The office of Tax Collector is an elected office, with a four year term of office. Dorothy " Dottie" White was elected to this office in 1998, was re-elected in 2002,2004 and her current term runs until December 31, 2009. Please read her biography.
The tax office is located at 2132 Northway Rd., across from the swimming pool 1/4 mile north of Four Mile Dr. All Real Estate taxes for Loyalsock Township ( County, Township and School)are collected at this office.
Beginning January 1, 2005 Lycoming County went to a 100% assessed value system. This means the market value and the assessed value are now the same number. During the spring and summer of 2004, the entire County went through a re-assessment of property value. This value, multiplied by the millage rate of each municipality, equals the face amount of the tax.
Current millage rates are:
Lycoming County: 4.75 mills
Loyalsock Township: 0.7 mills
Loyalsock School: 13.1 mills
The County and Township Real Estate taxes are issued on the same bill in Loyalsock. This is generally a blue bill and issued the first week of March. The School Real Estate Taxes are issued the first week of July, and this is generally a white bill.
Per Capita taxes, which were on a pink bill, were eliminated beginning January 1, 2005.
