UNDERSTANDING YOUR REAL ESTATE TAXES
All owners of real estate in the township are required to pay real estate taxes to the Township, Blair County, and the Bellwood-Antis School District. All real estate taxes in Antis Township are collected by the elected tax collector, Stephanie Pennington. (Note that the tax office is no longer housed in the Antis Township Municipal Building, but in the home office of the new tax collector at .)
What Is a Mil?
One mil is equal to $1 of tax for every $1,000 of assessed property value. To calculate your tax, multiply the millage figure by your assessed property value. Don’t forget to add 3 decimal places to the millage figure to get the accurate tax. For example: a 5 mil increase on a home assessed at $20,000 amounts to 0.005 times $20,000, or $100 more in taxes.
