Townships are the third-level administrative subdivisions of counties of Taiwan, along with county-controlled cities. After World War II, the townships were established from the following conversions on the Japanese administrative divisions:

Local laws do not enforce strict standards for classifying them, generally urban township has a larger population and more business and industry than rural township, but not to the extent of County-controlled city. Under townships, there is still village as the fourth or the basic level of administery.

Recently there are totally 194 townships in Taiwan, including 153 rural townships and 41 urban townships. Penghu County and Lienchiang County are the only two counties that do not have urban townships.

Names below are transliterated using the Hanyu Pinyin romanization system. Note that the county names do not necessarily use Hanyu Pinyin.
