Am I required to file a local tax return even if my employer withholds the tax from my paycheck?

Yes. State law requires Pennsylvania residents with earned income, wages and/or net profits, to file an annual local earned income tax return and supply income and withholding documentation, such as a W-2. Even if you have employer withholding or are not expecting a refund, you must file an annual tax return.

Please file your local earned income tax return every year by April 15 to avoid potentially receiving delinquent notices in the future.
