Prepare Schedule C Form first, then schedule B, then complete schedule A (Annual Township Budget Form). One copy of this document is to be filed in this office within 10 days after your annual meeting.
If you are levying for an excess levy make sure you are using the current form and proper documentation (publications and certifications of election) with your budget requests. On the certification of levy, please include any levy for the general fund levy, excess levy and GO bond levy. Download the form.
