Do all volunteer firefighters and EMTs qualify for the Act 172 municipal earned income tax credit?

No. The local municipality must pass an ordinance approving the Act 172 municipal tax credit. Active volunteer firefighters and EMTs qualify for the credit by meeting the criteria set forth in the municipal ordinance. The municipality must certify that these active volunteers qualify for the credit each year. The municipality will then send a list of the qualified volunteers to the Tax Officer.
