Under the new law Act 32, Pennsylvania's system for collecting local Earned Income Tax will be streamlined down to 69 new countywide tax collection districts. Starting January 1, 2012, all Pennsylvania employers (excluding those in Philadelphia) must withhold the local earned income tax as part of their payroll obligations. Cheswick Borough office will no longer collect local wage taxes for residents after the 2011 tax year.
Keystone Collections handles Cheswick's Earned Income Tax. Employers have withheld income taxes, paid it to Keystone and Keystone in turn, pays it to Cheswick Borough. Please reconcile your local EIT with Keystone as requested in the letter sent to all residents.
