Supervisors Eliminate Property Tax Penalty Period
The Board of Supervisors approved a Resolution at their meeting on April 21st to eliminate the penalty period for township property taxes collected for the rest of 2020. The action extends the face value of the tax amount due through December 31st. The Union County Commissioners approved a similar measure at their May 5th meeting. All taxes listed on your tax bill can now be paid at the face value rate rather than the penalty that would have been assessed on bills paid after June 1st. (This change only applies to the county and township property tax and not the school district tax.)

Welcome to the official website of White Deer Township. We hope you will find it a useful tool for township information, forms and contacts.
White Deer Township is governed by a board of three supervisors elected at large by the voters for a six-year term. The board serves as the township's legislative body, setting policy, enacting local ordinances, adopting budgets, and levying taxes. Because there is no separately elected executive the board also performs the executive functions, such as enforcing ordinances, approving expenditures, and hiring employees.
The township supervisors generally meet on the fourth Tuesday each month at 7:00pm at the township building at 2191 Creek Road, New Columbia. Click the calendar tab to view all official meeting dates and times.
