The ability for a municipality to levy a fire services tax is granted by the State legislature. The language provided by the State bases the method of taxation off of a millage rate. The Township has to follow the guidance from the State in regards to its method for establishing the tax.

Why is the Fire Services tax based on the value of your property? Shouldnt this be a flat fee for the residence of the township? Im OK with paying for the service, but make it fair. Doesnt matter if your property is $100,000 or $1,000,000. We all equally need this service.
