PA House Resolution No. 291 required the PA Department of Revenue to conduct a feasibility study on the potential for a statewide collection process for the local Earned Income Tax. The Department of Revenue issued their report in December, 2018. View a pdf of the report here.
The CCATO Executive Board has adopted a resolution in favor of PA ACT 32 of 2008 and in opposition to changes in the collection process of the Earned Income Tax. Act 32 of 2008, which became effective statewide January 1, 2012, reformed the local earned income tax withholding system and established countywide tax collection districts for the remittance and distribution of local earned income taxes. Act 32 has been widely viewed as a success. As a direct result of Act 32, local taxing jurisdictions are receiving more revenue and are receiving that revenue expeditiously. Act 32 works for our residents and our local taxing jurisdictions.
