Payroll Withholding

The Local Tax Enabling Act requires businesses with employees working in Pennsylvania to withhold the appropriate local earned income tax and local services tax from payroll. Employers that do not timely pay local payroll tax may be liable for the tax plus statutory penalty, interest and Act 192 costs.

Find Your Collector

To determine if Keystone is the earned income tax (EIT) and/or local services tax (LST) collector serving your workplace location, access the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development Municipal Statistics.
