The Mercantile Tax (MT) is assessed on all retail and wholesale related business activities while the Business Privilege (BPT) is assessed on all other business activities.  Both taxes are based on gross receipts and require businesses to register for a license. 

BPT returns are required to be filed with Tri-State Financial Group, the Township's designated Tax Collector, by April 15 each year. Failure to file a BPT return or to pay any taxes due can lead to citations, fines, and suspension of the privilege to do business in Springfield Township.
