COUNTY/TOWNSHIP REAL ESTATE TAX BILLS
Cumru Township contracts with the County of Berks to print and send out the real estate tax bills. Those bills include two fees, refuse and SMP, which are applicable to some properties but not others. SMP refers to the Sewage Management Program for on lot sewage (septic) systems.
The 2021 tax bills were printed with a change in the designation of “SMP” to “sewer.” For those properties with an on lot sewage system, the “sewer” (SMP) fee line should have an amount of $65.00. For those properties connected to the sanitary sewer system or which are undeveloped, the “sewer” (SMP) fee line should have an amount of $0.00.
Sanitary sewer system customers will continue to be billed via the quarterly post card style bills.
