The additional taxes generated from new construction (buildings, porches, decks, etc.) is equal to the amount the increase would have generated using the previous year's effective tax rate or reduced millage.  For example, if you contract a $100,000 new home, the home's value adds $100,000 to the total market value of that district.  Because of this new home's value, the township will collect an additional $17.42 per year.  Because the township (in this example) currently collects approximately $37,250 annually from the fire levy, this equates to an approximate growth of far less than 1% annually (since 1980) in tax revenues to that township's fire department
