snow and winds must make arrangement with landscapers and/or tree removal services for their cleanup and removal.

Tax Day, April 17, is fast approaching. Our local tax administrator, Keystone Collections Group, just made e-file easier and faster. With clear graphics, an interactive format and a streamlined process, you can file your local return online, in minutes, using any mobile device. With e-file, you enter only the most basic information necessary to file your local return. You can easily transfer overpayments to your spouse’s balance due using the “Married Filing Jointly” option. You can file multiple returns from one e-file account, and you can view the status of your return(s) on the Home Page. Even if you work outside of Pennsylvania, you can now file online. If you moved during the year, e-file makes it easy to file your part-year returns for each of your home locations if Keystone is the tax administrator. Best of all – you can file your return today and schedule your payment for April 17 or before. You will get an online receipt for the payment. If you are due a refund, you’ll receive an online confirmation that your refund was deposited into your bank account. State law requires Pennsylvania residents with earned income to file a local tax return even if your employer withholds the tax from payroll or even if you are not due a refund. If you don’t have payroll withholding, work in Philadelphia and/or have net profits, you are required to file a local earned income tax return. Why wait? File online today with e-file.

Important News About Open Burning..Effective February 22, 2012 the Township has officially rescinded its Open Burning Policy and will no longer issue permits. This action is a result of formal notification from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PaDEP) that we are a mandated community under Act 101 and thus any burning is regulated by the state and we cannot supersede its authority. Based on the state law, the only property owners permitted to burn are those considered to be "working farms", defined as the production of agricultural commodities in their unmanufactured state on the premises of the farm operation. Campfires and ceremonial fires are also permitted. Yard waste is NOT permitted to be burned. Yard waste is defined as leaves, grass clippings, garden residue, tree trimmings, chipped shrubbery, and other vegetative materials. Because the Township is a mandated community we are responsible for the enforcement of this Act, and will do what is necessary to ensure that the Township and our residents remain in compliance with it.(Because of the volume of inquiries, we have decided to leave this on the website.)
