Townships were the brainchild of Thomas Jefferson. Andrew Jackson?s philosophy of direct democracy further shaped the township government structure that survives and thrives today.
Townships embody the values of "grassroots government." In townships, citizens contribute their talents, skills and ideas to preserve the quality of life and to deliver important programs and services.
Township officials live in the communities they serve and stay in touch with ever changing needs. Limited by law in the amount of taxes they can levy, township officials are creative in delivering quality services with the least possible burden to taxpayers.
Efficient. Effective. Accountable. Accessible.

Other Pennsylvania Taxes
Cigarette tax is an excise tax on the sale or possession of cigarettes and little cigars in Pennsylvania. The tax rate is $1.60 per pack of 20 cigarettes ($0.08 per stick), or $16 per carton of 10 packs, and it is imposed on the ultimate consumer.
Governor Wolf's proposed $33.8 billion budget would raise more than $4.7 billion by increasing several taxes, including a $1 per pack increase on cigarettes, bumping the tax to $2.60 per pack. The Republicans who control the Legislature have declared much of his budget dead on arrival, saying they want pension reform and privatization of liquor sales before they'll talk about tax hikes.
