Employers with worksites located in Pennsylvania are required to withhold and remit the local Earned Income Tax (EIT) and Local Services Tax (LST) on behalf of their employees working in PA. Examples of business worksites include, but are not limited to: factories, warehouses, branches, offices and residences of home-based employees.

The Pennsylvania Department of Revenue is conducting a study on the feasibility of a statewide system for local earned income tax collection. We encourage all those interested to complete a short survey, which will be available until July 31, 2018.
