William Keenan, West Goshen Township Tax Collector
The elected Tax Collector mails Real Estate Tax bills to property owners by March 1 of each year. The tax bill is computed by multiplying the tax rate, set by the Board of Supervisors of West Goshen Township, with the assessed value of the property. The assessed value is determined by the Bureau of Assessments, a County Government Agency.
The West Goshen Township tax rate is 2.0 mills.
The Township has appointed Keystone Collections Group as its Earned Income Tax Administrator. All taxes paid by Township employers, quarterly estimates from residents, and final returns (due by April 15) should be mailed directly to Keystone Collections Group. Any questions regarding these taxes should also be directed to Keystone Collections Group at www.keystonecollects.com or by calling 724-978-0300.
Real Estate Taxes, the Earned Income Taxes, and Transfer Taxes (levied at 1/2% on real estate sales in the Township) make up approximately 83% of the yearly income needed to support Township operations. Other income is derived from fees for building, plumbing, zoning permits; fines, interest on investments; and state aid, such as Liquid Fuels allocations.
