Moore Township friends: The 2019 Moore Township Real Estate and Per Capita bills have been mailed out as of Friday 2/22/2019. If you do not receive your tax bills in the next two weeks please call or email me so I can get a new bill to you. I have no way of knowing you may not have received your bills if you do not contact me. With the mass mailing there is no way to track or know if the original bill actually got to you. Please reach out via email at or my office phone 484-294-3798 if you do not receive it in the next couple of weeks.
If you want to drop off your payment instead of sending it in the mail but do not want to wait in line in my office, or my hours do not work for you, there is a locked drop box on my garage.
Lastly... The bright yellow insert included with your tax bills has information on it to help answer questions you may have: office hours when I'm open for walk in payments, what payments are accepted, how to make your check payable, where to mail if you mail your payment, etc.
Thank you!
Autumn Silfies, Tax Collector

Moore Township is a large, rural community containing 38 square miles in north-central Northampton County, Pennsylvania. The Township entirely surrounds the small Borough of Chapman Quarries. Two larger boroughs, Bath and Nazareth, are located to the south and southeast. The township has 6 different mailing addresses due to its large size; they include Bath, Nazareth, Northampton, Danielsville, Walnutport and Wind Gap.

The Moore Township Police Department and the Klecknersville Rangers Volunteer Fire Company provide 24 hour emergency services to the township. Moore Township is very rural and contains beautiful picturesque farmlands, woodlands and mountains. Framed to the north by the Blue Mountain, the Township has the famous Appalachian Trail, which runs through the Township. Agriculture and single-family residences, along with open space are the largest features that can be seen within the township. Despite the coming of the Industrial Age, Moore Township has remained largely rural in character.

In a series of meetings and questionnaires over the years, township residents said they value the physical beauty of the township, the openness of the land and the wildlife and plant life around them. Thus, in planning for the future they recognize the need to remember and preserve elements of the past.
