Why Did the District Tax Office Close on June 30, 2012?

On July 2, 2008 the Pennsylvania legislature enacted Act 32 an amendment of the Local Tax Enabling Act, Act 511 of 1965 with the goal of consolidating and simplifying the collection of Local Earned Income taxes on a countywide basis.

Under the new regulation, localities and school districts still set their Earned Income Tax (EIT) rate but the collection responsibility will fall into one of 66 Tax Collection Districts that are roughly congruent with counties, but are not a function of county government.  The Westmoreland County Tax Collection District (TCD) has selected Berkheimer Tax Collectors as the organization responsible for collecting the EIT for North Huntingdon, Irwin, North Irwin and Norwin School District.

 As of January 1, 2012, employers are required to withhold either the worksite non‐resident EIT or the employee’s resident EIT depending on which tax rate is higher. For example, if the worksite location has a 1% EIT and an employee lives in a locality with a 1.25% EIT, the employer will be required to withhold the resident EIT rate for that employee. In addition, every employee will be required to complete the Pennsylvania Certificate of Residency to validate the employee’s resident and worksite municipality. If an employee moves, a new certificate is required. One of the key pieces of information on the certificate is the Political Subdivision Code (PSC) for both the resident and worksite locations. These codes will be used to remit taxes to the correct locality, and to file returns at the end of each quarter.
