All unpaid sewer rent and refuse fees will be filed as liens against the property with the Delaware County Office of Judicial Support and are paid directly to the Township.

By law, all taxes and fees are the responsibility of the taxpayer.
The PA Local Tax Collection Law (72 P.S. 5511.7 Section 7) states: "Failure to receive a tax notice does not relieve any taxpayer from liability for prompt payment of taxes imposed by the taxing district, and such taxpayer shall be charged with the taxes as though he had received notice."
If you do not receive your bill within a reasonable time period after the billing dates, please call the proper tax office.
