Earned Income Tax

Earned Income Tax:

Plum Borough’s Ordinance 555-95 imposes an Earned Income Tax rate of 1% on gross earnings and net profits, and the tax is split evenly between the Borough and School District.

With the passage of Act 32 in 2008 there were significant changes associated with the collection of Earned Income Tax. There will now be one tax collector per county in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The exception is Allegheny County which will have four collectors, one being the City of Pittsburgh and the other three separated by regions.

Tax Collector:

Effective tax year 2012, Keystone Collections Group has been appointed the Earned Income Tax Collector for Plum Borough as a member of the Southeast Allegheny County Tax Collection District.

Employer Requirements:

Another requirement of this law is that employers must now deduct earned income tax for their employees. Your employer will be asking you to complete a Certificate of Residency that you must return to them. They will be asking for the Borough of Plum’s Political Subdivision Code (PSD) which is 720601 and the tax rate for Plum Borough / Plum School District which totals one percent (1%). Failure to provide your employer with the proper PSD code will result in lost revenues for the Township and your earned income tax being paid to another taxing jurisdiction.
