PSD Codes and EIT Rates

Find your PSD Codes and EIT Rates

Understanding PSD Codes

PSD Codes (political subdivision codes) are six-digit numbers that uniquely identify each municipality—township, borough, city—in Pennsylvania. PSD Codes play an integral role in assisting employers and tax collectors to remit and distribute the correct amount of local Earned Income Tax to the correct taxing jurisdictions.

Employees are required to complete a Residency Certification Form upon hire (and with any subsequent change in address) in order to confirm the PSD Codes and EIT Rates being used by the employer for the employees’ local taxing purposes. Employers maintain this form in the employees’ personnel files.

Find your PSD Code by Address

Search the table below for PSD Codes, or utilize the Address Search Application to search for PSD Codes by address. For detailed instructions on using the Address Search Application, click here.

If you do not receive a return for your address on the "Find Your Withholding Rates by Address” webpage, try an internet search on the City and State of the home and work address to determine the County for each. Then, contact the Tax Collector/Officer to determine your local tax rates and PSD codes.

In combination, all SIX (6) digits of a PSD Code represent the political subdivision (PSD)—township, borough, city—in which the address is located.
