This is the third year there won't be a tax increase for Antrim Township residents. At a special meeting to pass the budget last week, the Antrim Township Supervisors unanimously passed their 2013 budget. The budget not only held the line on a zero mill property tax rate, but also reduced an amusement tax. Township Administrator Brad Graham said the amusement tax affects three organizations and generates about $10,000 for the township. “In today's economy, it was a little bit of a burden, for all the more it generated, so rather than do away with it altogether, the supervisors passed a resolution to drop it from 3 percent to 0 percent,” Graham said.

The Antrim Township Supervisors on Tuesday unanimously approved a resolution to create a Local Economic Revitalization Tax Assistance (LERTA) program that it hopes will be a shot in the arm for the Greencastle-Antrim business community. The program provides incentives for owners of eligible commercial properties to undertake improvements by easing the usual burden of increased taxes that come with an improved property and higher tax assessment. “In the short term, it would mean less tax revenue, but in the long term, it would mean a potential for drawing in more business and more tax revenue,” Antrim Township Administrator Brad Graham said.
