New Homeowners: If you own and occupy a home in Swan Creek Township as your legal principal residence, file a Homeowner Principal Residence Exemption Affidavit by June 1st for the summer tax levy and November 1 for the winter tax levy with the Township to claim an exemption from some school operating taxes for the tax year.

Qualifying residents and agricultural property owners may defer their summer taxes until the due date of the December taxes: February 28th, 2014.  Taxpayers who filed a summer deferment last year will be mailed an application for this year’s deferment. New applicants can obtain the applications at the Township Office. To qualify, a household income cannot exceed $40,000. The applicant must also be 62 years of age or older, paraplegic, quadriplegic, eligible serviceperson, veteran, widow or widower, blind or totally and permanently disabled. Taxpayers that farm agricultural real property may also qualify. Please call for more information.

Some forms are available on the FORMS page.
